  • The Russian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    During the Napoleonic era, Russia possessed a vast force of cavalry, forming a greater percentage than that of most European armies. This stemmed partly from their service against the Turks, who had huge numbers of troops, and partly from the fact that much Russian terrain was suitable for the manoeuvre of large bodies of cavalry. This companion volume... more...

  • Napoleon's Line Infantryby Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Napoleon's line infantry was founded upon that of the Ancien Régime. A total re-organisation began on 1 January 1791 with the abolition of the old regimental titles, and over the next two years an increasing number of conscript and volunteer battalions were formed. Their quality varied from the proficiency of the early National Guard regiments to the... more...

  • Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (1)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The most implacable of Napoleon's continental enemies, at the outbreak of war Austria maintained a vast army, but one rooted firmly in the 18th century. Hampered by the inherent conservatism of the hierarchy, the Austrians had to fight the most modern army in Europe. Despite this the regulars, who were drawn from many territories under Austrian sway,... more...

  • Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Philip Haythornthwaite; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The mounted troops of the Hapsburg Empire comprised one of the most powerful forces of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). However, from the outset the cavalry's higher command was less capable than its infantry counterpart: appointments were influenced by nepotism and politics, which resulted in commands often being given to those who lacked experience.... more...

  • Prussian Line Infantry 1792-1815by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    At the beginning of this period, the battalions of the Prussian Line usually fought in a linear formation three ranks deep, overwhelming the enemy with fire before a well-timed bayonet attack. By the end, the preferred formation was eight to 12 ranks deep. The responsibility for conducting the fire-fight was now given to the skirmish elements and the... more...

  • Prussian Light Infantry 1792-1815by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    The Prussian light infantry branch was founded in the reign of Frederick the Great (1740-1786) and continued to develop from then onwards. It was the light troops of the Austrian army, the Croatian border soldiers, which so impressed Frederick in the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) that he considered it necessary to create an effective counter-force.... more...

  • The Hanoverian Army of the Napoleonic Warsby Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Of all the armies of the German States, that of Hanover remains of greatest interest to the British reader due to the close links between the crowns of the two states. Throughout the Napoleonic era Britain and Hanover had the same head of state, George III. Symbolic of their close relationship, the Hanoverian Army wore uniforms and used equipment largely... more...

  • Prussian Reserve, Militia & Irregular Troops 1806-15by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    Irregular, semi-regular and reserve formations comprised a substantial part of the armed forces at the disposal of the Prussian Army throughout the Napoleonic Wars, particularly during the campaigns of the Wars of Liberation, 1813-15. The scale of the uprising of 1813 required the mobilization of all available forces and the utilization of all available... more...

  • Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (2)by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    After Prussia's dismemberment a drastic re-organisation of the entire army was necessary, and the cavalry underwent this process with the rest. At the time of the mobilisation in 1813, the somewhat reduced mounted arm was supplemented by voluntary and militia formations; and once peace was established after the First Abdication, a further re-organisation... more...

  • Prussian Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars (1)by Peter Hofschroer; Bryan Fosten

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 13.95

    When Frederick II (later known as Frederick the Great) came to the throne in 1740, he had three advantages for which he owed thanks to his father: a modern, well-organised state; full coffers; and a properly trained and equipped army. Under a leader as renowned as Seydlitz, the Prussian cavalry achieved the nearest to a state of perfection that it... more...
