American Airborne Ads book by Ken Peck
With his recent book ‘American Airborne Ads of the 20s Thru The 50s’, Ken Peck has really outdone me by finding even more period ads with paratroopers in them than I have assembled in my article about ads with paratroopers.
These colorful ads (and many black and whites too) are not only great for framing, but they give an interesting insight into the prestige of the early parachute troops, the evolution of their uniforms and equipment throughout their development during the war, and how corporations promoted their contribution to the war effort to the American public.
The book is written in English, Spanish, French and German and features 200 pages of period print ads, cartoons and magazine covers, all with paratroopers.
