Osprey Men-at-Arms 405 : Napoleon's Carabiniers

Only two privileged regiments of Carabiniers survived the French Revolution with their elite status intact. They covered themselves with glory at Austerlitz, Friedland, Ratisbonne and Wagram, where their bloody losses shocked Napoleon into ordering them new helmets and cuirasses. Reformed after near annihilation in Russia in 1812, they fought at Leipzig and in many actions of the 1814 French campaign, and made one of the final charges at Waterloo. Illustrated with rare early prints and meticulous colour reconstructions, this book details their story, and their unique uniforms, from surviving period documents. Text by Ronald Pawly with illustrations by Patrice Courcelle.
