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.

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.
