£25.00 £3.99

This comprehensive book details the foreign units which formed such an important part of Napoleon’s forces. It examines each non-French unit in turn, giving an overview of the unit’s origins, its organisational and combat history, its uniforms and standards, and details of the unit’s eventual fate. Colourful accounts, taken from contemporary reports and memoirs, emphasise the qualities of the unit and throw light on what life was like for many of the foreign soldiers recruited into the Grande Armée.
