Product Description & Reviews

This new book is the companion volume to Glenn's 2006 "United States Marine Corps Uniforms, Insignia, and Personal Items of World War II" (see page 57 of this catalog). With numerous rare and never before published war time photographs, "782 Gear" is the most in-depth pictorial study of the many patterns, and variations of Marine Corps field gear - known then as "782 Gear" - that U.S. Marines carried in the Pacific War. The author also visited the island battlefields he's written about and conducted field endurance tests with original Marine Corps gear to give the reader a more complete understanding of how each piece of equipment endured the rigors of combat. With this unprecedented level of research, "782 Gear" is, along with its companion volume, the World War II Marine Corps collector's guide book and bible.
