Army Badges and Insignia

  • Title: Badges and Insignia of World War II
  • Authors: Guido Rosignoli
  • Published Date: 1983
  • Description: "Badges and insignia are the heraldry of the services; they help us to trace their history and give us a fascinating insight into their varied and complex functions. This exhaustively researched and meticulously illustrated book collects together the badges and insignia worn by the personnel of the major air forces, navies and marine services who participated in World War II. Many lesser-known and unofficial badges have also been included and, where relevant, details of the historical background are given, making this one of the most comprehensive volumes available on this subject. Over 2,500 colour illustrations and a factual, informative text combine to produce a book which both the collector and the novice will find useful and absorbing. Guido Rosignoli has devoted many years to studying the badges and insignia of the modern fighting services; this volume is a compilation of two of his best known works."--Jacket.
