  • One of the troubles with Osprey books, is that so often the book is centered around the illustrations of the uniforms. A resource for the diorama maker, and modeler, or wargamer who is painting a miniature army, not the historian.Here we have a mixture of very useful information for the historian and as always, illustrations that the painter would find useful also.The painter may even find that this is not what they need as the pictures are actual pieces from the period so much truer to reality [...]


  • This Osprey book is a welcome addition to anyone's Napoleonic Warfare bookshelf. Like all other titles in the Campaign Series it isn't meant to be a detailed analysis of all aspects of the battle, but is designed to be an excellent summation of the key points in the conflict.
