This is the most comprehensive and detailed book written about the German Luftwaffe Pilot and Combined Pilot and Observer Badges of WW2. Exhaustive research led to all variations to be presented. The result is a beautiful box set with two volumes and a total of 620 pages. All pictures are high quality and large enough to show every detail of an original. Pilot Badges are quite large and the book reflects this by its size of 8x10 inches, which allows for larger pictures, as well as more room for descriptive text. The contents of each volume are attached to provide you with what is included:
Introduction of the Luftwaffe, training in the Luftwaffe, and award regulations. All Chapters begin with a full descriptive spreadsheet with all data and each variation is covered with high quality pictures. In depth study of all three types of the Pilot and Observer Badges with Diamonds. 52 award cases of the most common and rare examples, followed by all matching awards. The best cloth and bullion groups ever shown with in depth study. Awards certificates, miniatures, post-war Souval and S&L badges. Presentation of the most common and dangerous reproductions. Many pictures of the badges in wear.
Both volumes are printed on quality paper and all come in a strong and rigid protective slip case.
