1870/71 IN COLOUR Uniforms and Equipment – personal experiences of German soldiers during the Franco-Prussian War

£75.00

This title is based on numerous personal accounts, notes and anecdotes about the appearance of the German troops in 1870/71 gathered by the author Markus Stein. They were witnessed firsthand and experienced by the soldiers who marched or sat, sodden, in their saddles for days on end. These lively accounts are complemented by 31 black-and-white photographs that have been coloured by Luc Heinrich, bringing to life the soldiers of the war of 1870/71. The photographs have been selected to present as wide a range as possible of the troops involved.
