Don Troiani is one of America's most talented and respected historical artists. His specialty is the Civil War, and this, the third book showcasing his artwork, has 380 color illustrations, including 250 photos of uniforms and associated gear, and 130 reproductions of Troiani's paintings. Many pictures are of individual soldiers, highlighting the wide variety of uniforms worn by soldiers of both sides, while others show the troops in battle. The headgear, shoes, knapsacks, drums and other photographed items mostly come from Troiani's vast personal collection, while others are from the West Point Museum, the collections of New York State, Confederate Memorial Hall, and smaller museums and private collections. The text by Coates, former curator of the National Security Agency's National Cryptologic Museum, and writer McAfee covers the state militia of the early days of the war, the infantry, cavalry, artillery, the gaudy "Zouaves," foreign volunteers and other branches, while chapter notes and a brief bibliography direct readers seeking more information on a favorite unit or uniform. This 9"×12" compendium should please buffs and reenactors re-creating period costume. (Oct.)
