Product Description

About the Author

Ronald Pawly is a respected member of several international societies for Napoleonic studies, and an expert on 19th century military portraiture. He is the author of the monumental The Red Lancers: Anatomy of a Napoleonic Regiment (Crowood Press, 1998), and has contributed to two major French reference works, 'Repertoire Mondiale des Souvenirs Napoleoniens'and 'Dictionnaire des Colonels de Napoleon'. Patrice Courcelle was born in northern France in 1950 and has been a professional illustrator for some 20 years. Entirely self-taught; he has illustrated many books and magazine articles for Continental publishers, and his work hangs in a number of public and private collections. His other enthusiasms include music and cooking. Patrice lives close to the battlefield of Waterloo with his wife and son.

Buy this book for a good summary of unit history and art 14 July 2004
By danny boy - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the whole essence of Osprey MAA books. The text and art captures perfectly an excellent summary of an illustrous unit. There are two errors (in plates B and D respectively) in the depiction of the czapska being worn square on the head with the plume in front, whereas the usual and correct depiction is that the czapska was worn at an angle with the plume over the left eyebrow.
Nevertheless, any collaboration between Ronald Pawly and Patrice Courcelle on the Napoleonic era is worth buying.
