From the Publisher

“See the insignia, markings, camouflage, and colors of the 1939-45 air squadrons in photographic detail! Because of the dearth of color photography at the time, most of these particulars have appeared only in artwork. Yet these 350 genuine images show the bright red engine cowling rings, yellow propeller bosses, and gray paint of many World War II aircraft. An exhibit of group and squadron insignia reveals humor, individuality, and attitude.”
