Army

Generally, an army is an all-terrain, land-based fighting force. Armies have historically been mobile through a combination of vehicle, horse, and foot travel. The army is the oldest organized fighting force and revolves around infantry forces. Because every major nation developed an army over time, there are countless military collectibles available.

The uniforms, weapons, and equipment used by an army change with the nation and their tactics. Thus, collectors can focus on one category of item, one historical time period, or geographical area when amassing items.


Quick Facts

  • Uniforms have always evolved to match contemporary tactics. The famous red coats of the British were used so commanders could effectively identify their own troops, whereas camouflage is often used today
  • Armies lived on their feet, so most revolutions in footwear were due to the military
  • The basis of the modern army has always been the rifle. Since the 1700s, the rifle has been the main weapon for the infantry
