Osprey Men-at-Arms 77 : Flags of the Napoleonic Wars (1) : Colours, Standards and Guidons of France and her Allies

In the summer of 1804, the eagle was chosen as the symbol of the French Army by Napoleon himself, in preference to the ancient Gallic symbol of a cockerel. The Emperor's sculptor, Chaudet, made the original model, and from this were cast bronze copies in the workshop of Thomire, which would be proudly borne into battle by many a French regiment. Terence Wise explores in depth the flags, colours and guidons of the Napoleonic wars, concentrating on France and her allies, and covering every faction from Baden to Würzburg. Packed with first class illustrations throughout, plus eight superb full page colour plates by Guigo Rosignoli together with extensive commentaries.
