Customer Reviews

An excellent book, one of Schiffer's fine range of volumes examining the uniforms and equipment of the fighting men of the Great War. Sumptuously illustrated with period photographs, this is a must for the bookshelf of any serious student of the dress and accoutrements of the British Army.
