    Here are a few Pocket Guide books issued to US troops during WWII to show the cultures of the different countries they could be fighting in.

    Anything on LW/RAF uniforms and personal gear is more than welcome, plus I'm on the lookout for anything that can give me an idea of what the day to day life of a Luftwaffe pilot posted on the Channel front was like, so if you've got any files or can recommend any books, I'll be more than interested. ;)
    And grateful, of course. :rolleyes: :D

    Cheers,

    Maria.

    Hi Marie,

    I have the following but not much on RAF uniforms is Suttons publishing RAF hand book. Fleet hand book and the bomber hand book. Though if interested Ive seen them in pdf format. I can try and find them again and send you the link of you like. :D

    As far as the luftwaffe goes there is only one book on uniforms I can really recommend. Its called

    Air organizations of the Third Reich The Luftwaffe by Roger James Bender. Drawings of ranks, uniforms, badges, flags and stuff. Well worth the money.

    ISBN: 0-88740-474-X

    Thank you very much Micdrow, that's awesome! :headbang: :notworthy:
    And thanks for the title/author name of the Luftwaffe book, I'll see if I can find it somewhere in Europe. ;)

    I've heard that the books called "Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe" by John Angolia and Adolf Schlicht should be worth getting hold of; is that a book series that you know anything about?
    Here's a link to the first volume of the series:
    Amazon.com: Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe, Volume 1 (9780912138640): John R. Angolia, Adolf Schlicht: Books
    I think there's three or four books in the series, and judging from what I've read about it, it's a must have - but I'd like to learn more about the books before I eventually spend a small fortune on them. ;)

    Cheers,

    Maria.
