Relying heavily upon visuals, Battle Colors fills a long standing void in the annals of the Eighth Air Force during World War II.

All bombardment units incorporated within the Eighth are indexed and easily cross-referenced by squadron, group, wing and division assignments. Additionally, all major components comprising the Eighth have been organized into quick reference organizational flow charts that show the actual order-of-battle for the Mighty Eighth.
