This superb and comprehensive book details the foreign units which formed such an important part of Napoleon's forces. It examines each non-French unit in turn, giving an overview of the unit's origins, its organizational and combat history, its uniforms and standards, and details of the unit's eventual fate. Colorful accounts, taken from contemporary reports and memoirs, emphasize the qualities of the unit and throw light on what life was like for many of the foreign soldiers recruited into the Grande Armee.

About Guy Dempsey

Guy Dempsey is a banking lawyer by profession, but his avocation is the use of primary sources for the study of Napoleonic military history. Albuera 1811 is his fourth book and is the product of over two decades of research spanning numerous countries. He has also written numerous articles on First Empire topics.

As the subjects of his previous Napoleonic books suggest, Guy prefers to explore less familiar First Empire territory. Guy has an abiding interest in the military uniforms of the period and considers his ultimate goal to be the compilation of a definitive list of first-hand sources for research in that area.

Guy lives near New York City with his wife and three daughters.
