Napoleon's Balkan Troops by Vladimir Brnardic
Book DescriptionAfter defeating Austria at Austerlitz in 1805, Napoleon took over the territory then called 'Illyria' in western Croatia, but had to fight to occupy it in 1806-07. After defeat in 1809, Austria ceded more Balkan territories to the French Empire, but invaded and liberated these territories in 1814. This title examines the many former Austrian regiments from the areas that were taken into the French forces, for instance, Illyrian Chasseurs, Croatian and Dalmatian Regiments. Examined are the troops' uniform, weapons and organisation, all illustrated with detailed, colour artwork.
