French & Allied Cavalry Outposts

Two Classic Treatises by Leading Commanders of Cavalry During the Napoleonic Wars-Cavalry Outpost Duties by F. de Br

by F De Brack
Publication Date: 10/12/2013
The horse soldier at war in the Napoleonic Age This unique two-in-one Leonaur volume, enhanced by illustrations depicting the uniforms of the period, has been created for good value and will be fascinating to all students of tactics in the Napoleonic Wars. It focuses on the organisation and practices in the field of European cavalry of the early nineteenth century. Each author considers the mounted arm from the perspective of his own army and enables easy comparisons to be made between the activities and methods of opposing forces. Antoine de Brack's work is well known and highly regarded. De Brack was the consummate cavalryman serving Napoleon and, on the restoration of the monarchy, in the French army of the Bourbons. A highly experienced officer, de Brack served in the hussars and as one of the famous 'Red Lancers' of the Imperial Guard on many campaigns including at Waterloo; he later became the commander of the renowned French Army school of cavalry at Saumur. Frederick von Arentschildt's was Lt. Colonel of the First Regiment of Hussars of the King's German Legion and his name will be familiar to students of Wellington's campaigns in the Iberian peninsula. At a time when British cavalry was considered to be an unreliable and undisciplined part of the army, often unmanageable on the field of battle, Arentschildt's Hanoverian cavalrymen earned a high reputation for their discipline, horse-husbandry and effectiveness. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
