Military Flags of the World in Colour (1618-1900) fills a surprising gap in the international study of flags, for most flag books deal exclusively with national flags, while those specialising in military flags each concentrate on one major power. Furthermore, these relatively few books remain in their native languages and have mostly been out of print for decades. This book, therefore, gathers together for the first time in handy reference form, the flags borne by the armies of the world, from the Thirty Years War in the seventeenth century to the colonial wars of the late nineteeth century. Throughout the book the emphasis has been placed on the Colours, Standards and Guidons carried in battle; not those employed solely for display or ceremonial purposes; while the period covered enables the story of the military flag to be told from the time when the military formation known as a regiment first began to appear, to the date when flags were no longer carried in action as a general rule. Terence Wise, the author, is a professional military writer and this, his twelfth book, is the culmination of many years of research. He is a member of the Heraldry Society, Flag Research Center of Massachusetts, librarian of the Military Heraldry Society, member of the Flag institute of Britain and chairman of the Victorian Military Society. Guido Rosignoli, the artist, is also prominent in the field of heraldry, having so far contributed five books as both author and illustrator on army, air force, and civil badges and insignia to the Blandford list.
