Synopses & Reviews
A catastrophic and ruinous civil war raged across the fledgling United States between 1861 and 1865. The conflict pitted brother against brother, father against son and friend against friend. This book minutely examines the uniforms and equipment of the Confederacy, a patchwork of states, comprising of the southern aristocracy, farm hands and state militiamen. Often hopelessly outnumbered, they held back the inevitable tide of blue of the Union for four years. This book not only examines the uniforms, but also the equipment, weapons, battle flags, tactics and organization of the Confederate armies. Indispensable for military historians, collectors, wargamers and re-enactors.
