Opis produktu:

This stunning pictorial series presents the uniforms and equipment of the men and women of the United States Army in full detail

.
This book reflects the large amount of study that the Custer legend has generated. The book shows and names officers, tells about them, and gives expert notes on uniforms and other aspects. High quality content in an inexpensive small book.
Short on photos of enlisted men, no doubt because officers were far more likely to have their pictures taken and then have their families preserve them.

"Custer and His Commands" is part of the series "G/I.: The Illustrated History of the American Soldier, His Uniform and His Equipment". Fortunately, George Custer and his men (both during the Civil War and the Plains Indian Wars) lived during the era of photography, so Mr. Cox depends mostly upon photographs to illustrate his subject and does not have to resort to drawings or paintings. And this means we have the opportunity to see the faces of the soldiers who wore those uniforms, many of whom fought at-- and some of whom died at -- the Battle of the Little Big Horn (about two-thirds of the volume is devoted to Custer's post-Civil War career). Even as a longtime Little Big Horn student, a significant number of the photographs were new to me. This book helps to remind us that history is first and foremost about the people who went before us.
