Experience the rich history and heritage of WWII bomber jackets in a new coffee table book, now available from the EAA bookstore. This visually stunning book features over 100 premium photographs of authentic and rarely seen bomber jackets from nationally acclaimed museums such as the Smithsonian Air & Space and the 390th Memorial Museum, and from 37 privately owned family collections. Each jacket is accompanied by detailed information about the airman's combat history and stories that have long been forgotten.
There are chapters on the fashion and cultural impact the jackets have had, a discussion on collecting the jackets by a noted appraiser, and an FAQ section on caring for a jacket, authoritatively written by a professional conservator. With an index, the 12x12 inch, 398 page book is arguably the definitive source in this genre. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to own a piece of history.
