Uniforms of the German Colonial Troops 1884-1918, Hardback Book

Uniforms of the German Colonial Troops 1884-1918 Hardback

Description

The Schutztruppen, the Expedition Korps, and III. See-Bataillon of the Imperial German Marines were the forces assigned to protect Germany's far-flung Colonial possessions in Africa and China.

Uniform students and modelers have found scant published references to the varied and unique uniforms of these forces.

This highly illustrated book fills that gap. Color illustrations by Germany's leading 19th and 20th century artists, black and white drawings taken from rare period books, plus over sixty unpublished quality photographs from the album of a III.

See-Bataillon Marine stationed at the great German Naval base at Tsingtau, China, cover in detail the unusual uniforms of the Kaiser's Colonial forces.

A must for the Imperial German bookself.
