More Information
The French Army in 1939-40 was going through a profound transformation. The concepts which had prevailed until the end of the 19th century where uniforms & material were concerned, were about to disappear & give way to more modern ones thanks to mechanization & technical progress. The equipment which French troops were issued with turned out to be varied, & therefore studying it is complex.

Thanks to more than ten years of research & analysis of military archives, pictures, & equipment, the author reviews all the uniforms, weapons, & equipment used by infantrymen, gunners, troopers, sappers, & medics in the continental & Scandinavian theaters of operations. The items are shown in color with all the details needed for clear identification. Because of the unequaled range & the variety of the items presented - some of which are very rare - this work is a must for all French 1940 memorabilia collectors. This book is also important for those interested in WWI equipment because of the numbers of items inherited from this period & the detailed presentation of the tools, harnesses, small items of equipment, & collective weapons.
