Uniformes de la Guerre de Sécession, Philip Haythornthwaite, Michael Chappell

It is a popular misconception that la Guerre de Sécession was fought between Union et Confederate armies uniformed in dull blue et drab grey respectively. In fact, both armies included exotically-named corps dressed in a variety of European styles whose gorgeous uniforms compared more than favourably avec the most ornate of Napoleonic France – Zouaves et Chasseurs, Hussards et Écossais, Lanciers, Bersaglieri et Riflemen.

This book illustrates the regulation full dress et service dress et the modified versions of every branch of both armies, et those of a large number of early volunteer et militia regiments. Over 150 uniforms are illustrated, et more than 60 others are described in the text. There are separate sections on insignes de grade, badges, beltplates et buttons.

This book also includes an historical introduction on the events de la Guerre de Sécession, a comparison of the capabilities of the various artillery et small-arms of both armies, et the Order of Bataille de the opposing forces at Gettysburg 1863, making it invaluable to historiens, uniform enthusiast, modéliste et joueur de guerre alike.
