Perhaps the most famous - and certainly the most exotic - uniforms of the Civil War belonged to the Zouaves, troops of French derivation whose vibrant attire was accented by fezzes and baggy trousers. These soldiers cut a flashy figure, and Troiani depicts them in all their colourful glory. This volume also covers the uniforms of engineers, surgeons, marines, and generals.
