Ponderoso volume interamente illustrato a colori e in b/n che presenta uno studio dettagliato delle uniformi, dell’equipaggiamento e dell’armamento della cavalleria tedesca dalla fondazione dell’Impero nel 1871 allo scoppio della prima guerra mondiale: corazzieri, dragoni sassoni, cavalleggeri bavaresi, ussari, ulani, ecc. Le immagini provengono soprattutto dal museo dell’esercito bavarese di Ingolstadt e da collezioni private. 

With its traditions and diversity the German cavalry represented the most colourful branch of service of the German Empire. To an extent never seen before, this 640-page, magnificently illustrated book shows the uniforms, equipment and armament of the entire German cavalry from the foundation of the Empire in 1871 to the eve of the First World War in 1914. Brilliant colour photographs give the reader a graphic and practically complete picture of the splendid headgear of cuirassiers, Saxon 'Schwere Reiter', dragoons, Bavarian cheveaulegers, hussars, uhlans and mounted Jäger. Numerous photographs of original specimens - from the Bayerisches Armeemuseum in Ingolstadt and supplemented by items from major collections - document the different branches of the service and the state contingents of the German Empire. The mode of wearing individual uniforms and items of equipment is illustrated by contemporary black and white photographs. Based on still extant sources such as clothing regulations or military decrees, the book endeavours to document modifications and alterations to different items of equipment over a period of 43 years. Not only the collector can learn a wealth of new aspects, the military historian can also gain a valuable overview due to the well structured and systematic arrangement of the book.
