Hi all,

The author of the book mentioned in the previous postings was indeed
written by Jon Gawne. Jon maintains a website at
At this site, you can find books for sale, plus assorted other items
and lots of neat links to all types of militaria, vehicles, uniforms,
etc. He sells his book for $35 which includes postage, plus you can get
the book signed with an inscription, if so desired.

Jon, is a good guy. I've dealt with him on a couple of transactions and
he is very knowledgeable on the US 20th century soldier and equipment.
