by Pierre Turner,Michael Barthorp

The Army of 1882 had just emerged from the many modernizing reforms effected between 1856-81. These included: opening of schools of instruction; abolition of the purchase of commissions; improvements in pay, living conditions and disciplinary measures and new weapons and tactics. By these later years of the 19th century the British Army had become the policeman of a vast global Empire. This volume in the acclaimed British Army on Campaign mini-series details the uniforms, organisation and equipment used in a succession of campaigns across the face of the globe. Michael Barthorp's splendid text is accompanied by numerous illustrations including eight colour plates by Pierre Turner.

Love the illustrations, helps me out on painting figures.
These series of 4 booklets on the British Army on Campaign and what they wore is surprisingly overlooked for the amount of detailed and quite comprehensive documentation on this subject. With a lucid text by Michael Barthorp who writes well especially on the British Army during this period of Empire, and excellent paintings by Pierre Turner, these 4 booklets should be hunted down in second-hand bookstores.
