The Chasseurs à Cheval de la Garde Impériale was the Emperor's habitual escort and a valuable cavalry reserve in battle. It was a unit formed of light cavalrymen of proven courage but also of outstanding moral fibre who had to serve as an example to the rest of the army. This books recounts the history of this legendary unit – a unit whose antecedents are traced back to the first battles won by Napoleon in Italy and to the burning sands of the Egyptian desert. Indeed, a unit that paid the price demanded by glory and the ignominy of war, with its blood spilled on the plateaus of Austerlitz, the frozen countryside of Prussia and on the streets of Madrid, and many other places etched in the memory of those far off times.
