About the Author

Philip Haythornthwaite is an internationally respected author and historical consultant specializing in the military history, uniforms and equipment of the 18th and 19th centuries. His main area of research covers the Napoleonic Wars. He has written some 40 books, including more than 20 Osprey titles, and numerous articles and papers on military history - but still finds time to indulge in his other great passion, cricket. Adam Hook studied graphic design, and began his work as an illustrator in 1983. He specializes in detailed historical reconstructions, and has illustrated Osprey titles on subjects as diverse as the Aztecs, the Ancient Greeks, Roman battle tactics, several 19th-century American subjects, the modern Chinese Army, and a number of books in the Fortress series. His work features in exhibitions and publications throughout the world.

Usual Osprey standard. The depth of knowledge cannot be gone into in such a small volume but it is good for what it is.

Hussars and Cossacks... 25 Mar 2014
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
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.
