UNIFORMS OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY DURING THE CRIMEAN WAR 1854-1856
This book looks at the organization, uniforms and the regiments which made up the army of Tsar Nicholas I during the Crimean War. Not only does it cover the regiments which served in the war, but also other units such as the Russian Imperial Guard and the Separate Caucasus Corps, which have not been covered by others books relating to the Crimean War.
The Army itself has got a bad reputation from historians because it was outfought by the Anglo-French Army during the war. However this was because the army had been let down by government officials in not re-equipping the army with modern weapons rather than any cowardice on the part of the Russian soldier. Of course in a book of its size it is not possible to cover all the auxiliary units that also made up the Russian Army at this time, such as the interior regiments.
