From the publisher:

The nose art that decorated World War II aircraft is well known, but images and slogans, innocent and not, decorated land vehicles, too. Norris’ book displays several examples (original or faithfully re-created) of the art that adorned military vehicles of both Allied and Axis forces in both WWI and WWII. Official unit markings, such as divisional badges and emblems, as well as decidedly less-official renderings of pinup girls and cartoon characters are included. Text and extended captions set the artwork in context and explain the development and evolution of vehicle and other equipment art, chiefly in Europe through two world wars.

FSM says:
Artwork from A-Z, ranging from Betty Boop and Bugs Bunny to Vargas and Wimpy — guys just wanted to have fun taking the drab out of olive. Entertainment for the casual reader and a valuable reference for vehicle restorers and modelers alike. All color photos.
