Description

The widespread interest in the American soldier's dress and equipment in World War II has never before been served by a major book recreating the GI's appearance by color photography. A striking study that takes techniques to a new level; live models, wearing an enormous range of authentic surviving uniforms. This book will be hailed as a "bible" by militaria collectors, modelers, illustrators, film wardrobe departments and anyone with an interest in World War II soldiers. Superbly illustrated with 280 color photographs. Richard Windrow is a life-long military modeling hobbyist and Tim Hawkins is an experienced military photographer. New in paperback for 2008.
