Product Description

Review

...beautifull illustrated and the eight color plates show off a variety of WWI uniforms/equipment that are appropriate for armies that fought in the RCW...fills a very necessary spot in my wargaming library... As always, Osprey books form the first line of any 'attack' on a new period of study! "HMG Reviewing Stand""

This is a great book on a very neglected aspect of the Great War. Ian Sumner has made an outstanding contribution to the Anglophone history of the French Army 1914 - 1918, and this venerable member of the Osprey series has impeccable scholarly credentials.

However, the strengths of the book are in its representation of the minutiae of uniform and organisation. These are connected to a fine selection of plates. However, for a more detailed account of the French Army's operations, and evocative first hand accounts, the author's excellent book They Shall Not Pass is recommended.

I was trying to visualise what the French army looked like during WW I. This book helped me with detailed information, right down to the structure of the Fr. army, the evolution of the 'horizon blue' uniform, the insignia on different helmets and sleeves. Helped with my research.
