Great book for reference pictures and descriptions --By drew

From the Inside Flap

FOUR CENTURIES OF MILITARY TREASURES IN ONE HANDY PRICE GUIDE!

With its vast scope, The Official Price Guide to Military Collectibles covers pieces from such varied conflicts as the Revolutionary War, the Russian Revolution, the Civil War, both World Wars, the Boxer Rebellion, the Crimean, Boer, and Vietnam Wars, and countless others. Illustrated with nearly four hundred photographs, this unique price guide takes a historical perspective by focusing on the origins of objects and offers detailed descriptions taken from original source material.

COMPREHENSIVE.From armor to axes, flight suits to combat boots, army caps to green berets, ammo belts to mess kits, grenades to mortars, bayonets to badges and ribbons, The Official Price Guide to Military Collectibles has it all--with a special concentration on post-1700 objects from the United States, Germany, England, and the British Commonwealth.

BONUS FEATURE--HOME FRONT COLLECTIBLES.Often absent from other guides, home front collectibles are highlighted in this convenient sourcebook, including civil defense items and ration cards, military images (photos, daguerreotypes, post cards, tintypes), military paper (books, documents, letters, manuals), military art (folk art, posters, trench art), and military toys (games, playing cards, lead and paper soldiers).

WRITTEN BY AN EXPERT. With a strong background in weaponry and military history from the eighteenth century to the present, Richard J. Austin brings his more than twenty years of research and study to this reference guide. He is also an expert on naval affairs and warship design and development.

SPECIAL SECTIONS.Essential chapters cover the history of militaria, collecting and buying tips, a state-of-the-market report, a handy glossary, an indispensable bibliography, and lists of auctions, dealers, museums and collectors' clubs.

FULLY ILLUSTRATED, including a beautiful eight-page color insert.

Great book for reference pictures and descriptions. Very dated when it comes to prices though. Also double check some of the descriptions because some were a bit off.
