Now Available – “US Marine Corps Recon and Special Operations Uniforms and Equipment 2000-15”

Osprey’s latest, “US Marine Corps Recon and Special Operations Uniforms and Equipment 2000-15″by J. Kenneth Eweard is an excellent resource for the historian, collector and modeler. My copy arrived last week and it’s an excellent read, delving into not only the equipment selections but also who was involved. When you look at the acknowledgements, it’s a “who’s who” of government and industry giants. They offered not only insight but also photographs that really enhance the book’s content.

There’s a lot of information packed in these 64 pages and it’s very well researched. While the title takes us back to 2000, the book actually covers equipment from the 1990s.  The author/illustrator also wrote Osprey’s “US Marine Infantry Combat Uniforms and Equipment 2000–2012” which is also an excellent reference.

    This better have two things:

    1. A chapter dedicated to front pockets.

    2. A disclaimer warning Staff NCOs and boots that the enclosed images may cause seizures, heart complications, and/or brain aneurysms.
