4.0 out of 5 stars The French have invaded the Amazon 20 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
First off, let me convey that this is the first time I have purchased a book on military uniforms, so my review will be more of a brief description since Amazon has not posted any info on this book. All text written in this book, is written in French. This is wouldn't be too much of a problem if I understood french, and since the majority of the book is made of pictures, but Amazon "should" have posted info on this, and it would be nice to actually understand the descriptions. But let me remind you again, this book doesn't contain vast amounts of text in the first place. The illustrations are all well done as well. If I understood French, this book would most likly recieve 5 stars. But, because of the french text, and Amazon not posting info on this, the book becomes nothing more then a very nice picture book if you do not understand the french language.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good pictorial book not deserving of 5 stars 12 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book features some nice (not great) artwork on various bits of uniforms and accessories as worn by French troops from Fontenoy onwards to Waterloo. The artwork, which is illustrative as opposed to being artistic, is unfinished in places, various items are depicted and, would be more useful if the items were named in the illustrations.
Thus, there is no rigorous classifcation of uniform details, merely a random survey of various uniforms and troop types.
For the price, one can get more information elsewhere, and in English, too).
