About this product
- DescriptionThis book covers all uniforms issued and worn by the Marshal of the Soviet Union, Marshals, Generals and all field rank officers from 1955 to 1991. It features a well researched and illustrated history of each type of uniform, the period it was approved for and how it was made. However, this book is t just about describing and showing pictures of Soviet officers' uniforms. It contains a comprehensive collector's and buyer's guide, designed primarily to help enthusiasts identify what they might wish to purchase. It provides anecdotes of the author's purchasing experiences, including the various traps awaiting the inexperienced uniform collectors. Its contents will help any student of the Soviet military identify uniforms properly, and hopefully distinguish an original from a reproduction.
