Volume five in the series, this book provides a detailed study of the traditional sack coat, frock coat, and jumper/bellbottom trouser uniforms worn by the American Navy throughout World War II. Additionally, cold weather outfits, khakis, dungarees and working uniforms worn by Seabees, beach battalions and shore parties are highlighted. With over 1,200 previously unpublished contemporary and archival illustrations, documents and reconstructions, this is truly an epic volume. Special focus is devoted to rare and unusual tailor made uniforms featuring "liberty cuffs" and custom embroidery. Original experimental uniforms tested in 1946 are featured for the first time in any reference book. Also included are women's WAVE, Nurse Corps and Flight Nurse uniforms with heretofore unequaled coverage. As a bonus, the complete 1941 U.S. Navy Uniform Regulations with all wartime changes and amendments is included on CD-ROM.
