I just spent the past few hours going through this incredible book on Desert uniforms and patches.. Once you have it in hand it will be very difficult to put this book down until you read it from cover to cover. Each page I turned in anticipation left me looking forward to what the next pages had to offer. The book is filled with amazing pictures, detailed information and variations of insignia that was produced. Halfway through the book I found myself getting my desert shoulder patches out and comparing them to the variations in this book. I just could not put this book down.... It is that Awesome!!!
This is without a doubt a top notch and top shelf book written by 2 great Militaria enthusiasts (Kevin and Al) with a passion for preserving and recording history. This book is going to be at the forefront of Desert insignia and uniforms for a long time coming without any doubt in my mind, and it will be the go to reference book for the short lived Desert uniforms and insignia worn by the Armed Services..
This area of collecting of DCU uniforms and insignia with the printing of this book will once again gain much attention and popularity, and those looking to start collecting desert insignia will need to arm themselves with this book for knowledge and information..
Kevin and Al, once again, your tireless efforts are well appreciated for this area of collecting that up until your book, very little was known or printed in such a vast quantity all in one source for the collector of Desert insignia and ephemera.
For those members who are considering buying this book but have not yet done so, I might suggest that you get yours ordered quickly before they sell out.
Thank you again for a great reference book.... and Kevin, you were right, I thought page 121 was incredible. It was almost as if you knew those 2 units that I served in were my passion, and to have both of them on the same page was a tribute...
My best Christmas gift this year and the best overall Militaria addition to my collection for the year 2016...
