Insignia and aircraft markings of the Eighth Air Force in World War II, with Volume 1 covering (VIII) Bomber Command. Relying heavily upon visuals, "Battle Colours" fills a long standing void in the annals of the Eighth Air Force. This volume focuses on all forty-eight Bomb Groups comprising the Eighth and features colour illustrations depicting the evolution of all fuselage, wing and tail markings assigned to the individual units. Details concerning the proper size, placement, colour and configuration of all tactical markings of US Bomber Command are addressed. Group and squadron combat insignia as well as airfield location maps for each unit are also depicted. All bombardment units incorporated within the Eighth are indexed and easily cross-referenced by squadron, group, wing and division assignments. Additionally, all major components comprising the Eighth have been organised into quick reference organisational flow charts that show the actual Order of Battle for the "Mighty Eighth". This book is an invaluable tool for anyone with an interest in the history of the US Eighth Air Force in World War II.
