DAWSON Paul L., Au Galop! Horses and Riders of Napoleon's Army

<i> © Black Tent Publishing </i>

© Black Tent Publishing

Description: From the publishers:
Much has been written on Napoleon's armies and the battles and campaigns in which they fought. Attention has been paid to the tactics and organisation of the three arms that comprised the napoleonic French army, the infantry, artillery and cavalry. However, to date there has been no clear and concise study of the supply of horses to the french army. Making extensive use of primary sources, especially archive material, this study presents, for the first time, the way in which napoleon obtained horses for his army, the way they were fed, and crucially how the men and horses were trained.
