About this title

Synopsis:

Modern Body Armour traces the development of individual ballistic protection from the multi-layer silk garments and metal plates used during World War One and through to the Korean War and Vietnam, to the state-of-the-art amour currently used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Contents include the Chemico Shield and Infanterie Panzer of World War One, USAAF aviator's amour of World War Two, the Korean War M1951 and M1952A, and the IOTV and USMC Scaleable Plate Carrier currently used by US forces. This work illustrates all of the primary amour patterns in use with the world's major nations from 1914 to the present day. The volume is a companion to the author's Camouflage Uniforms and Tin Hats to Composite Helmets that together provide a concise reference to the combat soldier's equipment over the last 100 years.
