Osprey Men-at-Arms 299 : Austrian Auxiliary Troops 1792-1816

Until Jäger battalions were formed in 1808, Austria relied solely on the Grenzers and volunteer (Freiwillige) formations to supply light troops, most volunteer units being formed into the regular Light Battalions of 1798-1801. To release regular troops, Austria created militia for garrison duties and in 1808, introduced a conscript Landweher, although recruits were limited to the reliable nationalities of the western lands. Large numbers of these troops supported the regular forces from 1809 to 1815. The eastern provinces supplied the feudal Insurrections. Dave Hollins examines the history, organisation and uniforms of Austrian auxiliary troops from 1792-1816, covering the Grenzers; Freikorps; cavalry; Landwehr and the Insurrections, complemented by numerous photographs and illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Bill Younghusband.
