Volumes 1-6, From the Publisher

"This book series has already become THE AUTHORITY on USAF patches, and continues to gain wider acceptance each day. They have been bought and are utilized by such organizations as the USAF Simpson Historical Research Center of Air University, the Smithsonian Institute, the U.S. Army Department of Heraldry, and even the Library of the C.I.A. The illustrated guides each contain roughly 1,350 USAF insignia pictured in black and white. Insignia are laid out numerically and alphabetically, with an average of six per page."




Insignia of the Persian Gulf From the Publisher

"325 patches in full color plus historical text lifted directly from the DoD Report to Congress on the Gulf War. Contains very extensive listing of units that participated in the Persian Gulf War, or have rotated in and out of the "sand box" area since. This is the most informational data on Air Force unit participation published to date."
