Whether interested in military history in general, orders-of-battle, unit heraldry or making the most accurate model possible, this title will be a boon to all.
The text summarizes the history of the formation being covered in the volume at hand. Insignia are rendered in both black & white and full color, so the reader will be better able to pick out sub-elements when viewing contemporary photographs. The photographs themselves have been selected to focus on the insignia being discussed. The color illustrations cover all of the unit insignia - both the "official" versions and the variants, as well as a number of "one offs" - as well as illustrate the insignia as applied to a variety of vehicles.
The high point for modelers is the addition of several separate water-slide decal sheets with examples of all of the insignia covered in the main text in all of the standard modeling scales: 1:35, 1:72/76 and 1:48.

All units have a brief description, including the establishment date, unit structure, and the unit history. A numerical sequence is provided within the unit history text, which relates to the seven plus pages of full colour unit markings within the book. This is very handy, as the decal sheets are not referenced.
