Uniformes des Guerres Napoléoniennes en Couleur, 1796–1814, Philip Haythornthwaite, Jack Cassin-Scott

The Napoleonic Wars were the dominating economic et political event in Europe in the early nineteenth century, et had far-reaching consequences. The great battles of this period – Marengo, Hohenlinden, Austerlitz, Jena, Corunna, et those de la Campagne de Russie – are handsomely evoked in the pages of this book.

For the armies involved, these battles presented the ideal opportunity of expressing their national pride in some of the most splendid et colourful uniforms which, for sheer panache et elaborate decoration, have never been equalled.

This book illustrates et describes the uniforms of more than fifteen European armies in the 80 pages of magnificent full-colour plates by Jack Cassin-Scott. John Fabb, whose family have supplied ceremonial regalia et accoutrements to the armies of Europe for over a century, has provided references for the illustrations which cover the main features of every uniform. Detailed drawings of arms, headgear, saddlery et other accessories in use during the period are also included. There is a comprehensive text by Philip J. Haythornthwaite, which gives important data on the history et dress of every regiment; et there is an Historical Introduction to the conflict.

Uniformes des Guerres Napoléoniennes is the perfect guide for anyone who is interested in the study ou the construction of model soldiers of this particular period, et a special feature is an Appendix on the Order of Bataille de the Grande Armée, 1812.
