With the way the battlefield has evolved over the last ten years, the soldier's equipment has had to evolve accordingly.
Although the media often show the US Army Boys right in the heart of the fighting in Afghanistan, and up until recently in Iraq, their equipment, material and weapons have never been shown in detail.
This book has now done this, drawing up an exhaustive list of the equipment used by the US Army's infantryman (but also the helicopter pilots and the armoured vehicle drivers)- from the boots to the wrist computer, via the assault rifle and the winter uniform - and the programmes intended to make the soldier even quicker, even more effective and better protected.
