4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 July 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very useful volume mixing the art of Don Troiani with helpful photographs of historical items still in existence. Battle and uniform portraits can easily suffer from the "full dress and clean" treatment that disguises the difficulties of campaign living in the open air. This is especially so in this war where both sides had considerable supply problems and had to make and match; and both exhibited the healthy refusal to conform. To this end I found the "purple" uniform of Lee's Legion most educational. Troiani's work is, as ever, beautifully executed and is enhanced by sitting alongside the artifacts of the actual soldiers.

Troiani breathes life into te American Revolution 26 Jan. 2007
By John Henry Kurtz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A previous reviewer seemed obsessed with the fact that some of the art in this book has appeared in other Troiani venues. I say that too much fine art and scholarship is never enough! Once again Troiani has proven himself to be the premier Military artist and scholar of the past thirty years. His skill as a painter is only surpassed by his remarkable knowledge of his subject. Not since Detaille worked in France in the late Ninteenth century has an historical artist been so meticulous in his renditions.Detaille was also a master collector and his artifacts, uniforms, weapons, and equipment are thr bedrock of France's "Museum of the Army to this day". Troiani's use of relics from his world renowned collection to support his research is a joy to art buff,collector,and historian alike.We live in an era where many self-styled "Military Artists" merely photograph re-enactors or living history participants and transcribe the photos to canvas,not really bothering to research the authenticity of their subjects.Troiani's book will inspire novice collectors,art buffs and scholars for decades to come.

More Magic From Don Troiani 26 Jan. 2007
By Bruce B. Herman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is probably the best book ever done on Revolutionary War uniforms and equipment! Dombrowski's comments are ridiculous, the majority of paintings have NOT been in earlier Troiani books. So an artist's paintings are only to be viewed once and never seen again? Spending time actually counting which of the artworks he may have seen elsewhere strikes me as a bit odd. The introduction clearly states that this book was meant to be an expansion of the Revolutionary chapter of "Soldiers in America." This was not meant to be an "art" book, but a volume that shows the uniforms, soldiers, insignia and equipment of the Revolution. That is the point and it does it superbly! Too many magnificent RARE artifacts, how could that possibly be a negative? as a full time Military Antiques dealer, and an appraiser who has spent the last eight seasons as a military antiques expert on the PBS "Antiques Roadshow" I can tell you that military artifacts from this time period are almost nonexistent, and it is a pleasure to see so many of these wonderful and RARE items pictured in one book! I found this to be a terrific reference book which puts forth much new information (check out the Washington's Life Guard figure-guess the US Army Old Guard uniforms will need some revising!) and super color relic pictures, the bulk of which have NOT been in the other books. Dig that Redcoat dog collar!

By K. O'Hern - Published on
Format: Hardcover
With nearly two and one-half centuries having passed and literally thousands of books on the topic having appeared since the events of the American Revolutionary War, calling a new volume "pioneering" seems a bit bold. Relative to this important and exciting new gift to students by master artist and collector Don Troiani, though, that term is fully appropriate. In literally no other book to date have such historically valid visual perspectives of our War for Independence been gathered, through both a remarkable array of original artifacts and Troiani's impeccably researched and executed artwork. For this pre-photography American military epoch, no other source yields such a "you are there" perspective

While the bookshelf of "material culture" albums relating to Civil War memorabilia is both broad and expanding nearly every year, the number of significant books on Revolutionary War artifacts and relics ever published can literally be counted on one's fingers, with most of the still best-selling volumes having appeared during the bicentennial years of the 1970s. That sharp contrast, of course, is a direct reflection of the exceptionally greater rarity of the arms, equipment, apparel, and everyday-life items that can be proven to have been used by the armies of the 1770s than is the case with the militaria of the 1860s. Troiani has done all Revolutionary War students a great service by expanding the presentation of such earlier artifacts beyond those from his own fine collection with a startlingly superb array of items from other private and institutional collections, most never before published and many rarely ever seen by the public. These historic jewels are brought to the reader through close-up, full-color photos of such striking detail and beauty as to almost produce the experience of having these fascinating artifacts in one's hands.

The element that weaves together and breathes life throughout this gallery of fine militaria, of course, is Troiani's peerless artwork. With more than 50 of his paintings beautifully reproduced in this volume, the artist has brought true vibrancy to an era and its people almost habitually misperceived as lifelessly archaic or, worse yet, patriotically "quaint." In particular, the single-figure and small-group studies clearly reflect the precise documentation yielded by author James L. Kochan's exacting material culture scholarship. Such world-class historical accuracy, together with artist Troiani's insistence upon "period-correct" faces and physiques, has produced for us a strikingly innovative window upon the Revolution.

Fantastic new book! 26 Jan. 2007
By J. Bohy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Troiani and the others have done a fantastic job on this new book. It has been very hard over the years to find anything with updated information on uniforms and equipage of this time period and I was very pleased when it arrived. The artwork, along with the original items and informative text make this a very well rounded book. My only gripe is that I wish there was even more! Maybe there will be another volume sometime.

A groundbreaking glimpse of America's Revolutionary heritage 30 Jan. 2007
By Henry Cooke - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Not since George Neumann's landmark "Collector's Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution" has there been such a remarkable assemblage of artifacts and images. The former, drawn from public and private collections from across the nation include many items that have never been published, let alone in color. Don Troiani's exquisitely detailed images, some new, some drawn from previous works, provide invaluable context for the objects, as well as documenting the bewildering variety of uniforms worn during the war. Both artifacts and images are described within the impeccably thorough research of noted historian James Kochan. This volume is destined to be the standard reference for the student of the American Revolution that "Echoes of Glory" is to devotees of the Civil War, and is a must for anyone from historian to general reader who is fascinated by the drama of the war that gave birth to America.
