BeschreibungFrom the bitter Arctic cold to the sweltering South Pacific, Army Air Forces personnel flew countless missions in extreme conditions throughout World War II. Providing suitable clothing to various crewmen aboard many different types of aircraft proved a monumental task. This volume documents the development, testing, manufacture, procurement and utilization of flying apparel and accessories worn by American airmen around the world between 1941 and 1945. Among the garments explored are various types of flight suits—including heavy winter shearling suits and electrically heated suits—flight jackets, flotation gear, headgear, handwear, footwear and underwear. With appendices that include contemporary military brochures detailing the care and maintenance of flight clothing, this study provides a thorough exploration of a rarely examined aspect of the military during World War II.
