An Annotated Bibliography of Books on Napoleonic Period Uniforms

By Robert Mosher

The recent discussion of uniform sources inspired me to produce the attached annotated bibliography. I did not include any Osprey titles, their publicity department seems efficient enoughnot to need any assistance. If you have other books that you wish to add to this bibliography, please contact me.

 General Napoleonic Uniform Collections

Elting, J.R., Ed. Military Uniforms in America:  Years of Growth, 1796-1851.  San Rafael: Presidio Press; 1977. 

Produced by the Company of Military Historians, this volume covers both the undeclared war with France and the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain.  Features 32 full color 8½ by 11 inch plates, mostly of American uniforms but including one plate  3 figures  of French and seven plates featuring British uniforms.  The illustrations are the work of a number of artists.

Funcken, Fred and Liliane.  Le Costume et les armes des soldats de tous les temps: 2. de Frédéric II à nos jours.  Tournai: Casterman; 1967.

One of the library of works from the Funckens, this includes nine pages of color plates  multiple figures  representing all the major combatant nations.  Artwork is in the standard Funcken illustration style.  The accompanying text provides a sketch military history of the period.

Funcken, Fred and Liliane Funcken. L’Uniforme et les Armes des Soldats du Premier Empire: I des régiments de ligne français aux troupes britanniques, prussiens, et espagnoles. Tournai: Casterman; 1968.

Funcken, Fred and Liliane Funcken. L'Uniforme et Les Armes des Soldats du Premier Empire, 2: de la garde impériale aux troupes alliées, suédoises, autrichiennes et russes. Tournai: Casterman; 1979.

A two-volume work from the Funcken library dealing specifically with the Napoleonic wars and all the major combatants.  The many illustrations are the standard Funcken work, featuring multiple figures.  The accompanying text provides both a military history as well as additional information regarding facing colors and other uniform details for all the regiments both depicted in the illustrations and those not depicted. 

Haswell Miller, A E and N P Dawnay. Military Drawings and Paintings in the Collection of Her Majesty the Queen. New York:  Phaidon; 1969.

Catalogue of the artwork on military themes and portraits featuring soldiers found in Queen Elizabeth’s private collection at the time the catalogue was compiled.  This was published in two versions – one in two volumes, one of text and the other of plates – and the second combining both volumes in one binding.  This is the second.  Either version are difficult to find and likely to be expensive.  Includes both black and white reproductions as well as full-page color plates.  Most of the states participating in the Napoleonic wars are represented and among the artists represented are Détaille, Denis and Robert Dighton, von Kobell, and Vernet.

 

Haythornthwaite, Philip J, John Fabb, and Jack Cassin-Scott, illustrator. Uniforms of the Napoleonic Wars in Color 1796-1814. New York:  Hippocrene; 1973.

One of the Blandford series of uniform books, this is one is wholly devoted to the period, as specified in the title.  Its 80 color plates all depicting multiple figures  include uniforms from all of the major and most of the minor powers.  The notes accompanying each plate provide additional details about the army the unit was a part of and sources of information for each illustration are provided.  An order of battle for the 1812 Grande Armee is also included.

Haythornthwaite, Philip J and Jack Cassin-Scott and Mike Chappell, illustrators.   Uniforms of Waterloo in color 16-18 June 1815. New York: Hippocrene Books; 1974.

Haythornwaite is again teamed with Cassin-Scott, now aided by Mike Chappell, in another Blandford Press uniform book.  Although they don’t indicate which artist did which of the 80 plates, I think the styles can be distinguished by those familiar with the work of the two illustrators.  Again the plates all depict multiple figures representing all of the participating armies.  In addition to the notes on each plate, there is an account of the battle, an order of battle, black and white line drawings of some of the regimental standards, and a list of references.

Haythornthwaite, Philip J and Michael Chappel, illustrator.  World Uniforms and Battles in colour 1815-50.  Poole: Blandford Press; 1976

This time Haythornwaite and Chappell team up on a Blandford Press book.  This one covers world uniforms beginning with five plates for the year 1815 and ends with the 1848 revolution.  Interspersed amidst the notes on the color plates are short sections describing the conflicts in which the uniforms where worn.  Though not relevant to the Napoleonic period are five black and white drawings of uniforms and details from later periods.  The work also includes a bibliography of sources and references.

Kannik, Preben.  Military Uniforms of the World In Color.  New York:  MacMillan: 1974.

An interesting collection that presents 512 color plates of uniforms ranging from the 1506 Swiss Guards from the Vatican to a Captain of Thailand’s Royal Palace Guard from 1965.  Each illustration is accompanied by a paragraph long commentary providing additional information on the uniform and unit depicted.  For our period there are 131 uniforms for participating powers in the Russo-Swedish War, the French Revolution, the Campaign in Egypt, the Napoleonic Wars  including the War of 1812 , and the Latin American wars of independence.  Those who have made a prolonged study of other works illustrating uniforms of the period – both art and reference books – may well recognize that they inspired many of Kannik’s figures.  Also included is a glossary of relevant terminology.

Kipling, Arthur, and Lt. Col. Frank Wilson, illustrator (1972).  Uniforms of the Peninsular War.  London, Charles Knight & Co. Ltd.

One of the series of books published by Charles Knight in the United Kingdom and eventually in the United States, as well, in cooperation with Hippocrene Books.  Published in the glossy hardcover format (8 ½ by 5 ½ inches) also found on the series Knight’s Battles for Wargamers, this appears to be one of only two books on uniforms published in this format  (the other is on Marlborough’s period).  Arthur Kipling’s text is relatively brief and primarily intended to guide the reader through Colonel Wilson’s illustrations, rather than to provide a mass of additional details.  The book’s 47 pages offer eight color plates and 40 black and white line drawings, which together are the real meat of this publication.  The color plates all feature multiple figures both mounted and on foot (as appropriate) but focus primarily upon the uniforms of what might be called the mainstream units rather than the rare and obscure.  The line drawings include depictions of additional figures as well as illustrating details of arms and equipment such as the horse furniture of a British hussar, French artillery pieces, and the weapons carried by the soldiers of the major forces.

Knötel, Herbert, Jr and Herbert Sieg.  Uniforms of the World: A Compendium of Army, Navy, and Air Force Uniforms, 1700-1937.  London:  Arms and Armour Press; 1980.

This is an English language edition based upon the 1896 German work, revised and enlarged in 1947 and republished by Arms and Armour Press. It presents histories of the uniforms under 39 country headings  with one for Russia and one for the USSR, and the various German states are found under the heading for Germany , accompanied by 1,600 black and white line drawings.  The accompanying text provides the account of how and when the uniforms changed and additional details including some history and orders of battle of the respective armies.

Martin, Paul. European Military Uniforms, A Short History.  London:  Spring Books; 1967.

Paul Martin’s book is exactly what the title indicates, a history of how military uniforms evolved in Europe over more 400 years, roughly 1400 to 1870.  In telling this story he draws upon 44 pages of color plates reproducing original paintings and art works that showed military uniforms, as well as black and white line drawings that illustrate specific parts of the story.  The notes describing each color plate also describe the source of each illustration and the artist.

North, Rene and John Berry, illustrator.  Military Uniforms, 1686-1918.  New York: Grosset and Dunlap; 1970.

Although Rene North’s name appears on this work as the author, also credited are a Supervising editor, seven consultants, and six identified experts who assisted him – as well as the illustrator John Berry.  If this information brings to mind the image of a committee, you would not be far mislead.  While the text combines both military history of the relevant period and details about the evolution of the uniforms and their manufacturing – the illustrations are a bit of a letdown.  Also provided are a list of relevant museums with uniform collections, some books of interest for further reading, and a brief glossary.  This book was apparently aimed at a young audience, but it has since been overtaken by newer works.

Nafziger, George F and Mike Gilbert, illustrator.  The Bavarian and Westphalian Armies 1799-1815.  Cambridge: RAFM; 1981.

This is a small  66 page  paper covered booklet published by the RAFM Co. for war gamers.  It includes five multi-figure black and white line drawings by Mike Gilbert to illustrate various uniforms as well as a page of drawings illustrating various uniform details.  The text provides relevant war and campaign history; details on the two countries’ armies, their organization, and their structure; and descriptions of the uniforms.  George also identifies both his original primary sources as well as a list of secondary sources.   

Nafziger, George F and Mike Gilbert, illustrator.  The Armies of Brunswick, Hanover, Hesse-Cassel, and the Hanseatic Cities.  West Chester: Nafziger Publications; 1990.

Another product of the Nafziger-Gilbert partnership, but this time privately published in a soft-cover 8 ½ by 11-inch format.  Gilbert provides 11 full-page, multi-figure black and white line drawings of different uniforms.  The text offers information on organization, structure, tactics, and uniform details.  A bibliography identifies the numerous primary and secondary sources in German and English.

Pericoli, Ugo.  1815 The Armies at Waterloo.  London: Sphere Books; 1973.

Ugo Pericoli was the Costume Designer for the film “Waterloo” and in collaboration with Michael Glover produced this book based upon the research he conducted in preparation for his film work.  It features 145 color illustrations by Pericoli that range from full page single figure drawings to half page color drawings of various uniform details.  Further details are provided in the notes accompanying each illustration.  The accompanying text chapters provide a history of the campaign and battle, orders of battle for the three armies, and discussions of tactics, etc. of the period.  The notes for the color plates are further supported by numerous black and white line drawings of additional uniform details and items of equipment.  Long out of print it is still reportedly available on the used book market.

Shevyakov, Timofei Nikolayevich and I A Dzis.  Ital'yanskii i Shveitsarskii Pokhodi Suvorova, 1799.  Moskva: AST; 2002.

This is a hard cover, Osprey-type publication, and part of a series of such Russian-language books on military-history themes offered by AST.  Eight full-color, full-page, multi-figure illustrations depict uniforms worn by the French, Russian, and Austrian forces participating in this campaign.  The accompanying text recounts the history of the campaign, provides orders of battle, and information about the armies and the commanders.  There is also a bibliography included.

Thompson, F Glenn.  The Uniforms of 1798-1803.  Dublin: Four Courts Press; 1998.

A rather unique booklet focused upon the rising in Ireland in 1798 and the attempted rising of 1803.  The 26 full color plates depict British regulars, militiamen, fencibles, and yeomen; Irish insurgents; the various French contingents; and the Hompesch Mounted Rifles, as well as flags carried by all of these.  Additional information is provided on additional formations that took part in the conflict but which are not illustrated.  A bibliography is included.

Todd, Frederick P and Fritz Kredel, illustrator.   Soldiers of the American Army 1775-1954.  Chicago: Henry Regnery 1954.

This is a collection of 32 full-page color plates, most with multiple figures, depicting American uniforms from 1775 to 1954.  Two of these fit within the subject era covering American uniforms from 1811 and 1814.  This was the first of a projected series of uniform books reportedly inspired by similar efforts and contributions from the Company of Military Collectors and Historians and the American Military Institute.  Two proposed further titles for the projected series were Uniforms of the American Navy and Marine Corps and Uniforms of the World, but at present I have no further information on these.

Windrow, Martin and Gerry Embleton.  Military Dress of the Peninsular War, 1808-1814.  New York:  Hippocrene Books; 1974.

With an exclusive focus upon the fighting on the Iberian Peninsula, the collaborators present us with 100 uniforms in 20 multiple figure plates – and these represent the uniforms they way they were worn in the field and not how they were supposed to look when issued.  These are supported by a large collection of black and white drawings and photographs of additional uniforms, uniform bits and pieces, museum mannequins, and other artworks all supporting their goal of describing how the soldiers of this conflict really looked.  The accompanying text recounts the history of the fighting, in turn supported by sketch maps of the campaigns and battles, army rosters with uniform details for the Kingdoms of Spain and Portugal, the French army order of battle for 1808, a list of British infantry units  again with uniform details  that served in the Peninsula, and lists of major units engaged at various battles from the Peninsular War.  The authors also present a bibliography of sources.

Yaple, R L and John Steinle, illustrator.  The Regiments and Uniforms of the British, Portuguese, Spanish, Brunswick, and Netherlandish Armies, 1802-1815.  Dayton: Der Kriegspielers; 1975.

Aimed at war gamers, this work presented a lot of information regarding the armies and the uniforms of the named countries.  There are eight pages of black and white line drawings illustrating uniforms, headgear, colors, and equipment.  The accompanying text provides details on army rosters, lists of regiments, further details regarding the uniforms and their changes, and army organization.

British Uniforms

Bowling, A H.  British Hussar Regiments, 1805-1914.  London:  Almark; 1972.

A history of the British Army’s Hussar regiments from their introduction up to 1914 with details on their battle honors and the evolution of the regiment’s title.  Illustrations of the uniforms are presented in both color and black and white drawings and photographs.  The illustrations are presented as color and black and white single figure drawings as well as a row of figures seated in their saddles – allowing the artist to show saddle cloth details and the differences in uniform from regiment to regiment and/or over time, as appropriate.  Almark produced a small library of such references for the modeling community and A.H. Bowling was a significant contributor.

Bowling, A. H.  British Infantry Regiments 1660-1914.  Military Modeling; 1992.

Bowling, A. H.  Scottish Regiments 1660-1914.  Military Modeling; 1992.

These are both pamphlet-sized reprints of Bowling’s work that were collected and reprinted by Military Modeling magazine for inclusion as free gifts to readers in late 1992.  The illustrations are full-figure and in color, though somewhat reminiscent of cutout paper soldiers.  Each two plates show the changes in uniform for a particular regiment from the 18th to the late 19th Century or even 1914, as appropriate.

Carman, W.Y. British Military Uniforms From Contemporary Pictures, Henry VIII to the present day. New York:  Arco Publishing; 1957.

A collection of 109 plates, mostly black and white but a few in color, illustrating British military uniforms across history.  In the accompanying 150 plus pages of text, W.Y. Carman recounts the history of these uniforms, the changes made and when they were made, and often why, with additional descriptions to expand upon the illustrations.  This includes the list of regiments at the time of various Royal Warrants dictating the appearance of the army’s regiments, facing colors, etc., making this a good one-volume reference on the British Army.

Lawson, Cecil C. P.  A History of the Uniforms of the British Army, Volume I: from the Beginnings to 1760.  London:  Kaye and Ward; 1969. 

Lawson, Cecil C. P.  A History of the Uniforms of the British Army, Vol IV - 1760-1797.  London:  Kaye and Ward; 1970. 

Lawson, Cecil C. P.  A History of the Uniforms of the British Army, V-1760-1805.  London:  Kaye and Ward; 1970. 

Lawson, Cecil C. P.  A History of the Uniforms of the British Army, Vol II From the Beginnings to 1760.  London:  Kaye and Ward; 1971. 

Lawson, Cecil C. P.  A History of the Uniforms of the British Army: III-1760-1805.  London:  Kaye and Ward; 1974. 

These five volumes trace the history of British Army uniforms from the before the time of the New Model Army and the Stuart restoration to the Napoleonic period.  There are a few color plates and a very large number of black and white line drawings.  The volumes cover all elements of the British army; foreign volunteer regiments; the militia, yeomanry, fencibles and volunteer units and their uniforms, colors, and equipment.

North, Rene and Chris Warner, illustrator.  Regiments at Waterloo: British Army Uniforms.  London:  Almark; 1977.

Another Almark product aimed at the war gamer community, part of a series on the Battle of Waterloo.  Although the vast majority of uniform illustrations are black and white line drawings, there are four multi-figure color plates.  While the title states that the subject is British Army uniforms, the drawings and text also discuss the King’s German Legion, Brunswickers, Hanoverians, and Dutch-Belgian units.  Chris Warner’s drawings are clear and detailed.  The accompanying text provides details on the uniforms of the units illustrated as well as on other regiments not illustrated, as well as information about the unit’s service in the campaign.  Appended is an order of battle for the Anglo-Allied army and a short glossary of uniform terminology.

Pimlott, John and Emir Bukhari, illustrator.  British Light Cavalry.  London:  Almark; 1977.

In this volume from Almark’s “Nations in Arms: 1800-1815” series, John Pimlott provides an excellent summary history of Britain’s light cavalry for the Napoleonic Period, to include information and background on tactics and battlefield formations.  He also includes a short description of the cavalry actions at Sahagun in 1808 and at Talavera in 1809.  Emil Bukhari provides ten excellent multi-figure color plates depicting officers and men of a number of these regiments.  These are augmented by the rectangular abstracts that allow the artist to show the trousers, jackets, and uniform details of additional units not depicted otherwise.  A short bibliography of contemporary and modern sources is included.

Wilkinson-Latham, Robert and Christopher, Jack Cassin-Scott, illustrator.  Cavalry Uniforms including other Mounted Troops of Britain and the Commonwealth in colour.  New York: Macmillan;1969.

A Blandford Press book, this volume shows the uniforms of British and Commonwealth mounted units from 1742 to 1953 in a set of 96 full color plates.  The notes for each plate provide additional details on the uniforms, horse harness, and other items as well as some background information on the unit.  Fifteen plates cover the period 1790 to 1815.

Wilkinson-Latham, Robert and Christopher, Jack Cassin-Scott, illustrator.  Infantry Uniforms Including Artillery and other Supporting Troops of Britain and the Commonwealth 1742-1855.  New York:  Macmillan; 1970.

This is the first of a two-volume set that covers British infantry and artillery uniforms from 1742 to 1939, with 96 color plates in each volume showing uniforms and equipment.  Volume I includes 34 plates showing British uniforms worn in Europe, North America, the Caribbean, and India during this period.  The text describing the uniform plates often includes additional details on weapons and equipment as well as the uniforms themselves.  There is a short bibliography of 19th and 29th Century sources.

French Uniforms

Dempsey, Guy C., Jr.  Napoleon's Soldiers, The Grande Armee of 1807 as Depicted in the Paintings of the Otto Manuscript.  London:  Arms and Armour Press, A Cassell Imprint; 1994.

This volume reproduces the 98 watercolors known as ‘the Otto manuscript’ supposed to have been collected by a Major Otto of Baden but the identity of the artist himself remains unknown or at least unconfirmed.  The subjects of the illustrations themselves include foot and mounted regiments of the Imperial Guard, line and light infantry regiments, various line cavalry regiments, support units, and four illustrations of Italian units.  An appendix provides an order of battle of the Grand Armee from 1 June 1807.  The text accompanying each uniform plate provides background information on the unit and on the uniform, especially noting items of the uniform and its details that are especially significant or previously unknown or unconfirmed.  An analysis of the Otto manuscript is also provided and this, like all of the text, is well footnoted.

     

Dempsey, Guy C., Jr.   Napoleon's Army 1807-1814, as Depicted in the Prints of Aaron Martinet.  London:  Arms and Armour Press, A Cassell Imprint; 1997.

In many ways this is a companion volume to the Otto Manuscripts book noted above and was also prepared by Guy Dempsey.  However, unlike that volume, this one reproduces only 162 of the original 296 prints collectively identified as “Troupes Francaises” done by the print maker Aaron Martinet during the time of Napoleon.  An introduction provides excellent background information on both the prints and the French army and the units illustrated.  The captions to the individual plates highlight specific details of interest in the uniform as well as in the prints themselves.  Appendices offer several versions that identify both the prints selected for reproduction in the volume and prints that were not reproduced.  Made during the period in which the uniforms were actually being worn, these prints are an important resource to anyone interested in the uniforms of Napoleon’s army.

Detaille, Edouard.  L'Armée Française: An Illustrated History of the French Army, 1790-1885.  New York:  Waxtel and Hasenauer; 1992.

This is a larger format volume presenting a translation of the original French published in the 19th Century and recounting the history of the French Army from 1790 to 1885.  This edition includes 21 full color plates reproducing paintings based on the soldiers, armies, and battles of the First and Second Empire.  The volume also features 349 black and white illustrations depicting uniforms and soldiers as well as vignettes of military life and special events of military history.  The text is overflowing in details of the army, its organization, equipment, etc.  A remarkable resource.

Thorburn, W. A. French Army Regiments and Uniforms from the Revolution to 1870.  Harrisburg:  Stackpole Books; 1969. 

In this small volume of only 84 pages in a small 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 format, Thorburn has gathered original illustrations (2 color plates and 58 black and white) to accompany his descriptions of French uniforms for the stated period of 1789 to 1870. The author describes this work with some accuracy as an introductory account of the evolution of French uniforms.  The text provides a summary history of the French Army and the changes it underwent over this period and descriptions of the depicted uniforms.  Although he does cover uniforms of the Republic and the various restorations, the greatest attention appears focused upon the uniforms of the First and Second Empires.

Russian Uniforms

Glinka, Vladislav Mikhailovich.  Russkii Voyennii Kostum, XVIII-nachala XX Veka.  Leningrad, Khudozhnik RSFSR; 1988.

This volume features over 133 color illustrations, including many reproducing contemporary artwork but also color and black and white photographs of surviving uniforms and reproductions of uniforms by Russian museums  clearly labeled as reproductions .  However, it is really a history of Russian uniforms and to a degree of the Russian army from the reign of Peter the Great to the 1917 Revolution.  It includes a glossary of relevant Russian vocabulary, often with illustrations, a bibliography, and a list of the illustrations in Russian and English.  There is a summary of the text in English but as it runs only two and a half pages it clearly is little more than an infomercial for the Russian version.

Leonov, Oleg and Il'ya Ul'yanov, Oleg Parkhayev  illustrator. Regulyarnaya Pekhota, 1698-1801.  Moskva:  AST; 1995.

A detailed history of the Russian army’s infantry and their uniforms, supported by Oleg Parkhayev’s illustrations – 75 color plates and more than a dozen black and white line drawings.  Much of the artwork depicts multiple figures, presenting a multitude of different uniforms, while the line drawings include depictions of the small arms drill, unit formations, and arms and equipment.  Several plates representing different uniform patterns over the period present the full range of infantry uniforms in the iconic format showing facings, collar, and cuff colors as well as the various forms of headgear.  There are also some excellent illustrations of some of the regimental and other colors carried by the army as they changed to feature the royal ciphers of the different Tsars.  The appendices include a short table of Russian weights and measures; the tables of enlistment for army infantry regiments at different dates across the period covered; and a roster of the infantry regiments of the army for this period with dates created and any territorial affiliations.  Bibliography also included.

Ul'yanov, Il'ya Ernstovich and Oleg K. Parkhayev  illustrator.  Regulyarnaya Pekhota, 1801-1855.  Moskva:  AST; 1996.

A larger format companion volume to the previously cited work, with only the one author but still with Oleg Parkhayev’s illustrations.  Of the same caliber and much the same in content as the previous volume but now covering this later period.

Letin, Sergei.  Russkii Voyenii Mundir XVIII Veka.  Moskva: AO PANAS-AERO; 1996.

A more recent work that covers much the same ground as Glinka’s volume above though only up to 1800, in a large format volume of only 114 pages.  The many color illustrations reproduce contemporary artwork as well as photographs of surviving original uniforms and uniform pieces as well as museum reproductions.  Includes an extensive bibliography.

Okhlyabinin, Sergei Dmitriyevich.  Chest' Mundira, Chini Traditsii, Litsa; Russkaya Armiya ot Petra I do Nikolaya II.  Moskva: Respublika; 1994.

Includes color plates illustrating 50 uniforms as well as very many black and white line drawings depicting uniforms, uniform details, military honors and decorations, and military accoutrements of the Russian military.  The accompanying text traces the campaign history of the Russian military and of the evolution of the Russian army through the Tsarist period.  An appendix presents an illustrated glossary of related Russian vocabulary.

Okhlyabinin, Sergei Dmitriyevich.  Iz Istorii Rossiiskogo Mundira.  Moskva: VLADOS; 1996.

A more expansive work by the same author as the above title, in much the same format with regards to content and presentation.

Talanov, A I.   Kavalergardii po Stranitsam Polkovoi Istorii: 1724-1825.  Moskva: Reitar; 1997.

A magazine-format history of the Russian Guard cavalry regiments during their first century.  Supported by eight pages of color illustrations reproducing contemporary art work and numerous black and white illustrations collectively showing both uniforms of the guard cavalry as well as key moments and key figures in their history.  Some good detail on the organization and composition of the guard is presented in the text but less on the uniforms and the appearance of these regiments.

Zemtsov, Vladimir Nikolayevich and Vladimir Aleksandrovich Lyapin, and Yu.  V. Pyatkov  illustrator.  Yekaterinburg v Mundire: Formennaya Odezhda v Istorii Yekaterinburga, XVIII-nachala XX v. Yekaterinburg, Sredne-Uralskoye Knizhnoye Izdatelstvo; 1992.

An interesting approach by the authors as this volume focuses upon the history of Russian army units associated with the city of Yekaterinburg, published as that city approached its 270th anniversary in 1993.  Thus it is a combination regimental history, military history of Russia, and an exercise in urban history.  Featuring many black and white line drawings of uniforms, equipment, standards, and military accoutrements, there are more than 30 pages of color illustrations reproducing portraits and many of the uniforms worn by the Yekaterinburg regiments throughout their history.  Extensively footnoted.
