Description

Collecting uniforms of the Soviet Union is fairly new, because the Soviet regime did not collapse until December 1991. This book picks up the story of the women in Soviet military and paramilitary uniform that came into service in 1941, and takes the reader all the way through to 1991.  Extensive effort has been made by the author to include every possible detail relating to Soviet women’s uniforms in all military and paramilitary services. Translated tables providing an extensive look at rank, service and Corps identification have been included.   The book features an extensive amount of information for the collector of Soviet women’s uniforms – not just through photographs and illustrations, but by providing buyer’s tips and important information to help identify originals from reproductions. There are no illegal fakes around, because the Soviet Union never had any copyright laws in this area, but there are many new items on the market which are being passed off as original, like those produced by TV, film and theatre suppliers. This book will help the discerning collector spot the difference.

The author

Adrian Streather was born on Christmas Day 1958 in Basingstoke, England, but is an Australian citizen. Adrian, a less than successful racing driver of Ford Escorts many years ago, has friends who actually drove the original Ford GT in competition. Listening to their stories created the desire to write about the Ford GT. However, it was driving the new Ford GT on a European road trip which really inspired him. Adrian is a prolific automotive author.
