Extremely useful illustrated work of Imperial Russian Military Regiments previously known and unknown to collectors. A handbook for both the Imperial Russian badge collector and military historian of Imperial units and regiments.
While Andolenko’s 1960s work on the subject remains a classic, the authors further expanded the reach and research about Russia’s badges. They photographed and documented hundreds of specimens found in museums and private collections worldwide. When original examples could not be found, accurate color illustrations take their place. A ‘must have’ from beginner to advanced collector.
