Review:

"There is something for everyone who collects and even those who don't. It may save you from buying something you shouldn't" - James Mayo, 2nd June 2016."This is going to be one of those books that just goes up in value over the years." - D Krausz, June 2nd, 2016."For years there was not that much available but this is now a golden age for this kind of subject it seems. We are lucky to have dedicated historians like this duo." - A Fonteyne, June 9th, 2016."Just have to say WOW! to Vol II, I just received from amazon. Thanks a lot for this book." - Sven Peters, June 10th, 2016."I just got all three today in the mail. Just flicking through them now. WOW! I reenact British line infantry 1860s in New Zealand wars and there is so much information and great photos of kit directly relevant to my group." -Bruce Cairns, June 17th, 2016.   

"I'm a civil war reenactor, portraying the CS Marine Corps in Germany. This unit was often equipped with imported British gear. As this is not to present in the actual collections and sutlers it's hard to tell if a reproduction is good, or how it should look (custom made). This book(s) are great resources for a quality research. The pictures of the originals and their details give you every information, from the British vendor, over some importers , use in the CS units, even the owners and details of the original item (like interior, material, stamps/marks, ....). After reading Vol I & II you will know a good reproduction from the needed details. There are also information what should be with the item (like oil bottle with the ball pouch, or the different stuff for the Enfield muskets & rifles) also pictured as originals.
This should be in the basic research biblio of every reenactor. Can't wait for Vol III."

- Sven Peters, Germany, June 17th, 2016.

"Suppliers to the Confederacy Volume II is the result of extensive research into the needs, why, and how the Confederacy survived for four years against overwhelming odds. It delves not only in to what was obtained from Britain for war needs but behind the scenes details in transactions and who was involved. Documentation, item description, and photographs were acquired from resources in both Britain and the United States. When one reads this book it is clearly understood it was not written hastily. This is the work of many years of research. This book will make an excellent reference for War Between the States researchers, collectors, historians, and re-enactors. This is the third book in the Suppliers to the Confederacy Series and is a continuing project. This series is an indispensable resource about the lifeline of the Confederacy and the collection should be a part of your library."  -Mr Arthur Quick Jr, June 28, 2016.

"Volume II is packed with high resolution color photographs of the many items listed above. The well documented text is also very detail oriented. I would imagine that many different readerships (serious collectors, museum specialists, archaeologists, and more) would be very interested in the pair of volumes." - Civil War Books and Authors - July 5th, 2016.

"Suppliers to the Confederacy Volume II is a deeply impressive and authoritative reference tool. Museum specialists, private collectors, auction houses, and those working in the related fields of battlefield archaeology and anthropology will all want to add this volume to their research libraries." - Civil War Books and Authors Review, September, 2016.

"The new chapters follow the same format as those in the previous work, making it easy to understand the new material. They further enhance readers' ability to understand the logistical challenges the Confederacy faced in attempting to negotiate with the European firms. The book is exceptionally well priced. It continues to be a wonderful reference tool for those interested in Quartermaster functions, general mercantile operations and foreign support of the American Civil War. It receives my strongest recommendation." - Richard Blumberg, Civil War News, September, 2016.

Suppliers to the Confederacy - British Imported Arms and Accoutrements, Craig L. Barry & David C. Burt.

"Fascinating insight into the arms and accoutrements purchased by the Confederate states from British contractors. Some of it WD issue and some of it not quite up to standard. Great photos of original kit (not just one photo of an item, but multiple photos from all angles) and in-depth chapters on the Birmingham gun makers, as well as LA Co, which supplied them (and the US) with a huge number of arms.

Also got Suppliers to the Confederacy - British Imported Arms and Accoutrements II - More... and Suppliers to the Confederacy II: S Isaac Campbell & Co., London, Peter Tait & Co., Limerick."
- A Reader, 18th October, 2016.

MILITARY TRADER MAGAZINE REVIEW Suppliers to the Confederacy Volume II: More British Imported Arms and Accoutrements, by Craig L. Barry and David C. Burt (ISBN 978-0764350764, Schiffer Publishing, 4880 Lower Valley Road, Atglen, PA 19310; 610-593-1777; schifferbooks.com. Hardcover, 6.4" x 9.2", 304 pages, 347 color and black-and-white images, 2016, $39.99)
...
For the past 20 years, Craig L. Barry and David C. Burt have studied British companies aided the Confederate states during the American Civil War. Separately, they started to research the various firms involved, the arms, equipage, and uniforms supplied by these companies. David published his first book, Major Caleb Huse C.S.A. & S Isaac Campbell & Co in March 2009. After the publication of this book, David and Craig, author of The Civil War Musket: A Handbook for Historical Accuracy - Lock, Stock and Barrel and Editor of the Watchdog magazine, got together to write their first joint title: The Civil War Musket: J.E. Barnett & Sons.
The pair then wrote the first in the Supplier series: Supplier to the Confederacy; S, Isaac Campbell & Co, London, a major reworking of David's original book, with Supplier to the Confederacy: Peter Tait & Co Limerick being the third book the pair have co-written together and the second in the Supplier series.
In November 2011, David and Craig achieved a major breakthrough when they signed with Schiffer Books of Atglen, Pennsylvania, to publish their third book in the "Supplier" Series entitled "Suppliers to the Confederacy: British Imported Arms and Accoutrements. The title explores all the major gun makers from London and Birmingham, as well as details of all the accoutrements that were sent to the Confederacy alongside the famed P1853 Enfield rifle musket.
Now, Suppliers to the Confederacy Volume II continues the extensive research into the needs, why, and how the Confederacy survived for four years against overwhelming odds. It delves in to what was obtained from Britain for war needs as well as the behind-the-scenes details in transactions and who was involved. Documentation, item description, and photographs were acquired from resources in both Britain and the United States.
This series is an indispensable resource about the lifeline of the Confederacy and the collection should be including in any Civil War collector's library. A word of warning, however: The subject and depth of research will enticed you to read this book, but the print is small as are the photos. Regardless, this is a major contribution to the field of Civil War collecting. Put on your reading glasses and settle back to enjoy the sharp learning curve! - JAG
