Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Veteran Napoleonic historian Philip Haythornwaite explains to a modern audience just how the light cavalry of the Napoleonic era did their business. This Osprey Elite Series book is consciously a companion volume to the author's earlier volume "Napoleonic Heavy Cavalry & Dragoons Tactics" in explaining the many roles and tactics of the light cavalry.

"Napoleonic Light Cavalry Tactics" begins with a discussion of the origins of light cavalry and their formations and tactics. The illustrations by Adam Hook helpfully explain just how formations were supposed to look on the battlefield. Successive chapters detail some specialty ethnic light cavalry units such as Polish Lancers, Russian Cossacks, and Egyptian Mamelukes. The various light cavalry missions are explained, with examples and some very nice period art. The book closes with a detailed examination of two cavalry actions in 1814. This reviewer found especially interesting the discussion about the uses by light cavalry of swords and carbines.

"Napoleonic Light Cavalry Tactics" is highly recommended as a clear and readable introduction to the topic for the general reader and for the student of Napoleonic warfare.

Another classic from osprey publishers, it's amazing how much detail can be crammed into so few pages. Definitely worth buying.
