Excellent book,detailing the invention and ongoing design and modification to the A2/G1 jacket we see today.
The only thing I wished that they should have included..Would be on the last couple of pages,give all the manufactures names amd the Type of zipper used,the weave in the sleeve and waist line,and where there factories are located eg: state
These things may sound a little silly, but if your are interested in the A2 these are the questions asked,what zipper has it got??,is there leather sown in under the label to hang it??
But having said that, the book is not just interesting but excellent!!

This is a great book if you are an aficionado of leather flight jackets! My only complaint, and I use that word lightly, is that the book tends to focus more on the G-1 rather than the A-2. Of course this is probably due to the author being a naval aviator, so I can't fault him there! If you can afford it or find it at a lower price, I highly recommend this book if you want great pictures, interesting stories and a thorough history of the A-2 and G-1's, and even to a lesser extent, the B-10's and other non-leathe4r jackets.

Brilliant! By the time you read it cover to cover you'll know more about the history of the A-2 and G-1 Flight Jackets. Lavishly photographed and filled with great information.
