A Dictionary of the Cuirassier Officers of the First Empire 1805-1815
Lapray, Oliver
ISBN: 9782352500261
Histoire & Collection  2008 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 240 pages, many colour photos of equipment, colour illustrations and colour artworks. This book aims to present a picture of Cuirassier Officers of the First Empire. Only French and foreign soldiers who served with officer rank within a French Cuirassier regiment during the Empire have been included here. The officers are shown here according to their complete patronymic, mentioning where appropriate the name that was used the most or their nicknames. Each entry includes the date of birth, and the place if known, the dates of promotions, successive transfers, wounds and feats of arms where known. The entries were compiled using the registers and the rolls of the officers of the fourteen cuirassier regiments which existed between 1804 and 1815; in each entry we have shown how the names of the regiments changed.   As New

Armies of the Irish Rebellion 1798
Reid, Stuart
ISBN: 9781849085076
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA472. A stunning exploration of a legendary moment in Irish history. In 1798 with the British Army preoccupied in fighting France in the Caribbean and Mediterranean as well as guarding Southeast England from threatened invasion, a co-ordinated uprising broke out across the water in Ireland. Uniquely this was neither a Catholic nor a Protestant rebellion, but rather a joint effort by leaders and insurgents from both sides of the community. The Irish Rebellion (1798) was directed against the corrupt government based at Dublin Castle and was inspired in part by the people's revolutions in America and France. This title illuminates the lives of the Irish peasants, armed mostly with pikes, who confronted the small number of British troops based in their country.   As New

Austrian Commanders of the Napolenonic Wars 1792-1815
Hollins, David
ISBN: 184176664X
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, ELI101. Throughout the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, France’s most consistent enemy on land was the Austrian Empire. Austria's huge armies played a central part in the several coalitions against France, from the 1790s, to the Austerlitz campaign of 1805, the closely-balanced battles of 1809, and the final upsurge of 1813-14. Contrary to the myth of rigid aristocratic conformity, the generals who led those armies were as diverse in origin and character as their regiments - some were princes of the blood, and some ex-rankers promoted for talent and courage. This text gives concise but fact-packed accounts of the careers of more than 30 of these men, illustrated with portraits and meticulous colour plates. Contents: Introduction - the composition and workings of the Austrian generalcy and staff; The princes and nobles: Archduke Charles - Archduke Ferdinand - Prince Hohenzollern-Hechingen - Prince Johannes Lichtenstein - Duke of Saxe-Teschen - Prince Schwarzenberg; The Westerners: Bellegarde - Frimont - Hiller - Wurmser; The Easteners: Alvinczy - Kray - Melas - Vukassovich; The Chiefs-of-Staff: Mack - Radetsky - Schmitt - Weyrother - Wimpffen - Zach; The Anglo-Irish: Brady - O'Reilly - Swinburn.   As New

British Redcoat 1793-1815
Reid, Stuart
ISBN: 9781855325562
Osprey Pub Co  1997 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR020. In 1783 the British army struggled home from North America in a shattered condition. It had acquitted itself well, but its regiments were now woefully understrength, and it was not until 1789 that they were again fit for service. Little more than three years later, Republican France declared war, and, apart from two short periods, the army was to be heavily engaged around the globe for the next 23 years. Beginning where Warrior 19 British Redcoat 1740-93 ends, Stuart Reid shows how the army was re-organised, re-equipped, re-trained and led from the bitter struggle in the West Indies to the final reckoning at Waterloo.  As New

British Rifleman 1797-1815
Haythornthwaite, Philip
ISBN: 9781841761770
Osprey Pub Co  2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, WAR047. The rifle corps of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars are among the most recognisable of all the soldiers of that era: their distinctive dark green uniforms are as familiar as some of their exploits. They have achieved considerable fame through the large numbers of memoirs written by members of the rifle corps as well as through modern fiction, most notably the Sharpe series. Apart from their reputation as a corps d'elite, the riflemen were, in their time, at the very cutting edge of military technology and tactical theory. Philip Haythornwaite here uses fascinating first hand accounts and detailed research to give a 'soldier's-eye view' of the British Rifleman, his life and work. Contents: Chronology - Recruiting - Training - Appearance - Equipment - Conditions of Service - On Campaign - Experience of Battle - Colour Plate Commentary - Glossary - Bibliography - Index.  As New

French General Officers, Staff Officers & Aides De Camp 1734-1890
Krickel, Ruhl, Pietsch
Uniformology  2006 
 Soft Cover ** FREE POSTAGE within Australia, postage overseas at cost -- Note: Postage will be added automatically when you place an order, but I will adjust the postage cost when the order is processed. ** Ever since armies began to wear uniforms, senior officers have set out to sartorially distinguish themselves from men they commanded. Inevitably this led to excess and puffery but, on the whole most generals and their staffs dressed simply and comfortably in the field. France was much the same as other countries in the profuse use of gold lace (usually of a floral design such as laurels or oak leaves) and by the Napoleonic Wars uniforms reached their zenith. However, by the end of the nineteenth century, despite a preponderance of gold lace, General Officers were wearing simpler attire. Lienhart and Humbert included an important study of the uniforms of General and staff officers in their 1904 work and it is reproduced here with all the minutia and detail provided. As with all Uniformology books, an informative text accompanies the plates. This book has 34 plates with notes on the plates and uniforms.  As New

French Revolutionary Infantry 1789-1802
Crowdy, Terry
ISBN: 9781841766607
Osprey Pub Co  2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, MAA403. The years immediately following the French Revolution of 1789 saw an extraordinary transformation of the French army. From a distrusted instrument of the feudal power of the king and nobility, it became the symbol of liberty and citizenship. The transition was complex and painful, as the remnants of the old professional army were joined by a flood of civilian volunteers and conscripts, of whom even the best were short of everything except republican fervour. This book describes the stages of the rebirth that produced an army capable of beating off half the monarchies of Europe, thus laying the foundations for Napoleon's unique victories ten years later.  As New
