This is the second volume on the Allied Nations flight badges written by Robert Pandis. As with the other books in the series it is an exceptional work. This notable reference work examines the British Empire, American, Belgian, Japanese, Italian, and Serbian Air Services for the period prior to the commencement of hostilities in 1914 through to 1918. It covers in detail the development of insignia worn as well as the related government orders for their creation. Of the emblems’ details he provides information on the nature of when, how and by whom each was to be worn. These particulars provide an interesting side story in the development of early military aviation, and give insight into the establishment of the various air services. Format: 9″ x 12″. 480 pages, hardcover.
