In The Service of Our Country

 

The History of The

United States Service Flag

Jerry E. Dutscheck

 

The U.S. Service Flag is a unique area of Americana. In this comprehensive study of the US Service Flag, author Jerry Dutscheck has gathered together more than 280 Service Flags and related artifacts – over 500 photos in total – including many previously unpublished from private collections. The scope is not limited to just flags and banners, but includes such things as badges and other awards, posters, magazine covers, even patriotic recordings and sheet music. Jerry Dutscheck spent more than nine years meticulously researching these flags and their stories.

A must for collectors, historians and anyone interested in the pageantry of Service Flags.

348-pages, large format 8.5" x 11" (215mm x 280mm) profusely illustrated with color and b/w photographs, most of which have never been previously published.
