This sweeping tour through America's military past provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of the soldier of the colonial wars, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War. Supporting nearly 200 photos of rare equipment and uniforms is text by two leading artifact experts that analyzes and evaluates the arms and accoutrements of the different periods, using firsthand accounts to describe military fashion in Europe and America. How regulations were decided upon - and how they often were ignored - is illustrated in narrative and correspondence.
Of course, this new book also features Troiani's meticulously crafted full-color scenes of grand action and great characters, including Bushy Run, George Washington, the Battle of Cowpens, Stonewall Jackson, Emmitsburg Road, and Hampton's Dues, as well as his famously detailed figures, from a Shawnee warrior to the Richmond Howitzers.

Don Troiani has done it again! Following his precursers such as Edouard Detaille, Don has executed another fine book. His artistic talents have been amalgated with the photos from his personal artifact collection and the writings of such master historians such as James L. Kochan. No book has ever came close to this one in artistry and historical accuracy. This book is must have for any student of history or art... get it if you haven't. --Olga Federkevich
