The Marines in WWII : From Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay (G.I. Series, 21)
by Christopher J. Anderson
Book Description 125 illustrations; 14 in color 7 x 10 In this brilliantly illustrated book, Christopher Anderson examines the uniforms and insignia worn by the United States Marine Corps in World War II. Marines were particularly distinguished, earning a superb reputation for daring amphibious assaults, and at Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Tarawa, Iwo Jima and Okinawa the USMC took tremendous punishment but ultimately triumphed. A total of six divisions of Marines fought in World War II, sustaining 87,000 casualties, and this book throws light on their role. The photographs presented in this book show the Marines as they actually appeared in World War II - uniform and equipment evolved and varied according to conditions - and form a unique resource.

by Lee A. Rutledge

Campaign Clothing: Field Uniforms of the Indian War Army (Part. 2 1872-1886)
by Lee A. Rutledge
This second volume in the "Field Uniforms of the Indian War Army" series covers the period 1872 to 1886 when the foundation was laid for the modern "Army" uniform. The stockpiles of clothing left over from the Civil War were dwindling away and Congress and the Quartermaster Department had begun to succumb to the begging and pleading of officers and enlisted men on the frontier for new, properly designed uniforms. Rutledge traces the development of new trousers, jackets and undershirts the ancestor of today's "T-shirt", coats, boots and cold weather gear. Again, the emphasis is on what the regulations called for and what the soldiers actually wore when on campaign. Hollywood never got it right. If any cavalry trooper ever wore a yellow bandana, he bought it himself. White hats were never worn they gave your position away and were too hard to keep clean. Fancy leather gloves were privately purchased, not issued, and the buffalo overcoat for cold weather wear was issued sparingly because they were very expensive. For every regulation quoted, Rutledge provides at least one, and often more, quotations from Army personnel showing how the issue item was modified, really worn or substituted. Line drawings and period photographs accompany the text.

The World War II GI : US Army Uniforms 1941-45 in Color Photographs
by Richard Windrow, Tim Hawkins]
Regarded by many as the best book on WW2 American uniforms.
This remarkably accurate and well-photographed record captures the World War II GI's uniforms in all seasons, on all fronts, and in all types of missions. Authentic uniforms, personal weapons, and kits from leading private collections are realistically depicted on live models who are posed before such authentic backdrops as an M4 tank and the very beaches used for pre-invasion D-Day training exercises.
