• Lavishly illustrated collection of uniforms, weapons and equipment for the French defending soldier

Thanks to more than ten years’ researching and analysing military archives, pictures and equipment, the author reviews all the uniforms, equipment and weapons used by the infantrymen, in the continental and Scandinavian theatres of operations.

The items are shown in colour with all the details needed for clear identification. Because of the unequalled range and the variety of the items presented, this work is a must for all French 1940 memorabilia collectors, but also for those who are interested in World War I equipment because of the number of items inherited from this period and the very complete and detailed way the tools, the harnesses, the small items of equipment and the collective weapons are presented.

REVIEWS

Quite simply a stunning reference on the French soldier of 1940. Add to this Tome (Volume) 2 as well, and we get a magnificant reference work that is worthy of the 10 years research that went into it.
