During the last decades of the 1800s and the first decade of the 1900s, some of the most elegant and colorful military service caps (schirmmützen) were worn by the Imperial German cavalry. The unique color combinations identified each regiment, and were the last stand for military fashion before and during World War I. This book is the first complete reference on schirmmützen, and shows and describes the headgear for all branches of the Imperial German cavalry. The pre-war models as well as the M-7 and M-15 war model caps are all illustrated in color photos and original period postcards. The book also provides German nomenclature for the caps and valuable tips on how to collect and identify the various regiments.
