Reviews - What do customers think about CHINA (Armies of the Nineteenth Century : Asia Volume 2)?

manchu armies  Sep 7, 2008
A wonderful book in a wonderful series,Mr.Heath does it again in the "China" volume of Armies Of The 19th. Century.
The book contains exellent line drawings of flags and the dress of the warriors of this neglegted era. The text concisely describes these forgotten campaigns, the organization, tactics and weapons of the different armies.
Although there are other books on the Boxer Rebellion and even at least one or two about the Taiping Rebellion, they're millitary aspects are not as well covered as in this work.
Also covered in this book are the Miao, Nien, Panthay and Tungan rebellions. A chapter is devoted to the the "Ever-Victorious Army" and other colorfull groups of American, British and French mercenary-led forces. The savage and brutal war waged by Chinese colonists against the native tribes of Formosa gets it's due. The corrupt and somewhat feeble, if enormus Manchu (Imperial)army is covered in great detail. The book also has a chapter covering the Mongols in this period.
Overall, an exellent addition to your bookshelf if you have any interest in this subject.
A real gem  Jun 8, 2007
This is really an excellent find. A beautifully bound, very exhaustive and informative text on a very important yet poorly covered area of military activity. Anybody vaguely interested in the subject should own this.
