The paratroopers get only one picture to show them using air force overalls and soft headgear - but they do manage to get a plate in volume two of this series.

During the Civil War, the Naval Infantry was regarded as the best soldiers in the revolutionary military. The massive expansion of the Naval Infantry deserved more coverage than simply pointing to their black uniforms and lack of special badge. The fact that the author buries the reader under a mass of near-useless information about various types of uniforms and service caps, and then neglects to mention how these troops were trained or fought is insulting.

I will give this book four stars because of the amount of useful information in terms of unit organization and rare pictures.
