Uniforms & Accoutrements of the Imperial German Hussars 1880-1910 - An Illustrated Guide to the Military Fashion of the Kaiser's Cavalry : Guard, Death Head 1st and 2nd and line 3rd through 9th regiments

Description

During the thirty years prior to World War I, the Kaiser's Imperial Germany provided some of the finest examples of military fashion ever seen. The light cavalry, or Hussars, on parade were among the most elaborate and colorful regiments in military history. It was a time of regimental loyalty, honor and distinction. This two volume set provides a lavishly illustrated reference - with over 600 color and black and white photos - of Hussar busbies, tunics, trousers, horse accessories, steins, and swords of the twenty hussar regiments. These volumes are an excellent full-color photo reference to an era of military fashion long gone. This first volume covers the Guard, Death Head 1st and 2nd and line 3rd through 9th regiments. Chapters provide in-depth research on the head-gear, tunics, trousers, and musician uniforms, and includes a rare set of watercolors illustrating the regimental parade horse bridles. Additional chapters are devoted to each individual regiment and contain extensive photos of the regiment's parade uniform, accessories, stein, and walkout uniform.
