208 pp, folio (14 1/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "In a stunning collection of full colour plates, this superb book captures the spirit of the Imperial Guard cavalry and their role in Napoleon's battles. It fully conveys the glory of soldiers of a military era surpassing the splendour of any other.---(B)rings together, for the very first time, ninety-one colour plates by the celebrated artist Lucien Rousselot. The plates, housed in the Anne S.K. Brown Miltiary Collection, illustrate Nap oleon's key Guard cavalry units: the Dragoons (25 plates), a regiment established in 1806; the Chasseurs (27 plates), formed from Napoleon's own personal bodyguard of 'Guides'; the Polish Light Horse (25 plates), the first foreign regiment to be p a r t of the Imperial Guard; and the Grenadiers (13 plates), the most feared of all the French army's regiments. In addition there is one vivid picture of Napoleon, wearing his favourite uniform - that of the Chasseurs (frontispiece). Carefully re se ar ched by the leading French exponent of the history of uniforms, Lucien Rousselot, from primary sources, including surviving uniforms and official documents, and brilliantly executed, these paintings are the very best of their type and supe r b e xam ple s of military art. Accompanying texts by Edward Ryan provide information on the regiments' uniforms, colourful Guard commanders and hard-fought battles, and an Introduction charts the origins and development of the Guard cavalry."
