Webmaster Review

Excellent book on U.S. Army Air Forces distinctive insignias (DIs). The book includes a history of USAAF DIs, black and white photos of DIs and complete descriptions to include heraldic descriptions, approval dates and manufacturing information. While this work does not picture any patches, it serves as an excellent reference work that can be used to help a patch collector identify patches from this era. While out-of-print, I recommend you consider adding it to your reference material if you can find a copy.
