This illustrated study of Napoleon's cavalry is being made available to the English language market in its original French edition, because of the huge demand amongst Napoleonic military enthusiasts for the wealth of original photographs and illustrations it contains. The project is simply too massive to appear in English for the foreseeable future, but real enthusiasts (armed with a French dictionary) will snap up this edition. The book, by two leading writers on the subject, presents a detailed coverage of the uniforms, accoutrements, flags, emblems and weaponry of various French Chasseurs and Hussars throughout the period of Napoleon's Empire. It contains a wealth of original colour illustrations, including photographic reconstructions of pistols being loaded and fired. The text is mainly in the form of extended captions, and explains the developments throughout the period.
