Summary

The uniforms of the nineteenth century are some of the most colourful and varied in history. In this book there are artworks of Austrian hussars, Prussian dragoons, French chasseurs, American continentals and British grenadiers, but also grim Boer farmers, ferocious Zulu, Apache and Sioux warriors, Boxers from the Chinese rebellion, and Sepoys from the Great Indian mutiny. As well as illustrations of the uniforms, equipment and kit, the expert text examines the organization, tactics and experience of the armies, where a century of war saw the beginning of a new era. This volume presents not only a visual directory of uniforms, but a portrait of the political, military and social contexts of the soldiers of the time.
