Uniforms of the American Revolution, John Mollo, Malcolm McGregor

This newest volume in the Macmillan Color Series makes a timely appearance for the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence of 1776. In a series of 220 magnificent full-color illustrations, it covers the principal army et naval uniformes des armées Américaines, Britanniques, Allemandes, et françaises which took part in the Guerre d'Indépendance Américaine, et includes several plates du costume amérindien of the period. They provide a unique et colorful survey of one of the great epochs of military history.

Les uniformes des troupes Britanniques, Allemandes, et Françaises conform, on the whole, to regulations. The Americans, both revolutionary et loyalists, neglected to record for posterity the details of their military dress, but the author et artist have supplied these from various reliable sources – portraits, lists of equipment issued to the Continental Army, advertisements for deserters in contemporary American newspapers, et the latest research data on the subject - et deliberately stylized their figurines to retain the flavor of the period. In addition, early paintings, drawings, et prints have been used whereever possible. The uniforms are primarily arranged by campaigns, avec plates giving details of flags, head-dress, et weapons.

John Mollo, is a well-known expert on military dress et an author et illustrator of several books on the subject. He has also supervised the uniforms for such films as The Charge of the Light Brigade, The Adventures of Gerard, Nicholas et Alexandria, Bequest to the Nation, et Stanley Kubrick's version of Thackeray's Barry Lyndon

Malcolm McGregor's illustrations for Macmillan's Uniformes de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale have elicited high praise, et in his latest volume he has again based many of his paintings on actual people of the period.
