First edition. Jacket rubbed with a few minor chips and minor tears to edges. Top page ridge faintly foxed. 1979 Large Hardcover. We have more books available by this author!. x, 136 pp. Volume IV only. Illustrated by Randy Steffen. This is the fourth and final volume of Randy Steffen's monumental work, The Horse Soldier. With this volume the work brings together—in nearly a thousand pages of text and nearly 500 illustrations—a comprehensive history of the cavalryman’s dress, horse equipment, weaponry — every item the horse soldier wore, carried, or used—from Revolutionary times to World War II. Volume IV covers the final twenty-five years—the World War I years, when the United States Cavalry fought for the first time as part of an allied force; the peacetime years, when the cavalry was largely a show force; and World War II, when mechanization finally outmoded the horse soldier, and the horse was traded for the tank. The cavalry became history.
