INTO THE BLUE

Uniforms of the United States Air Force 1947 – To Present

By:

Lance P. Young

Bill Boyd, Johnny Schlund, and Dave Shultz

Published by Schiffer Military Books

 

“Into The Blue…. is indeed a scholarly and complete book

of the Air Force uniform transition from the

Army Air Corps to the United States Air Force…  

"Into the Blue" richly deserves a resounding

“Well Done!” for the extensive research

and the stunning layout.” 

GENERAL JOHN L. PIOTROWSKI, USAF (RET.)
