MONGIN Jean-Marie, Chasseurs à cheval, volume 3 : 1810-1815

From the publisher:
"This third part illustrates the last years of the Empire; dark years which will see our "Chasseurs" being gobbled up during the Russian disaster. Like a lot of regiments, the Chasseurs A Cheval were swallowed up in the Russian disaster. Phantom regiments were reformed with considerable difficulty in 1813 and 1814. During the First Restoration, 15 regiments were formed from the debris of the battles in Prussia and in France, fifteen regiments which then took part in the Belgian Campaign and its epilogue at Waterloo. King Louis VXIII dismissed these fifteen regiments on 16 July 1815, but it wasn't until the...18th that the Chasseurs a Cheval reappeared in the Royal Army!
During this period there was obviously a whole series of uniform changes, the most important of which are outlined below."
