This review is from: German Armies, 1870-71: v. 2: Prussia's Allies (Men-At-Arms (Osprey)) (Paperback)
A word of warning, if you are looking for historical account of the german allies in the Franco-Prussian war, then you will not find much within this book. This is what it sets out to be, a detailed examination of the various uniforms of the infantry, cavalry, artillery and support services of the german states other than Prussia.
In this the detail is meticulous and will be of great use to modellers, military illustrators and wargamers who use figures in the 15mm, 25mm and upwards ranges.
There are the Osprey trademark excellent colour illustrations and some very good reproductions of contemporary prints; ironically these have snippets of historical details. There are also little `boxed off' paragraphs recording how the units were deployed within the Prussian war machine.
Yes a very good technical volume, but gee guys, just a few pages as to how these units performed would have been a useful addition.
Oh, well, never mind, still a very handy book to have if your interests are in this era
