I bought this book a few years ago, and i would buy it today. the color plates are wonderful to look at, and the units depicted are varied. The only drawback is the lack of campaign uniforms in the latter half of the book.

Format: Kindle Edition
Yes, this is a very colorful and informative book for US Army uniforms from the Mexican-American War on. It was, however, based on a series of color plates released by the War Department in the late 19th century, before the concept of modern research. The plates for the War of 1812 are inaccurate and don't even follow the Army's uniform regulations published in 1812 and 1813. Certainly the French style shako with eagle plate is completely wrong, US infantry prior to 1813 wearing a similar shako, but with different cords and no plate. From 1813 to 1819, the infantry wore the "tombstone" shake, similar to the Portuguese shako of 1809, with a large and then small plate. As far as the War of Independence, the errors there are from the lack of study into the actual clothing issued and those regulations that were published such as those of 1778. Very few American regiments had lace or tape around their button holes. And the "Tarleton" helmet was probably quite rare even into 1783. The best study of the uniforms of the US armed forces was done by Rene Chartrand, and for the War of Independence, start with Leffert's seminal book and go to the Osprey series for further illustrated history.

The book is short on text but if a picture is worth a 1000 words, this one is a virtual encyclopedia of Amry uniform and equipment history. Excellen quality paper and printing. A great reference source.
