SOLDIER OF EUROPEAN INFANTRY.
Soldier of European Infantry from the NYPL
This subject represents a private soldier of the corps described in the foregoing page: he is in the act of charging with the bayonet: in the back-ground a field of battle is represented. The individuals which compose the different corps of the Turkish armies. are in general possessed of the essential requisites of a soldier, hardihood and courage; and if the government was to adopt more of the modem military improvements and tactics of the other European nations, the Ottoman armies would soon become very formidable to their enemies.
Next: Officer of Spahis
