The book has no citations and dwells solely on the author's and others personal collections

Covering in detail the combat and dress uniforms of the United States Marine in World War II, this new volume is destined to become the World War II Marine Corps collector’s reference! Shown in detail are the herringbone utilities that Marines wore from Guadalcanal to Okinawa. The book has no citations and dwells solely on the author's and others personal collections. Pages and pages are devoted to redundant points such as dye lots and fading. Often his observations are half-baked and pure conjecture (. just because you have an example in your collection doesn't mean you can form an entire hypothesis around it).

A special chapter is dedicated to Marine Corps shoulder sleeve insignia, and "Strikers" that Marines wore from 1943-1947. Other chapters discuss foul weather gear, footwear, headwear, personal items, souvenirs and loot, and a special tribute to the Navy Chaplains who faithfully served Marines in combat. This book is filled with an endless array of unpublished and seldom seen wartime photographs, as well as beautifully shot full-color clothing and equipment layouts.

The Uniforms of the United States Marine Corps serve to distinguish Marines from members of other services. Among current uniforms in the United States Armed Forces, the Marine Corps dress uniforms have been in service the longest. The Marine Dress Blue uniform has, with few changes, been worn in essentially its current form since the late 19th century. The Marine Corps dress uniform is an elaborate uniform worn for formal or ceremonial occasions.

The United States Army in World War II used a variety of standard and non-standard dress and battle uniforms, which often changed depending upon the theater of war, climatic environment, and supply exigencies. Army basic service uniforms consisted of a winter service uniform of olive drab wool worn in temperate weather and a summer service uniform of khaki (tan) fabric.

The use of archival and color photos get old quickly as the author uses himself as a model and tries to looks tough. He doesn't do this a couple of times, he doesn't he throughout the ENTIRE book. He fails miserably at trying to look tough. Additionally there are numerous inaccuracies throughout the book. Don't waste your time or money on this book. This book embarrasses Marines everywhere.

I think the previous reviewer was unfair in his criticism of this book. Clearly it lacks the citation found in 'Grunt Gear' but generally these collector's books are lacking in citations, and that is what makes 'Grunt Gear' so good. This book's strongest point is the collection of colorful shots portraying original uniforms and gear. The dioramas are not terribly necessary but certainly don't take away from the book's purpose.

I couldn't care less that Glenn is not and was never a Marine (and for the record, he has nothing to worry about legally). He has presented a very good reference for collectors and reenactors by photographing his collection along side original photographs. I bought this book years ago and I still refer to it often.

I would suggest buying this book in conjunction with "Grunt Gear", and don't bother buying "USMC Uniforms and Equipment" because it is essentially a lower quality version of Glenn's book and "Grunt Gear".

A valient collector's effort, but filled with inaccuracies, half-truths, and God-awful editing. How can one profess to write a serious history regarding Marine uniforms and equipment and never even set foot in a museum? The book has no citations and dwells solely on the author's and others personal collections. Pages and pages are devoted to redundant points such as dye lots and fading. Often his observations are half-baked and pure conjecture (i.e. just because you have an example in your collection doesn't mean you can form an entire hypothesis around it). On the positive side he does make nice use of archival photos, but the effect of this is spoiled by the curious inclusion of himself (not a Marine veteran) posed, mugging funny "tough guy" scenes dozens of times throughout the text. Furthermore, his R. Lee Ermy attempt at a writing style is purely amateur. An exclamation mark after every sentence is a bit ridiculous, even in the world of Marines. Ethically he should be ashamed. At the end of the book Mr. Glenn asks for veterans, "wishing to contibute" to write to him at an address that asserts the pseudo-militaristic title, "TTO Harlan Glenn c/o USMC" despite the fact that he has nothing to do with the actual Marine Corps, its museums, or any other official history organizations. He is lucky that he hasn't heard from a lawyer*(That can be read with or without an exclamation mark). --Save your money. Buy the new book, "Uniforms & Equipment" book or the pricier standard "Grunt Gear."
Great collector reference...must-have for every WWII USMC collector!
