During World War II, the United States Playing Card Company produced decks of playing cards at the request of the U.S. Military for both entertainment and instruction. The “Spotter Cards,” issued to soldiers and civilians, featured the profiles of Axis (Germany, Italy, Japan) and Allied (U.S. and U.K.) aircraft to aid in the identification of planes during combat and civilian defense.

History of manufacture, combat service, and technical specifications are included with each entry. Featured plans include:

The World War II Spotter Cards set is a fascinating look back at the pre-jet era of aircraft—ideal for plane enthusiasts.
