In the battles of Jena and Auerstadt (1806), where the Prussians were crushed by Napoleon, the Saxons excelled beyond comparison. Amidst the defeat and confusion, they withdrew in full control, with regular pace and band playing, stopping to engage whenever the enemy grew too close. Recognizing the martial value of such troops, Napoleon swiftly took steps to assure a military alliance. In this absorbing addition to the Men-at-Arms series, Otto von Pivka explores the organization, campaign history and uniforms of Napoleon's formidable Saxon allies, with numerous illustrations and eight superb full page color plates by Richard Hook."
