The book is an absolute authority on the subject of WW2 USAAF uniforms and insignia with a wealth of full colour photographs. This book is a must for military historians and WW2 re-enactors alike.

HASH(0x9a78839c) out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE FOR MILITARIA ENTHUSIASTS! 18 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best reference book that I have found so far for identification and history of USAF wings. A book like this pays for itself the first time you use it as a buyer, seller, or collector.

HASH(0x9aac70f0) out of 5 stars Outstanding reference for WWII wings, insignia and uniforms. 2 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For collectors of WWII wings and related insignia, this is an outstanding reference guide. Normally, reference books on wings contain errors relating to the wings period of manufacture, however the author is on the mark each time. The photographs are excellent, including a short section on hallmarks. Highly recommended!!

HASH(0x9abcbb34) out of 5 stars Outstanding clarity on the photos 26 Mar. 2010
By Carol Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got this for my husband who is a collector; the color & descriptions allow him to find and research whatever it is that he is trying to document. If you looking to add to your research library, don't overlook this book. It is well worth the money. Just a great book.

HASH(0x9a93e4a4) out of 5 stars this book has many appealing aspects 25 Feb. 2000
By Jesse I. Carnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am 2LT Jesse Irwin Carnes [USAF-CAP, 16010th Composite Squadron]. I REALLY recommend this book by Jon Maguire, i.e., "Silver Wings, Pinks and Greens." Anyone who is SERIOUS about collecting WWII militaria, especially uniforms, pilot's wings, etc., then THIS book is SINE QUA NON ... it is indispensable.
So, how is it SO indispensable? It helps you know WHAT to look for when you collect militaria from this genre. It helps you to develop an "eye" for what is correct in authentic items.
Secondly, Jon Maguire's descriptions enable you to KNOW what WIEGHT or colour or texture a GENUINE article should be.
Any suggestions for a "Revised" edition by Maguire? He might want to add a 1-2 page writeup on the "Best-of-the-best" militaria items, such as A-2 flight jackets by "RoughWear" [no longer in business] or uniforms [and especially officer's visor service caps] by the inimitable "Luxenberg" [also no longer in business] and so forth.
Secondly, sometimes his foto light was a shade deviant, so that the reddish-russet officer's officer's shoes looked more tan-brown. How do I know? I own an "NOS" [new old stock] pair of UNissued officer's low quarters. They are a burnt-orange reddish-brown, like some of the early war visor service caps.
I also own a full set of officer's PINKS, and under flourescent light, they look mauve/pink. His fotos looked more khaki.
But this can be improved in time. Nonetheless, this book rates 5 stars for EFFORT and for its overall USEFULLness.
BTW, if Jon Maguire reads this, can he write me for suggestions and queries?
thanx ;

HASH(0x9a788720) out of 5 stars Silver Wings, Pinks and Greens 23 Feb. 2006
By Glynn R. Furr, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Only book of its kind I could find. Referred to me by a true expert in WW2 Army Air Corp flight ware, patches and pins. I found it not only complete, factual and full of information but very personal at times;
