Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Indispensable for collectors of insignia, this book not only describes the Army's awards for marksmanship in great detail, but also covers their history and the story of Army marksmanship training, courses, weapons and the soldiers who used them. Bill Emerson's books have a way of becoming the prime reference source on a given military subject as soon as they're published, and this book is no exception.

An excellent history of U.S Army marksmanship. While this is of obvious use to collectors, the real value to me was the history of marksmanship training and programs.

I wish there was more details on more of the specific courses of fire used to earn these various badges but this has great info.

Format: Hardcover
The author has written a panoramic,detailed history of marksmanship, with many little-known facts and interesting tidbits of information. This book, like his previous works, would be an ideal gift for anyone interested in military history or competitive shooting.
