Modern British Webbing Equipment Paperback
Part of the Europa Militaria series
Since the end of World War Two and the increasing threat of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare during the Cold War, equipment designers have focused on building NBC protection and decontamination into the British soldier's webbing equipment.
The capabilities of 1958-pattern webbing were known to be very poor, yet it was not until the exposure of its shortcomings during the Falklands War of 1982 that a suitable nylon-based load-carrying equipment was developed.
