I'm no military expert but have always been fascinated by uniforms - especially ones from the early 20th century period/era.
This book was something I've been waiting and looking for, for a long, long time. Excellent colour plates along with relevant photographs and text, made this purchase one of my best buys of the year. Delighted that I was finally able to buy a copy, after a few "false starts" with the publication date etc...

My intention in purchasing this book was to have a reference source for making scale model figures; it has been a sound investment. The illustrations are excellent and the narrative; although brief, provides the appropriate background to what is essential a comprehensive guide to the variety of military uniforms worn during the First World War. Value for money is very good, you would have to buy a series of comparable books to gain the same amount of information. Thoroughly recommended, especially to fellow model makers.

Format: Hardcover
Don't get me wrong, I love an illustrated book. Osprey have been doing an excellent job in this department for years, and I was happy to see a title that covered most of the protagonists during the Great War. But what makes this title stand out from the Osprey titles, or even the beautiful Blandford colour series of the late 1970's, is the standard of illustrations. Here the publishers have employed a number of illustrators, some of whom are more skilled than others. Whereas as book illustrated, say, by Mike Chappell, would be a joy to own, here the inconsistency of the style employed by some of the illustrators lets the book down badly. For example, some of the pictures used In the British part seem to suggest that the illustrator has used a modern model, and fitted the uniforms to them using a graphics package. This means that the perspective is often wrong, the fit looks odd, and the shape of some kit looks strange. Colours also look a bit weird in places. Other artists in the book have used more traditional means of illustration, which gives a much better feel, and their work has been let down by others. Here and there the text is a bit wonky, but this can be forgiven. Future books in the series need to look carefully at the overall standard and consistency. Needless to say, maybe I was expecting too much from this book.

Format: Hardcover
I suspect the link material and maps must come from Jeremy Black, who earns the stars. I'd give the illustrations 1 or 1 1/2 stars. The colours are drab, the rank badges are given for British and French forces only, so far as I can see, and the descriptions of ranks other than General Staff are sparse. The German section is the least weak of the book, giving useful information on the various kingdoms (Bavaria, etc) in the Reich. Overall, not worth buying at full price. OK if at a big discount. Disappointing and a missed opportunity.

This is an excellent referenc book to anyone interested in World War 1 uniforms. The illustrations are excellent throughout covering a wide range of countries involved in the conflict and covering some obscure uniforms and regiments. I could not believe that a book with such fantastic coverage could be available at this price. Fantastic value
