Johnson, David:
Napoleon's Cavalry and its Leaders - hardcover

1978, ISBN: 9780841903906

ID: 553928726

Holmes & Meier 1978, NY, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, 191 pp, 20 illus and maps, extensive bibliog,. index. Well written overall history of the formations, units, leaders, men, weapons and tactics of the many varied cavalry regiments of the French Army under Napoleon I. Drawing on extensive French sources, the author has produced a good history 1796 to 1815. Dressed in outrageously romantic uniforms, led by a flamboyant clique of aristocrats and extroopers, Napoleon's cavalry had a picturesque quality that belied its ruthless methods and tremendous service record. Nothing quite like its veterans had ever been seen before, for not even a horse soldier of Imperial Rome could claim to have fought in Austria, Germany, Egypt, Italy, Poland, Belgium and Spain. Alongside these battle-scarred veterans rode inexperienced young conscripts who never acquired their older comrades' lust for victory, though they came to share their philosophy. `One day we were up,' as SubLieutenant Rilliet of the 1st Cuirassiers put it, `and the next day we were down.' The force to which they belonged was far from perfect. The constant campaigning bred drunkenness and brutality, the levelling processes of the Revolution had already bred indiscipline. On a score of battlefields, nevertheless, Napoleon's cavalrymen succeeded in rising above their faults, due largely to the confidence which they placed in the most brilliant group of horse generals ever contained in one European army: generals like the handsome Lasalle, who said that no French hussar ought to live beyond the age of 30; Marulaz, who had 26 horses killed under him; Murat, the inn-keeper's son who became a king. In this fascinating account of the most remarkable cavalry force in history, David Johnson illuminates the character of its soldiers and their leaders, the reasons for its triumphs, and the facts of its destruction by drawing heavily on material largely unknown to English-speaking readers. , New York: Holmes & Meier Pub, 1978. 1st. Hardcover. Book fine, Dust jacket fine.. 192 pages, 20 illustrations, 2 diagrams, and 1 map. The dust jacket is price clipped., Holmes & Meier Pub, 1978
