    Declan Waters

    A very detailed look at the uniforms of the British Army in Crimea. Only useful for those painting, drawing or explaining the era with lots of photos and the usual colour plates found in these Osprey books. Unfortunately an over-reliance on photos from the era made it difficult to understand all the descriptions and there is definitely an assumption that you understand all the military terminology for the clothing as minimal effort was made to explain.
