Osprey Men-at-Arms 429 : Napoleon's Mamelukes

The most exotic of all the troops of Napoleon's Imperial Guard were undoubtedly the Mamelukes. They were the bodyguard of Oriental cavalry which followed him home after the Egyptian expedition of 1798-1801, and remained with his Mounted Chasseurs regiment throughout the First Empire. For the first time in English, this book tells the Mamelukes' story, from Austerlitz to Waterloo. Quoting from the original nominal rolls and battle casualty returns, the author brings individual members of this extraordinary unit to life. His text is illustrated with rare early engravings and paintings, and the full-colour plates show the development of the unit's romantic Turkish uniforms. Text by Ronald Pawly with illustrations by Patrice Courcelle.
