Absolutely outstanding book on the subject. Nothing is left unexplored. A vast font of knowledge that no napoleonic student can afford to be without. You will not be disappointed. I cannot recommend this publication highly enough.

This really is a superb book. It would be extremely hard to think of anything that is not to be found on the subject within these covers, and so beautifully presented. I do hope his book on the Seven Years War uniforms is to be published. This is in a league of its own.

Absolutely fantastic reference book - does everything I expected of it and more - very happy to recommend this to anyone interested in military history or, as with me, in painting 28mm plastic/metal miniatures.

An excellent book, 382 pages packed with information and well illustrated with line drawings and colour plates. It covers everything a military historian or military modeller is likely to require, including organisation, drills and exercises, equipment, carriages and harness configurations, and uniforms.

It makes the Osprey type books look very lightweight by comparison.
