U.S. Army Vehicle Markings 1944

Jean Bouchery, Philippe Charbonnier

Price – $37.95 USD

The ultimate guide to the markings used on U.S. Army tanks, lorries and Jeeps in 1944, invaluable to historians, modelers and collectors.

Everyone is familiar with the iconic WWII Jeep, its green paintwork annotated with white letters, numbers and symbols. Unintelligible to the casual observer, these markings were integral to the organization of the U.S. Army on the move in 1944.

This uniquely detailed guide covers all the markings used on American tanks and tracked vehicles, lorries and jeeps to denote their unit and classification, plus tactical markings and the debarkation codes used in the Normandy landings. Hundreds of contemporary photographs are paired with precise color diagrams to show exactly how markings appeared on vehicles, including the exact measurements, and explain all the different variations in use. A final chapter covers the variations of camouflage used on vehicles.

The perfect reference book for modelers, collectors, and restorers of historic vehicles, and a fascinating guide to anyone wanting to use WWII photographs to aid their research.

Jean Bouchery, born before the war in Normandy, is a renowned specialist of the Allied Armies of WWII. He has authored several best-selling books.

Philippe Charbonnier, born in 1962, is a journalist and editor of the French Militaria Magazine, and specializes in the United States forces of World War Two.
