Imperial German Cavalry Field Gray Uniform 1914

The end of the 19th century and the advent of the machine-gun and modern warfare spelled and end to the bright colorful uniforms on the battlefield. Whatever the German uniform designers sacrificed in color they more than made up for in elegance. The uniforms are totally field gray with unit colors and rank distinctions for highlights. This is great coverage of a little seen subject.
