Uniformes de Combat de la Guerre de Sécession

This outstandingly illustrated book explores not only the major conflicts, et escarmouches plus petits, often won ou lost by the actions of individual units, but also the full range of uniforms worn by both sides de la guerre de sécession.

Many people think of huge anonymous ranks of gray-coated Confederates et blue-clad Unionist hurling themselves suicidally at each other’s pre-arranged defensive positions in huge set piece battles. This is, however, only a small part of the truth. Major battles such as Gettysburg did take place, but most battles were little more than short, sharp escarmouches fought between limited contingents over a short period. They were, however, as often as not bloody, heroic, et crucial for all that.

Similarly uniforms, particularly in the early stages de la guerre, were not as drab as popularly imagined. Both sides relied upon local loyalties to entice men to the Colors et in many instances local governors armed, equipped et kitted out whole regiments of militia from their own pockets. It is not surprising therefore that such units were not only highly subjective in their loyalties but highly individualistic in their dress. Early battles might well have taken place in Europe half a century ou more before, as Zouaves dressed in the traditional red pantaloons et blue jackets de l’armée coloniale française clashed avec des expatriés italiens in their plumed hats. Une milice nordiste even portait le kilt.

Although regular troops on both sides were expected to conform to basic dress regulations, manpower soon outstripped supplies, especially cloth et dye, avec the result that "Union blue" could vary from a dark sand color to nearly black.

The Civil War also saw the introduction of many support units, each of which demanded its own distinctive uniform et insignia. In some instances officiers on both sides adopted personalized uniforms which ten years earlier would have been regarded as outlandish.

This unique book provides a fascinating panorama of the uniforms et the hommes on both sides of this great conflict. The specially commissioned illustrations et authoritative text combine to make this an invaluable reference to this turbulent period in American history.
