U.S. Army Uniforms of the Cold War describes the evolution of Army uniforms in the quarter-century between World War II and the Vietnam War. Stanton traces and explains the different uniform systems from their conception through their actual field development and issue during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Photos illustrate the progression of uniforms, supplemented by drawings of clothing and combat field items. Also shown are special-purpose clothing and equipment for use overseas and in domestic security missions, including in American civil disturbances of the 1960s. Cold- and wet-weather clothing, protective suits, and parachutist and diving gear are also highlighted. An appendix covers barracks clothing and equipment inspection displays that were part of every soldiers life.
