The Soldier's Foot and the Military Shoe is a fascinating and informative treatise on the importance of footwear for soldiers and military personnel, with chapters on preventing and treating related injuries, foot anatomy, characteristics required for a military boot, caring for and maintaining the foot in war conditions, and much more. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in historical military footwear, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Foot Injuries and Marching Capacity", "The Anatomy and Use of the Foot", "The Military Shoe", "The Fitting of Military Shoes", "Shoe Supply", "The Care of the Feet", "The Sock", and "The Care of the Shoes". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
