Description - Hungarian Hussar 1756-1815 by Dave Hollins

Hungary was the home of the elite Hussar. These skilled, daring and flamboyant light cavalrymen were first drawn for Hapsburg service from what is now northern Croatia, Serbia, Slovakia and Hungary in the late 17th century. It was not long before most nations in Europe adopted both Hussar formations, uniform and equipment, notably France, Britain and Prussia. This title covers a dynamic and glamorous 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. Battlefield tactics, campaign life, and famous episodes of derring-do are also given full treatment, making this a packed, colourful and fascinating study of the Hungarian Hussar.
