This second volume deals with the chasseurs a cheval, Mameluke, grenadiers and dragoons - the cavaliers of 'the old guard of Emperor Napoleon I'. Their rich and various uniforms, their flags, insignia and equipment are all recreated in over 50 pages of full colour plates using the very latest computer graphic technology.
