This second volume in a four volume series telling the story of military uniforms worn by the combatants in the different wars in North America is simply superb. It covers a period that is not popular, the War of 1812 and the Mexican War, but it is a period that is full of high deeds, great campaigns, good soldiers, that ranged, in relatively small numbers compared to current warfare in Europe, across broad expanses of territory that was rough, unexplored, and sparsely settled, that would dwarf the distances traveled in Europe.

This second volume in a four volume series telling the story of military uniforms worn by the combatants in the different wars in North America is simply superb. It covers a period that is not popular, the War of 1812 and the Mexican War, but it is a period that is full of high deeds, great campaigns, good soldiers, that ranged, in relatively small numbers compared to current warfare in Europe, across broad expanses of territory that was rough, unexplored, and sparsely settled, that would dwarf the distances traveled in Europe.
Thirty-nine plates of the sixty-four in the book cover the War of 1812 and the period immediately preceding it. To me, this was the most interesting as it is the Napoleonic period which is my favorite. I have had a new interest in the War of 1812 after reading books on it by John Elting, Donald Graves, and Henry Adams. The uniforms are rich, handsome, and not generally thought of as American.
Some of the best military artists and historians contributed to this volume, including John Elting, Herbert Knotel, Eugene Leliepvre, Fairfax Downey, H. Charles McBarron, Frederick P. Todd, and Harry C. Larter. Unfortunately, most of these gallant gentlemen are no longer with us, and they are a breed of historian we shall never see again.
I have owned the other three volumes in this series for years. I just found this one and bought it, in excellent condition with the dust cover intact and in good shape, from a second hand bookshop. It is not only highly recommended, but it is a necessary addition to any and all who are interested in this era, and in American military history in general.
