US Army of World War 2 by Mark R. Henry

Book Description

It was the Mediterranean theatre which saw the blooding of the US Army against the German Wehrmacht, in North Africa in the winter of 1943-44 of World War II (1939-1945). After this rough education the US forces pressed on to Sicily, the South of France and the Italian mainland. Here, faced by difficult terrain, they and their British Commonwealth allies fought a long campaign until VE-Day. This second of a series of three MAA titles covers the uniforms worn on these fronts, including US Army cold weather, airborne and tankers' gear; some particularly interesting and important units, including mountain, Japanese-American and African-American troops; and a variety of crew-served weapons.
