The Crimean War is sometimes considered to be the first modern conflict, and it introduced technical changes which affected the future course of warfare. The uniforms from the period are some of the most colourful and varied in the history of uniformology.
In this book there are artworks of familiar Austrian hussars, Prussian dragoons, French chasseurs, American continentals and British grenadiers, but also grim and desperate Boer famers, ferocious Zulu, Sioux and Apache warriors, Boxers from the Chinese rebellion, and rebel 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 men-at-arms of these pivotal and formative times, where a century of war saw the beginning of a new era.
