This 64-page paperback concisely details the Marines' key contributions to unprecedented rapid changes in the combat infantryman's appearance and abilities. Particularly notable have been developments in camouflage, body armor and load-carrying equipment, as well as the acquisition of 'off-the-shelf' commercially produced items. Because the subject matter is modern warfare, readers will find that this book is peppered with superb color photos, with many made available due to the USMC's cooperation. Add a number of excellent color illustrations to the equation, and this book is a visual gold mine for history buffs, militaria enthusiasts and model figure hobbyists.
