Osprey Elite 62 : American Civil War Zouaves

Among the mass of units formed in the early months of the American Civil War were several of the colourful Zouave units. Inspired by the French colonial units raised in North Africa with their distinctive uniforms and reputation as hard fighters, units with names as colourful as their uniforms began to appear. Robin Smith details the uniforms and battles of these flamboyant units accompanied by illustrations by Bill Younghusband. Robin has had a long term interest in the American Civil war, and in the Zouave units in particular. He is a member of the 5th New York Zouaves re-enactment unit.
