Description: "This book is a companion to the very successful Army Uniforms of World War 2. It is the first book to cover the naval and air force uniforms of the main belligerents and their allies during World War 2. As in the earlier volume, the marvellously accurate illustrations depict officers and men as they actually appeared in the great naval engagements and air battles of this period. Many of the illustrations are actual portraits (based on contemporary photographs) of the ordinary sailors, marines and airmen and also of senior commanders, who will be instantly recognisable."
Features almost 250 stunning, full-colour illustrations presented on high-quality, glossy plates. Also includes wonderful depictions of Naval Officer swords and Air Force Officer daggers.
Blue cloth boards with gilded text on spine. Corners slightly bumped; spine is straight. Jacket is tanned and has a 4 cm (1⅔″) closed tear on rear. Unusually, the inside flap has been clipped, but the price of £3.95 remains printed alongside. The book is in superb internal condition.
