HASH(0x950e15c4) out of 5 stars Good but should be more. 25 April 2012

Although I am a bit bias here since I love anything to do with Swiss troops, I did like the book overall although it was a bit short. I understand Osprey books aren't the "go to" books in terms of pages (most don't go past 96 and few are beyond 128) and this book is only 48 pages long. In my opinion that is a bit to short to get a good idea overall of the Swiss under Napoleon, but with the space limitations, the author does a great job describing them in the space he has.

HASH(0x956931e0) out of 5 stars Typical Osprey 14 April 2013
By Matthew Baumgartner - Published on
While not for the casual reader, if your interest is the Swiss contingents in Napoleon's Grand Armee, this will give you more info than you could ever need. For the painter of military miniatures, the detail of the illustrations and the amount of other information included take care of all your needs.

Very well documented, good companion for the SWISS IN FRENCH SERVICE.- These brave mercenaries deserve praise and recognition. More often than not, they held the first line in the French Armies. The retreating Grand Armé was saved at Beresina by the undefatigable Swiss. Maps and schematic troop deployments would have had certainly made this fine work unbeatable. Maybe with a second edition........
