Kurt H. Keller, Co-author of United States Army Shoulder Patches continues the definitive study of military insignia with Emblems of Honor, the first of a new series of titles which will document the development of U. S. shoulder patches from World War I to the early Cold War period. Covering a wide range of Armor, Cavalry, Tank Destroyer and Constabulary insignia, this new volume provides a valuable all-in-one reference for collectors and students of military history. With many never before seen images gleaned from extensive research and hundreds of detailed photos of a wide variety of rare and unusual insignia from some of the best private collections in the United States, this book is a must have for every patch collector or military historian.
The highlights of this monumental work include many unique World War I Tank Corps. Insignia, the prototype 1st Cavalry Division patch and rare images from the personal albums of many senior officers. With a recently uncovered official drawing of the 1st Cavalry Division patch, this book finally sheds light on the confusing array of branch color variations approved for wear during the interwar period. Topping it all off is a handy series of charts and orders of battle that will help military insignia enthusiasts understand the evolution and role each unit played in World War II and the early Cold War.
