The United States Marine Corps EAGLE, GLOBE, and ANCHOR EMBLEM: 1868-1963 Pictorial Guide
This new book on the EGA has been long awaited and is a welcome addition to Marine literature. The author takes the reader on a historical adventure from the first emblems in 1868 through all the changes in regulations and styles. It is rich with 2,300 color photos plus stunning period portraits of the EGA in wear. Klie does an excellent job of covering the various eras and changes to the emblem that transitioned. He illustrates the changes and variations of emblems (front and back) designed by makers such as N.S. Meyer, Vanguard, Officers Equipment Co., and many more who supplied the Corps. The rich detail, even down to the various attachment devices through the decades, are presented in a well researched, easy to follow guide. This volume will be the standard reference on the subject. It reads well, has wonderful design, and will be a treasured addition to any reference library. There are many surprises for Marines, collectors, and researchers alike.
