Very informative book.

Only 9 left in stock (more on the way). Very informative book. A must for anyone interested in the Civil War or the War Between the States, depending on which side of the Mason/Dixon Line you are from, If you do miniatures like myself, knowing what flags were used and a peek at the flags from other units, helps a lot. I had family members on both sides.

Katcher, Richard Scollins (Illustrator). Complemented by numerous illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Rick Scollins, this book by Philip Katcher provides a fascinating examination of the Union flags of the American Civil War (1861-1865). The regimental or battery set of colours was more than simply a unit designation, issued for the ease of a commander in identifying his units in the field. It was the very symbol of the regiment; it was its heart, the thing that drew its members together.

The regimental or battery set of colours was more than simply a unit designation, issued for the ease of a commander in identifying his units in the field. It was the very symbol of the regiment; it was its heart, the thing that drew its members together. As such it was fiercely defended in action, where it flew in the centre of the line. Complemented by numerous illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Rick Scollins, this book by Philip Katcher provides a fascinating examination of the Union flags of the American Civil War (1861-1865).

A good guide for flags used by the Union forces during the War between the States. It covers various Union flags and unit pennants. It also provides actual photos and artist illustrations of both. While not a difinitive account of all the flags and pennants used by the Union, it is informative enough to reproduce actual versions of those illustrated.

The version I purchased is a "transferred to digital print on demand". This version uses inferior quality paper similar to copier paper. The reproductions of photographs are horrible, lacking contrast and detail. Some faces in the photos are nothing more that white blobs with no recognition features. I would recommend taking a chance and ordering an older used copy. This is sad for Osprey's usual quality books.
