"Much of the American public first gave serious notice to naval aviation following the highly successful cinematic release of Top Gun in 1986. In reality, of course, naval aviators had already been playing a starring role of their own in faraway battle zones for decades. One major contributing factor to this sustained display of performance throughout the world is the strong unit identity cherished by navy fliers.

Pete Morgan's new book, The Elite of the Fleet, Volume 1, is a dazzling photographic chronicle of the unit patches that symbolize aviation. While not claiming to be the mythical "complete" guide to aviation patches, The Elite does show over 800 of them, magnificently photo-graphed in full color. Carefully organized by type of unit, the 90 color pages average about 9 patches each. Whether you're an aviator, collector or historian, you'll find The Elite of the Fleet, Volume 1, to be a great reference and an absorbing pageturner.
