Napoleon's Mounted Chasseurs of the Guard


This is a concise history of the hand-picked elite cavalry guard that served as Napoleon's close personal escort and were committed to the most dangerous areas of combat on the battlefield. Formed from his original escort of 'Guides' and the 'Consular Guard' in 1799, the Mounted Chasseurs were a personal favourite of Napoleon's - who wore their uniform on campaign. Ronald Pawly's unique research in regimental archives provides unprecedented detail on individual soldiers and officers. With the Guard's colourful uniforms recreated in dazzling full colour artwork and accounts of their actions at the most critical Napoleonic battles, this is a critical insight into the soldiers who comprised an elite unit whose fighting prowess and devotion to their emperor has become legendary.
