5.0 out of 5 stars Little known uniforms, but valuable to the uniform researcher/collector 6 Jan. 2015
By Ronald Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased this volume because it was the follow-on to volume 1, and would contain information on uniforms not commonly worn or seen beyond many special functions in the Air Force. It is an outstanding record of formal/semi-formal, ceremonial and evening dress, along with some of the functional uniforms for the police force, flight nurses and other distinctive uniforms. If your interest doesn't extend beyond the service dress uniforms, then this volume may not interest you, for everyone else interested in other uniforms worn by Air Force members since 1947 this volume will provide you with much more information than from any other source I have come across in the past. I have a small collection of insignia and uniforms, and I was able to identify an item based on information in this book. This alone made it worth the cost. I am eagerly awaiting the third volume which is said to cover field uniforms (fatigues, BDU, etc). If you are interested in the history of United States Air Force uniforms, this volume and volume one will be very useful to your research.

5.0 out of 5 stars 66 years of fascinating uniforms 13 Nov. 2014
By Alice L. Medin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This 2nd in a trilogy of seminal gatherings by well qualified author Lance Young builds upon the well received Volume One to present less seen, but thus, more fascinating uniforms over the years since the creation of a seperate Air Force in 1947.
Each page is a snapshot in time over the 66 years of coverage where a veteran airman can re-explore his or her era of memories
as well as the roots proceeding that time and the transitions in the years beyond. So fascinating is this five star volume that I
devoured it all in only five evenings.
While e-mailing my congratulations to the author, I was thrilled to learn from him that work on the third volume centering upon
fatique uniforms is nearly complete. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into the Blue, USAF Uniforms vol. 2 17 Mar. 2015
By Nelson L. Ragan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Very well done and lots of good quality photographs. This book covers a lot of ground on subjects that are not well covered elsewhere.
On the negative side the book could have used an editor. Some sentences are duplicated in a following paragraph. Photo captions are in a very small typeface and many photos do not have captions at all, In at lease one case the same caption is used twice to describe two different photos while one photo on the same page doesn't have a caption.
As of this writing, I haven't finished reading the book. Considering the sheer volume or material covered, the negatives I've mentioned do not detract very much in the overall appeal of this volume and I'm anxious to see additions to this series. I would highly recommend this book ro anyone who has an interest in the history of U.S. Air Force uniforms and insignia.

Volume II of Into the Blue, along with its Volume I counterpart, I believe is a definitive work on US Air Force uniforms. There are no other references to be found that are as comprehensive in regard to USAF uniforms. Women's USAF uniforms are also included which has been for many years ignored by other reference type books. The photography is outstanding and it is a great color photo guide along with an extensive written history. Kudos for such a great reference book. Is there going to be Volume III.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money 3 Oct. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

It was also worth the wait for this book. The area of military uniform collecting is small, and books on the USAF uniforms are few, the two published in this series are the best I have found so far for the various uniforms of the USAF. I have an interest, if only to have information on the uniforms I wore and on the ones I have kept from my military career. What I like best about the books are that WOMENS' uniforms are covered, going back to the U.S. Army Air Corps days.
