I have been a student of military history for as long as I can recall. I have never before found a more complete and more perfectly illustrated source for military service decorations and medals. The awarding criterion, histories, proper wear, order of prominence... all these details are covered, from the highest honor to the most basic of awards.The color templates in the book are not to be missed, and I have to agree with the author, LTC Aldebol... If you can own only one Air Force book, this is the one to own!
I found my father's old Air Force medals in a box upstairs one day and had no clue what anything was. I ordered this book and it was the answer to all my problems. This book has extensive detail on each medal, badge and insignia. After spending a few days reading this book I was even able to put all of his medals together in a shadow box. If there is anyone who is in the same boat I was, this book will help you out tremendously.
