Book Description

In the summer of 1804, the eagle was chosen as the symbol of the French Army by Napoleon himself. The Emperor's sculptor, Chaudet, made the original model, and from this were cast bronze copies in the workshop of Thomire, which would be proudly borne into battle by many a French regiment. This fascinating work by Terence Wise explores in depth the flags, colours and guidons of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), concentrating on France and her allies, and covering every faction from Baden to Würzburg. This book is a must for anyone interested in this fascinating topic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking June 6, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are 3 books in this series and if you put them all together it would hardly worth the price of one. Not enough color pictures
or unit/regiment flags. The color pictures they do include are small and substandard, you can see better examples and more, simply by a internet search. Very disappointed in the overall quality and lack of color examples.
