US Army Vehicle Markings 1944 (9781612007373)

Casemate UK




There are certain vehicle markings everyone is familiar with, the White US Star for one. However there are may more markings on military vehicles which the casual observer knows nothing about at all, from unit code letters, to tactical markings, through to bridge weight, and even during this time period debarkation codes for the invasion of Europe. Using a combination of historical photographs, and colour diagrams this publication looks at all the markings seen on US vehicles o the period. The book also looks at the camouflage used on these vehicles. 




The Book is split into the following areas;


1. Arsenal of Democracy - Looking at the US diverse production of all vehicles for the military.

2. The Communications Zone - That area away from the front line in operations, including re-supply and support units.

3. Organization of the US Army - Looking at the specific equipment allocated to units of the US Army.

4. Common Markings - From registrations, to National ID markings and usage markings.

5. Unit Markings - Army regulation AR-850-5 defined the markings for units. Also looks at USAAF vehicles, and tactical markings.

6. Camouflage - This looks at different camouflage patterns suggested.




The book is hardback 254mm x 203 mm and 160 pages long. Iti s full of black & white photographs, a few colour ones and may colour diagrams of vehicle markings. The printing is first class. 



This will be an invaluable resource for the modeller of US Army vehicles during this time frame. Very Highly recommended.
