Uniforms of the German Colonial Troops 1884-1918

by Charles Woolley

Uniforms of the German Colonial Troops 1884-1918 Synopsis

The Schutztruppen, the Expedition Korps, and III. See-Bataillon of the Imperial German Marines were the forces assigned to protect Germanys far-flung Colonial possessions in Africa and China. Uniform students and modelers have found scant published references to the varied and unique uniforms of these forces. This highly illustrated book fills that gap. Color illustrations by Germanys leading 19th and 20th century artists, black and white drawings taken from rare period books, plus over sixty unpublished quality photographs from the album of a III. See-Bataillon Marine stationed at the great German Naval base at Tsingtau, China, cover in detail the unusual uniforms of the Kaisers Colonial forces. A must for the Imperial German bookself.
