The US Marine Corps has been a key part of the US presence in a host of combat zones. While sharing some weapons systems with the other US Forces, the Marine Corps has developed its own distinctive approach to matters of dress, personal equipment and armament. The most important trends are a new generation of camouflage clothing, body armor, and night-vision equipment, which have transformed the appearance and capability of the individual rifleman. The men and women of the USMC have been at the forefront of these developments, utilizing innovative items of dress and equipment during their extensive service in a range of challenging environments across the world. Featuring specially commissioned full-color artwork and detailed photographs, this book explores the USMC's key contribution to the development of the combat infantry soldier's clothing and personal equipment in the 21st century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This 64-page paperback concisely details the Marines key contributions to unprecedented rapid changes in the combat infantryman s appearance and abilities. Particularly notable have been developments in camouflage, body armor and load-carrying equipment, as well as the acquisition of off-the-shelf commercially produced items. Because the subject matter is modern warfare, readers will find that this book is peppered with superb color photos, with many made available due to the USMC s cooperation. Add a number of excellent color illustrations to the equation, and this book is a visual gold mine for history buffs, militaria enthusiasts and model figure hobbyists."
