This book (and the other in the series in infantry) shows a large number of illustrations of the uniforms of the American Civil War. The illustrations tend to be the same view (face on) of a figure with, in turn, the different uniforms; though views of equipment and saddlery are also given.
The product is up to the high standard of all Histoire & Collections books. The aim of the books is not to portray the soldiery in the dramatic poses of Don Troiani but rather to act as a "pattern book" for the different styles.
The one weakness is that there is no text to accompany the illustrations, some of which are wonderfully odd. There is a basic text on the war and how it was fought.
