Osprey Elite 134 : Buffalo Soldiers 1892-1918
The segregated regiments of African-American troops represented an important minority in the small US Army at the turn of the 20th century. Units saw service in the Spanish-American War, in the Philippines jungle until 1902 and during the Mexican border campaign of 1916. Finally, in France 1917-18, black units suffered nearly 6,000 casualties, and four regiments were cited for their bravery. Despite suffering racial discrimination, they served with courage and discipline. This book covers the often ignored part of the Buffalo soldiers in these campaigns and the several different field uniforms worn during this period. Text by Ron Field with illustrations by Richard Hook.
