So I'm slugging away laying out Volume 3 and a thought had occured to me. While reading along, you'll find a lot of foriegn nomenclature or designations that aren't really in any mainstream jargon. Fear not, subsequent chapters will clear all that up. As an example, I refer to first aid kits under multiple nomenclatures, this will be confusing. This next volume has that comprehensive chapter on that particular subject and will clear it all up. You'll also find some antidotes leaving you hanging to where I only make a quick note about something. This was intentional, because you have to read other chapters that have an extended lineage about that item. The way the first four volumes were designed was that you get an initial education, then once you familiarize yourself will all chapters in all volumes, you go back through and that clearer image materializes. A really good example was compasses, it has its dedicated chapter. Overall, it would have way too many tangents if I tried to talk about everything at once.

Just recieved both volumes today. A very high quality product and well presented too. Unlike many military collector books on the market, these are not based soley on one individual's items, collector myths and hearsay. Dustin has spent YEARS gathering original vintage documents and photos that form the basis of his work and provides detailed color photos of surviving examples of the featured items as well. Don't pass these up. Along with the two additional future volumes, these books will be the gold standard on the subject.

Got my two volumes yesterday and like the other Forum members have said, incredibly detailed and well researched work. Tremendous amount of information and I can hardly wait to sit down with some time to read and absorb all that’s in the chapters. It appears both definitive and scholarly on the subject and I eagerly await the next two volumes already! Wonderful reference and addition to my library. Thanks Dustin!
