Between 1887 and 1895, the British art student Miles Vandercroft travelled around the world, sketching and painting the soldiers of the countries through which he passed. In this age of dramatic technological advancement, Vandercroft was fascinated by how the rise of steam technology at the start of the American Civil War had transformed warfare and the role of the fighting man. This volume collects all of Vandercroft's surviving paintings, along with his associated commentary on the specific military units he encountered. It is a unique pictorial guide to the last great era of bright and colourful uniforms, as well as an important historical study of the variety of steam-powered weaponry and equipment that abounded in the days before the Great War of the Worlds.
Bart (El Barto) Simpson is the modern Roger the Dodger for the 21st Century that bring humour and mischief to the reader and something that is going to be a great gift for fans of the Simpon. It’s definitely fun, ha a great humour and when added to the likeable nature of the TV phenomenon give the reader a book that is a whole lot of fun.
All round I’d advise that this book is perhaps used as a stocking filler and for me is a book that I’ll have a whole heap of fun reading quite a few more times so I’m up to date on possible future nephew schemes. LOL
