Osprey Warrior 77 : French Soldier in Egypt 1798-1801 : The Army of the Orient

Napoleon's Army of the Orient dramatic experiences in Egypt and the Holy Land are chronicled here. The fighting of the Mamelukes and Turks are covered in depth, detailing desert combat, siege warfare, cavalry skirmishes and the suppression of uprisings. This book examines the French treatment of prisoners as well as the fate of captured Frenchmen, and describes caring for the wounded, outbreaks of bubonic plague, and the terrible retreat from Acre in 1799, in accounts by the men who were there. The experiences of infantry, cavalry and sea soldiers of Napoleon's Army of the Orient are brought vividly back to life. Text by Terry Crowdy with illustrations by Christa Hook.
