“Gazette des uniformes et des armes” originated as a magazine that dealt with both weapons and uniforms until number 18, and then split into 2 journals that each specialized in its own field. “Uniformes” therefore began at number 19 in May of 1974 under the name of "Gazette des Uniformes", then became, a few years later (between #34 and #37), "uniformes les armées de l'histoire" or more simply “uniformes”. 

“Uniformes” is devoted to the study of primarily French uniforms but also includes information about other countries. Many of the articles are written by well known historians and artists in the fields of military history and uniformology There are articles about specific army units, items of equipment, famous military artists, militaria, military society meetings, and figurines. Many issues contain an article by Michel Petard from his wonderful “l’homme de…” series, many of which were later combined into the book “de Fontenoy a Waterloo”. Each article takes a particular unit of the French army and gives the unit history and a detailed description and illustrations of its uniform and equipment. These alone are, to me, worth collecting this important publication.
