Contents:The book is aimed at making information on the Russian and Turkish Crimean War armies' organisations and uniforms easily available in compact form. So, it details the Organisations and Orders of Battle of the armies concerned, which the authors believe is not as easy to find as uniform detail. With this in mind, although the reader will find that general references are made to the army as a whole, the authors have concentrated on those units serving in the Crimean War itself.
