Best Vietnam War Insignia reference?

Recommended Posts

An oldie but a good one to start with... Selected U.S. Army insignia of the Vietnam War by James McDuff.


A lot of us started in this hobby with this one.


It is in black and white, but most of the insignia are subdued, so it really does not make much of a difference.  It's a good one to study for embroidery styles and assembly techniques.


Another good thing about it is that Jim and Ival Lawhon shot the photos for the book before the market was flooded with reproductions from Vietnam in the 1990's.  He's got one or two in there that I have questioned (and I have told him that), but overall the great majority are good.
