About this product
- DescriptionFor the early years of the American War of Independence (1775-1783), George Washington's troops were clothed in a variety of uniforms from various sources. With the receipt in late 1778 of over 25,000 uniforms imported from France, much of the Continental army was uniformly clothed in blue or brown coats faced with red. This study by Marko Zlatich focuses on the systems used by state and Continental authorities to procure clothing materials from this point onwards, the quantities they obtained and the specifications of the uniforms themselves. Eight colour plates by the talented Bill Younghusband and a plethora of black and white photographs and illustrations usefully support the author's detailed text.
- Author BiographyMarko Zlatich lives in Washington, D.C. Having worked for 25 years managing technical information services at the World Bank, Marko has now retired. He now spends much of his time engaged as an associate researcher with the Division of Armed Forces History at the Smithsonian Institution.
