9780786493968: United States Army Aviators' Clothing, 1917-1945

The beginning of World War I saw thousands of army and navy aviators who needed specialized clothing that could not be purchased off-the-shelf. During World War II pilots and crews flew countless missions in extreme conditions, from the Arctic to the South Pacific. Through both wars, providing suitable clothing to personnel aboard many different types of aircraft proved a monumental task. This book documents the development, testing, manufacture, procurement and utilization of flying apparel and accessories worn by American airmen around the world between 1917 and 1945. Among the garments explored are various types of flight suits--including heavy winter shearling suits and electrically heated suits--flight jackets, flotation gear, headgear, handwear and footwear. With appendices that include contemporary brochures detailing the care and maintenance of flight clothing, this study provides a thorough exploration of a rarely examined aspect of military history.

Review :

Reviews of the first edition: "the first volume devoted to the development, manufacture, and use of American flying clothing before and during the war.... Over 150 detailed photographs, many of them never before published, will help the book's user to identify types of suits, jackets, headgear, handwear, and footwear." --Air Classics Monthly

"Destined to be the definitive reference on this subject for both the military historian and the collector." --Air Force Magazine

"This specialized book will be of most interest to the collector, the historical researcher and to those few 8AFers who must have everything written, which is remotely related to the 8th AF experience." --The Eighth Air Force Historical Society
