Illustrated Encyclopedia of Uniforms of the American War of Independence Hardback
The uniforms of the fighting men of the American War of Independence are a vivid illustration of the difficulties and complexities of the conflict, and this book brings together for the first time a sweeping survey of what they should have worn, what they really wore, how they were armed, and what they carried with them.
As well as illustrations of the soldiers, equipment and kit - with over 450 in total and an unrivalled level of detail in the depiction of the uniforms - the campaigns and battles are explained with specially commissioned maps and plans, and plates and fine-art paintings of the period.
