Al (CW4AFB) and I are proud to announce the upcoming release of our new book "Desert Uniforms, Patches, and Insignia of the US Armed Forces". This almost 400-page book includes over 1,000 photos, and will be available on 28 December 2016 from Schiffer Publishing.
The book is the result of nearly two years of research, writing and editing. We reached out to numerous collectors and veterans for background and images. The book would not have been possible without the help of many fellow forum member here on USMF. The result is a comprehensive reference that provides detailed pictures of desert uniforms, patches, and insignia worn by the US Armed Forces in combat from Desert Storm, through Somalia and in the more recent hard fought campaigns of Iraq and Afghanistan. We have covered the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and even the Coast Guard.
More information can be found on Schiffer’s website: http://www.schifferb...orces-6112.html
We also have a Facebook forum that not only provides updates on the book, but also has turned into a place where other collectors share their images of desert uniforms and insignia: http://www.facebook....s/DesertUniform
"Desert Uniforms, Patches, and Insignia of the US Armed Forces" is available now for pre-order by most major booksellers in the US as well as in Europe and Asia.
