Description


This book is a comprehensive collector's guide to Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) civilian contractors' private-purchase and service-issue clothing, equipment, and weapons as they were worn and used in the field between 2002 and 2014. A host of detailed photographs show what civilian contractors both in combat and in non-combat roles looked like in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is the first militaria book that presents actual configurations of clothing, equipment, as well as weapons of civilian contractors in as near to realistic configurations as is practically possible. The majority of items presented in this book are bringbacks from Iraq and Afghanistan, where the author worked in different capacities as a civilian contractor. Items shown in the book used to be the author's own work clothes, equipment and tools, or they belonged to fellow contractors who worked with him in different places at different times.
