In two centuries the styles of uniforms for soldiers in the U.S. Army have changed possibly more than civilian fashions. Variously colored uniforms as well as many devices of metal and colored cloth and braid have been adopted and worn by soldiers to indicate their affiliation within the army, their rank, or the special duty to which they might be assigned.

William K Emerson's Encyclopedia of United States Army Insignia and Uniforms is the first comprehensive, well-illustrated, fully researched, and completely documented history of U.S. Army branch insignia and the uniforms on which those insignia were worn. More than two thousand photographs illustrate the actual branch insignia used by men and women of the U.S. Army during war and peace from American independence to the present. This book tells the story of the major army branches-infantry, artillery, cavalry, and engineers-as well as the service and support branches comprising doctors and nurses, chaplains, musicians, quartermasters, military police, and the many others who have made up the U.S. Army. Insignia worn by all soldiers, such as eagles, devices with the letters US, and other letters and numbers, are also described and illustrated.

Historians, military collectors, military reenactors, antique dealers and collectors, costume specialists, army veterans and buffs, and those simply interested in the history of the U.S. Army will find this book a useful and fascinating reference tool. It will become the standard reference for quick and accurate identification and dating of insignia and uniforms.
