Item description for FRENCH AIRBORNE TROOPS WINGS AND INSIGNIA: From the Origins to the Present Day by Jacques Baltzer...

This book was originally announced over a year ago under the title Insignes et Brevets des Parachutistes Franaises and was, unfortunately, delayed. Now it is on track again and will be available at the very beginning of January.

Not only does each parent organization in the French airborne forces have its own enamelled badge, but the French generally produce a special badge for each major operation or exercise.

The Bilingual text of this unique work accompanies over 3000 full-color photographs of badges and insignia, (captions in French), covering units as well as operations in the Persian Gulf, Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo, Lebanon, Chad, Somalia, and elsewhere.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about FRENCH AIRBORNE TROOPS WINGS AND INSIGNIA: From the Origins to the Present Day?

All show, no go...  Aug 18, 2006
The hundreds of excellent photos in this book are the only things that are keeping this book from getting a one star rating. I purchased this as a reference book, not as a picture book. However, there are no dates of usage on the 1000+ badges listed in this book, no constuction information other than a list of manufacturers, no photos of the reverses of the various manufacturers fact there is absolutely zero useful information in this book.

If you are looking for tons of pretty pictures of French badges, and don't mind spending $30.00 or so for them, then this is the book for you. If, on the other hand, you are looking for information on French badges......keep looking, as this isn't it.
