While looking for other things I came across this new book published by Battenberg on the medals and badges of aviation. Here's the Google-translated
text from the publisher's web page. -Editor

This book is the first attempt to depict the medals, plaques and badges of aviation until 1945 in their diversity and beauty. The reader will get the biggest
rarities. At the same time, it opens up the technical development of the hot air balloon on the gas balloon and the motor-powered airship and - starting from
the possibilities of the engine - up to the aircraft. 2100 objects and more than 3500 photos. A great book in a small numbered edition.
