Hi guys,

As some of the Forum members are already aware, I have a penchant for collecting US Army British-Made uniforms and equipment. In addition to this, for the past 3 1/2 years I have been researching the topic both here in the British Archives, and in the US National Archives. I am pleased to say that all of the research and collection has now been combined into a reference book dedicated to the subject.

The book is entitled WD: British-Made US Army Clothing and Equipment (ISBN: 978-0-9931150-0-4), and is available through Overlord Publishing > http://overlord-publishing.com/collecti ... -equipment. It will also be available through Amazon shortly.

The book is a hardback (casewrap) with 108 pages, and is in A4 format (210 x 297mm).

The book is now in hand and I am pleased with the results. I will attach a few photographs for reference. I will also be attending the Great Malvern show tomorrow, and will have copies with me for purchase.

Thanks,
Ben.

Thanks, Nick. It looks like the forum software has added a superfluous full stop to the link. Anyway, here's the correct URL:

http://overlord-publishing.com/collecti ... -equipment

Thanks again,
Ben.
