L'ENCYCLOPEDIE DE L'ARMEE FRANCAISE  Oct 7, 2000
Jacques Sicard make a great work with The Chasseurs d'Afrique, they were a light cavalry version of the French Foreign Legion, and are perhaps best known through the book and film Under Two Flags. this volume's detailed French text is backed up by 150 b/w photos and 250 color illustrations providing extremely detailed coverage of the flags, equipment and all orders of dress of these troops, from the full fress of the 19th century through the combat uniforms of World War I. In addition to numerous campaigns in North Africa, this colorful regiment also served in the Franco­Prussian War and both World Wars. Algerian independence brought an end to the corps in 1962, and after over a century of service. Jacques Sicard's French text is supplemented by numerous breathtaking color illustrations of the regiment's many exotic uniforms, and armored vehicle markings and color schemes of more modern times. full color throughout, 144p. History, insignia, uniforms and equipment of the Army of Africa's horsemen of French origin, with emphasis on WW I and WW II. From the thirties the Chasseurs d'Afrique have been motorised and this outstanding book also features the complete coverage of their AFVs along with those of the Foreign Legion The volume concludes on a very dramatic note with full coverage of the transition from the dress uniforms worn in the early battles of 1914 to the more subdued dress worn by the end of WWI, as the Chassuers, like most cavalrymen of the era, divided their time between serving as infantry and waiting in reserve for the breakthrough that never came.
 
Good Eye Candy  Feb 26, 2000
French illustration in books is just better than what other folks can produce. If you have any interest in the French desert cavalry, this is the book for you. It is comprehensive in layout and covers virtually every aspect of the uniforms worn by the chasseurs in their century plus existence including the types of armored cars they used. Highly recommended. The text is in French, so don't whine.
