Full disclosure, I am a gear junkie. If there is a book on web gear, I am on it! So I had to get "American Web Equipment 1967-1991." Having begun my Army service in the era of ALICE gear, I didn't think I would learn too much from this book. I am happy to say I was wrong, as there was a lot of information to be gained from "American Web Equipment 1967-1991." The author focuses on the development & improvement of web gear, so the reader can see how each 'generation' of web gear was an evolution of earlier equipment. I enjoyed this book thoroughly, and I recommend it.

"American Web Equipment 1967-1991", part of the Europa Militaria Series, is a short (64 page) handbook on the personal load bearing equipment used by the U.S. Army between Vietnam and Operation DESERT STORM. It is likely to appeal primarily to collectors of militaria who want to be able to identify and appreciate individual items of equipment, but it may also be of interest to students of the history of the U.S. Army. The book offers a short but detailed history of the transition during Vietnam from cotton duck-based webbing equipment to the more durable nylon-based individual load systems. The transition went through several experimental phases, but the end result was lighter and more durable equipment for fighting and existence loads. Towards the end of the period covered here, tactical load bearing vests made their appearance, a system that would come to full fruition during the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns. The very readable text is enhanced by an extensive selection of photographs. Recommended to fans of militaria.

I found this book very disappointing. I have several from this series and this one is the worst by far. The layout is poor and the illustrations are poorer with no detail. There's not as much information supplied as you would expect from a book if this price, and there's a great deal of common gear it doesn't even touch upon. A real "Thumbs Down".

This review will probably not make it past the editors, but if it does, save your money.

Fantastic book detailing the load carrying and sustainment equipment carried by the US Army from the Vietnam Era to post Desert Storm. I attended Field Artillery (13 Bravo) One Station Unit Training at Fort Sill, OK in 1991 and was (and still am) very familiar with much of this equipment. I retired from active duty in 2013 so I witnessed much of the evolution of CTA-50 that was issued over that time. I highly recommend this book.

Perhaps my expectations are excessive, but I was expecting a more information and graphics describing how the various items where used.

Good general reference. Could use more detail, recovers a lot of ground covered in the volume on American Web Equipment 1910-1967
