The Kaiser's Hussars in World War One, covers each of the elements of the Hussar's uniform from his head covering to his trousers for both the pre-Feldgrau and the Feldgrau. It then goes into a lengthy discussion for each of the 31 regiments that were activated in August 1914 (LGHR, 1.LHR to HR 20, and the ten Reserve Regiments). It discusses the regiment's garrison, the specific uniforms of each regiment and then the regiment's activities during the war. I've been able to find some firsthand descriptions of some of the combat action translated from German soldiers' diaries and US Intelligence reports. It is illustrated with maps and numerous period photos as well as lots of photos of the uniforms and Busbies. I finish the discussion of each regiment by identifying the regiment that it transitioned into during WWII which enable the tradition of the regiment to continue.
