Book Description

28 July 1988 Men-at-arms
Though less celebrated than the infantry and cavalry, Napoleon's 'specialist' troops - artillery, engineers and supporting services - were indispensable elements without which no army could have operated, and frequently assumed greater significance than the line regiments. Indeed, having suffered least from the emigration of Royalist officers, the artillery was the best element of the early Republican armies, the nucleus of the old Royal artillery serving with distinction in the early campaigns such as Valmy. The organisation and uniform of Napoleon's specialist troops are here examined by Philip Haythornwaite in a engaging volume complemented by a wealth of illustrations including eight full page colour plates by Bryan Fosten.

Osprey subject matter experts do it again with a great book. This covers the departments that make up combat service support and combat support. The uniforms and units are covered with great detail. Organization and mission are covered with each department, this adds a clear understanding of each mission type performed under each department. The best part of the reading is the rating used by the author to describe each department functioned during the war.
