This is a lovely book that will appeal to the heart as well as the mind. --Miniature Wargames
I thoroughly recommend this book without reservation if you are interested in uniforms; even if you are not it is a splendid thing to look at - and it helps the Ogilby Trust --The Society of Friends of the National Army Museum
About the Author
Archibald Ernest Haswell Miller was a Scottish soldier, painter and historian. He studied at the Glasgow School of Art between 1906 and 1909, becoming a probationary Professor and traveling to study in Paris, Vienna, Munich and Berlin. It was during these travels that he painted the majority of the figures in this book. He served with the 7th (Blytheswood) Battalion of the Highland Light Infantry in Gallipoli, Palestine and France, during which service he was awarded the Military Cross, attained the rank of Captain, and continued to sketch and paint as opportunities arose. He became a prolific painter of military portraits and his work was exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy and elsewhere.
For the last 25 years of his life Haswell Miller was an advisor to the Army Museums Ogilby Trust. He died in 1979 aged 92
