Turkish Army: Crimean War Uniforms – Volume 1

Turkish Army: Crimean War Uniforms – Volume 1. The key source of information is the research of Charles A. Norman, British military artist and researcher. Norman's work transliterated original observations, illustrations, and notes made by two Crimean War Commentators: Joseph-Emile Vanson, and Constantin Guys. Constantin Guys was a reporter, and illustrator for The Illustrated London News, and in 1854 was assigned to the Crimea to produce drawings of wartime scenes which could be turned into engravings for news. Constantin Guys documented various Turkish uniforms, with his description of each scene, written in English on the back of the drawing or below it. The approach has been to overlay Norman's original interpretations, combining this with other period written descriptions, illustrations, paintings, and photographs taken at the time, hopefully getting a closer interpretation of the Turkish Army uniforms seen in the Crimea. Many of the library and museum collections provide a significant amount of information. However, much of this is not accurately dated. The dating of these often slip by two or three years, and up to a decade earlier or later. The illustrations presented in both volumes are based on this combination of materials. $44.00 USD

The Finnish Armored Units: 1919 – 1945. After gaining independence in 1917, Finland fell into a three-month civil war, at the end of which the front formed by republicans, conservatives, and monarchists defeated socialist and communist opponents. The Finnish Armored Corps traces its origin back to 1919, when a Tank Regiment was formed on July 15 with FT-17 tanks. Between WWI and WWII, the Finnish army made an effort to modernize its armored forces, acquiring assets from abroad and reorganizing its structure several times. The Finnish armored units took part in three major conflicts: the Winter War (1939-40), the Continuation War (1941-1944), and the Lapland War (1944-45). $29.00 USD
