Osprey Men-at-Arms 347 : The US Army in World War II (2) : The Mediterranean

It was the Mediterranean theatre which saw the blooding of the US Army - and Generals Eisenhower and Patton - against the German Wehrmacht, in North Africa in winter 1943-44. After this rough education the US forces pressed on with increasing skill and determination to Sicily, the South of France and the Italian mainland. Here, faced by difficult terrain brilliantly exploited by General Kesselring, they and their British Commonwealth allies fought a long and punishing campaign until VE-Day. This second 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. Text by Mark R. Henry with illustrations by Mike Chappell.
