Packed with specially commissioned artwork, maps and diagrams, the Men-at-Arms series is an unrivalled illustrated reference on the history, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the world's military forces, past and present.

He is a prolific author, who has contributed many titles to the Men-at-Arms series on the armies and forces of the Napoleonic Wars. A former major in the British Army, he is now retired, but continues to write books on this key period.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Overall, it is a very good book for those looking for uniform details, order of battle, and a brief campaign history. One error is that the 1st edition 1975 text was not updated completely with the 1992 edition with its new color plates. The 1992 text therefore notes for "Fusilier-Garde, see color plate" for more details and it is not there. The same is true for the Husaren-Garde". For organization you must look at Osprey books on the French since this army copied their doctrine. The 1809 campaign also references the Brunwicker book for details.

Format: Paperback
If either of these two armies interests you, this book is a must have. The color plates are excellent, and so are the army and uniform descriptions. A must have for wargamers and enthusiasts alike.
