Military Badges and Insigniaby Mark Lloyd, Chelsea House Publishing
Commandos, Rangers, Marines, the Foreign Legion & Naval Infantry demonstrate the interesting range of this book. The badges & insignia of 40 of todays most exciting military formations are described through full color artwork & photos, with detailed accounts of their exploits & history. Since the rise in terrorism, a number of elite units nowadays only wear their full insignia within the safety of their own barracks. However, some units, notably the U.S.s Green Berets & the British Parachute Regiment, continue to wear their berets & distinctive insignia in action, arguing that the very sight of them strikes fear in the hearts of the enemy.
