New book, 192 pages. Slight rubbing wear to cover. All insignia of the French Airborne Troops are shown in this book, from the origins before the Second World War to the present. The last publication on this topic was made more than twenty years ago and deserved an up-to-date and a more modern version. Moreover, several hundred new insignia have been struck since then. To make this inventory and to introduce those insignia, the author was helped by the best specialists on the subject who have not hesitated to open their collection and to lend their rarest insignia and brevets. This bible includes 1,800 real size colour photos. Dual French/English text.
