About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Insignia and Decorations of the U.S. Armed Forces by Grosvenor, Gilbert; et al.

Description:

Revised Edition. Good softcover. This copy is ex-library. It has been bound in a heavy card stock cover (using binding tape). This has served to preserve the contents quite well. The origninal book has few of the usual library markings--only a small stamp to the front and rear covers and to the title page. There is a small stain on the title page, otherwise (discounting the add-on cover) all is in quite good shape. Bookseller Inventory #

It has been published continuously since its first issue in 1888, nine months after the Society itself was founded. It primarily contains articles about geography, history, and world culture. The magazine is known for its thick square-bound glossy format with a yellow rectangular border and its extensive use of dramatic photographs. The magazine is published monthly, and additional map supplements are also included with subscriptions. It is available in a traditional printed edition and through an interactive online edition. On occasion, special editions of the magazine are issued. The National Geographic Society presents in this volume a complete revision of its Insignia and Decorations of the United States Armed Forces. In the revision the number of insignia shown in full color has been increased from 1,701 to 2,47, and new data have been added, recording official additions and changes up to December, 1944. In addition are shown the insignia of agencies officially cooperating with the armed forces, such as the Maritime Services, the Coast and Geodetic Survey, the Public Health Service, the Red Cross, and the United Service Organization. "E" and other awards granted to civilians for outstanding war effort are also included. Seller Inventory # 73251
