Austrian Napoleonic Artillery 1792-1815 by Dave Hollins

Book Description

The Austrian artillery of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars was a creation of the renowned Lichtenstein system of the early 1750s. This weight system produced a series of weapons of 3-, 6- and 12-pdr. calibre along with 7- and 10-pdr. Howitzers. In the 1780s they were joined by cavalry artillery guns with their 'Wurst' seats. In 1811 Austria also began the establishment of rocket troops based upon the British invention, whilst their heavy and siege pieces throughout the period remained the 12-, 18- and 24-pdrs. This title by David Hollins describes this system as well as its operational use throughout the period.

Austrian Commanders of the Napoleonic Wars by Dave Hollins Austrian Commanders of the Napoleonic Wars, Paperback (January 2004)

The Austrian Army fought Napoleon in more major campaigns and battles than any other, either alone or as part of successive Allied coalitions. This book examines the multi-national character of the army - including many French, German, Yugoslavian, Hungarian and even Anglo-Irish exiles.

Hungarian Hussar 1756-1815 by Dave Hollins Hungarian Hussar 1756-1815, Paperback (November 2003)

Hungary was the home of the elite Hussar. This work covers a period during which the Hussars were increasingly regulated within the Hapsburg army, and developments took place in clothing, weaponry and equipment, notably the introduction of short carbines and rifles.

Marengo, 1800 by Dave Hollins Marengo, 1800, Paperback (May 2000)

The outcome of Marengo could have been very different. With the French in retreat, the Austrian commander left the field believing he had won. The arrival of Desaix's Division led by Kellerman's cavalry threw the Austrians into confusion. The campaign in analysed in detail in this volume.
