Steampunk Soldiers

Steampunk Soldiers: Uniforms & Weapons from the Age of Steam (Dark) - Philip Smith, Joseph McCullough

Steampunk Soldiers is a pictorial guide and a historical study of the variety of steam-powered weaponry and equipment before the Great War of the Worlds.

I found this book interesting to read because the different take on history with the rise of steam technology at the start of the American Civil War that change the world history. Unfortunately, I did find that the book dragged a bit. A much as I enjoyed reading about this alternative world was it just not always that interesting to read about the different soldiers. But I do admit that the pictures of them made the book a bit better! The part I liked best reading was the one about the American soldiers and the quite different turn of history with the Union winning the war.

I recommend this book to anyone that like weapons, soldiers and steampunk!
