This work is an outline of the history of military uniforms postcards of the Polish army in the Napoleonic era. The subject of interest is the authors of illustrations (depicting horsemen or foot soldiers) and publishers, both Polish and foreign. Such publishing initiatives started in the late 19th and early 20th centuries on Polish territories under the partitions, and continuing in interwar Poland until the present day. Uniforms postcards with Polish motifs were also issued outside Poland at that time; there were such publications in France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Russia. Included is a list of publishers, in chronological order, from each country. Some of the postcards are described in great detail, evaluating the authenticity of the military uniform and equipment. In a separate chapter the author presents biographical notes on the 37 illustrators.

Selected images of postcards, cards, and carnets included in this work are accompanied by their description and a factual analysis of the clothing and equipment shown. Where a publisher has published many cards, a detailed list of them is presented in a table. This will allow future uniform scholars or military historians to reach them and carry out accurate analyses of the conformity of the images of historical uniforms with the military dress regulations of the time.

The first part of the book is in Polish, and the second one includes a full English translation. Common to both parts are illustrations with Polish and English descriptions, a bibliography, an index of authors and a detailed index of all illustrations.

The book Military uniform on the postcard can be purchased separately or with the supplement, which is the second part of the postcard collection entitled The Polish Uniforms 1797-1815, series 11-20. It is authored (as part 1) by the eminent historical uniform expert Ryszard Morawski.
