From the rear side cover: This book describes the history of the little-known emblems and distinctive markings of Russian military aviation from the early origins of domestic military aviation up to the Russian exit from the First World War. The authors have managed to collect, and in some cases partially reconstruct, the majority of emblems and signs used in Russia during this period by military aviation units. The collected material is presented in a clear and attractive form - color plates, reconstructed logos, and original photographs from public and private archives. This profusely illustrated book covers all the aircraft used, with brief details of their service use and comprehensive details of the colors and markings they carried. Besides the many photos, full color profiles illustrate the markings applied. Detailed color notes and precise descriptions and illustration of national markings over the period complete a book that will be invaluable to aircraft enthusiasts, historians and modelers.
