MILITARY UNIFORMS OF THE 19th CENTURY: An Illustrated Encyclopedia

MILITARY UNIFORMS OF THE 19th CENTURY: An Illustrated Encyclopedia
by Smith, Digby and Kiley, Kevin

1-193980

This comprehensive illustrated directory of the uniforms of the most significant wars of the 19th century contains over 500 images of clothing, weapons, insignia, and kit. It covers the key national conflicts, discussing how the nature of warfare changed in struggles between Liberalism and Conservatism and between the old order and the new.

Chapters cover the Crimean War, fought by Russia, Turkey, British, and French; Wars of German and Italian Unification fought by the Austrians, Prussians, French, Danes, Piedmontese, and Neapolitans; US Civil War fought between the Union and Confederates; Boer War fought between the British and Boers; and Colonial uprisings that occurred in India, China, and America.

It contains an unprecedented wealth of illustrative detail, with color artworks of uniforms, battle scenes, technical drawings, and campaign details, together with contemporaneous color plates and dramatic fine art paintings -- more than 450 color illustrations.

A definitive analysis of the weapons, equipment, deployment, tactics and motivation of these national forces, as well as fascinating detail of day-to-day life for the soldiers that fought the battles. All together, the book brings to life the experience of 19th century soldiers on campaign.
