Osprey Men-at-Arms 44 : Napoleon's German Allies (1) : Westfalia and Kleve-Berg

Austria's defeat at the battle of Hohenkinden, on 3 December 1800, created a power vacuum in the area now known as Germany, and Napoleon lost little time in transforming this zone into a pro-French 'cordon sanitaire', creating as he did so the Duchy of Berg, which he later united with Kleve. Like Kleve-Berg, Westfalia was also ruled entirely according to French law, and both provided troops for the French Emperor. Otto von Pivka explores the campaigns, uniforms, flags and standards in this first of two books concerning Napoleon's German allies. The service history of both armies is described in Pivka's absorbing and entertaining style. Contemporary illustrations and modern photographs detail uniforms and equipment, together with eight full page colour plates by Rick Scollins, and extensive commentaries.
