No other period in history has produced such magnificent uniforms as those worn by the soldiers involved in the Napoleonic Wars. Napoleonic Uniforms is the only reference work of its kind to depict accurately the entire Grande Arme in detail. It portrays the French armies as seen by their contemporaries, and combines authoritative text with lavish illustrations. This superb two-volume set depicts in magnificent colour the uniforms of the Royal Army, Emigrant Troops, Revolutionary Armies, and the Army of Egypt. The new edition will be presented in a cloth bound slipcase.
Herbert Kntel's plates, recognised by uniform specialists as being amongst the best and most accurate, fully capture all the beauty, verve and swagger of this colourful episode in military history. With more than nine hundred plates, each with an authoritative caption by Colonel John Elting, Napoleonic Uniforms is the standard source of reference on the uniforms of Napoleon's allies and opponents.
Colonel John R. Elting was the foremost expert on Napoleon's Grande Arme and the armies of the Napoleonic period; his books include the acclaimed Swords Around a Throne and, with Vincent J. Esposito, the authoritative A Military History and Atlas of the Napoleonic Wars. Herbert Kntel was an acclaimed illustrator of military uniforms from a distinguished family of artists and historians. John H. Gill is the author of With Eagles to Glory: Napoleon and his German Allies in the 1809 Campaign and the forthcoming Thunder on the Danube: Napoleons Defeat of the Habsburgs.
