Osprey Men-at-Arms 342 : The US Army in World War II (1) : The Pacific

When World War II broke out in September 1939 the US Army - starved of resources since 1919 - numbered just 174,000 men. By VJ-Day, 2 September 1945, a total of 8.3 million had served in an army which had risen to a stable strength of 91 divisions, and which had fought in Europe, Africa and Asia. The Army's contribution to the ground war against Japan - 20 divisions and numerous smaller units - has tended to be overshadowed by the dramatic exploits of the much smaller Marine Corps. This first of three titles describes and illustrates the organisation, uniforms and equipment of the US Army in the CBI and the Central and South-West Pacific from 1941 to 1945. Text by Mark R. Henry with illustrations by Mike Chappell.
