** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** The expansion of France’s North African Empire began in the eighteen-thirties. As military involvement increased, more units, both metropolitan and native were raised to keep the peace among the tribes in the hostile desert environment where most of the fighting took place. Most famous of all these was the French Foreign Legion whose legends were born in the distant dusty forts of the Algerian desert. Not least, however were the other legendary formations created such as the Zouaves, Spahis and Chasseurs D’Afrique whose exploits are renowned the world over. We show the uniforms found in a rare French volume produced before the First World War illustrated by Rousselot and the detailed schematics and uniform items of Messrs. Lienhart and Humbert from their massive work on the French Army in 1904. A useful and informative text describing the uniforms and their wearers accompanies the illustrations. (41 plates plus text)
