Format: Hardcover
A couple of respected colleagues of mine bought this book at the 29th Annual Chicago Toy Soldier Show and told me "you gotta have this book." They were right! Hutchison's photography is outstanding. The narrative is not the run of the mill sort, it's interesting and detailed. I was most impressed with the way the book brings a certain humanity to the photographed artifacts. The historical summary by Colin Robins is accurate and eloquent. One of the great aspects of the book is the collections that have never been photographed or even seen by the general public. Schiffer Publishing put the book out, so the high quality is a given. Although this is a "must have" book for military historians, collectors and artists, I believe anyone that picks it up will enjoy and appreciate the photography of the artifacts, and stories about the men that used those artifacts. I have been collecting for 28 years and have a ton of reference books, this one is now my favorite for my Brit projects. I highly recommend it. I also checked out Hutchison's other books, you might want to take a look at Follow Me To Glory and The Gettysburg Conspiracy.

Format: Hardcover
The collaborative work of Will Hutchison, Michael Vice, and B.J. Small, "Crimean Memories: Artifacts Of The Crimean War" is a deftly assembled and superbly presented 272-page compendium of color photographs showcasing the uniforms, camp equipment, weaponry, accouterments, and miscellany of the British military engaged in the battlefields of the Crimean War. The informed and informative accompanying text provides context along with notating the history and origins of the items referenced and illustrated. Of special note is that several angles are offered providing an unusual visual depth for highlighted items, making "Crimean Memories" an impressive and reliable reference resource of military scholarship and novelists seeking historical accuracy for stories set with the context of the Crimean War. A work of impeccable scholarship, "Crimean Memories" is a seminal work of impressive merit and very strongly commended for both academic and community library Military History reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

Crimean Memories takes you back in time to places not often reached. The magnificent color photography of the artifacts will stand by itself, but this book is far more than its consummate photographic art. It is packed full of poignant stories about these artifacts and the soldiers who used them. I was amazed - even at times dazzled by the splendor and clarity of the photographs, and moved by the stories behind the artifacts. My compliments to Will Hutchison on his photography and writing, and to his co-authors who produced this singularly attractive, yet studiously written academic work.

This has to be the closest thing to visiting a museum of Crimean War artifacts (if such a thing even existed). The photographs are amazing and the commentary is succinct and brings each item to life. This is a true collectors items of the highest quality and design.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Enjoyable book, well written and photographed. I'm primarily a button collector, esp. of Crimean War buttons, so was disappointed to not see any pages devoted to them. You've got to squint pretty hard to make some of them out in the shots and with so many British regiments having distinctive buttons, unlike many other wars, I'd like to have seen that. The introduction clearly states that they had to leave certain aspects of collectibles out, buttons included. That in mind, the authors then do exactly what they hoped to accomplish- the best photo essay of Crimean War uniforms ever done. It was a monumental tasking for Will and all to accomplish what they did and the text about the war in general is well done and a great summary for those not knowing much about this war other than the famous charge of the Light Bde. I'd love to see one of these days a follow-on to it covering all of the different bullets used during the war, the buttons, and other smaller items; but unless they do it, can't see anyone else undertaking it; too bad for me! Look forward to reading Will's two novels, one about the Crimean War and the other about the American Civil War. It warms the heart to see Will and all clearly so passionate about the Crimean War, seldom studied by Americans but one that did impact how we fought our own Civil War (few lessons from one carried over to the other).
