    Default Field Gear Books

    Being bitten by the field gear bug, I need some advice on books that deal in details with the field gear. I have all the Ospreys as well as some other general uniform/gear books but nothing that goes into detail e.g. rucksacks etc.
    Any suggestions as appreciated - thanks.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Meyle 77 The only detailed one that comes to mind is by Robert Fish Field Gear of the Worlds Army's it came out in the 80 or so and may be out of print it had all countries in it WW1 and I believe WW2 I saw one on Amazon not long ago. It is in all color photo's I used to own it my friend has it now and I still borrow it occassionally from time to time. There may be more but this is the only one I can think of for now. timothy

    Angolia's "uniforms & traditions vol 3" has a lot
    Brian Davis's book "German Uniforms & Insignia" has some
    Dal McGuirk " Rommels Army in Africa" also
    These are ones I know of .......

    Though I dont have any books to add to the list I do agree that field gear is a problem I cant seem to get over . Got a couple of things that will be in shortly that I may post, but I tend to hold things back because they never seem to get commented on in here.

    The "Histoire & Collections" series are good ones to get hold of if you can. (They tend to be "generic" though)
    Good clear photos of genuine equipment/uniforms worn by re-enactors, the translation from French to English is a bit "dodgy" in places as well.
