Text: English, German (translation)From Library Journal:
This is the first popular history of the Western world's horse cavalry to appear in several years. The authors unaccountably begin their account in the 17th century and bring it through 1939. The text discusses cavalry tactics and organization and gives examples of its use in various wars. The coverage, however, is uneven and often sketchy. The best part is the numerous color paintings of specific uniforms, impeccably detailed. The book is attractive, but contains insufficient data to make it suitable as a reference work. John Ellis's Cavalry: The History of Mounted Warfare (LJ 12/15/78) remains preferable.
