"The Guard Attacks!”. The Imperial Guard, this glorious phalange, the fruit of the Emperor Napoleon's greatest attention, was almost an army within the "Grande Armée”. This study of the Guard's organisation, uniforms and equipment is fully comprehensive.

Vol. I: Discover the uniforms, equipment and weaponry of the Old Guard, often the last resort to be thrown into battle at the decisive moment. The illustrator and researcher, André Jouineau presents here a fully comprehensive overview of all aspects, regiments, etc. of the French Imperial Guard.

Vol. II Continues where vol. I ended with a wealth of images to conclude this fully comprehensive overview of the Imperial Guard.


Superb quality, mindblowing content and great value for money!

If you are seeking uniform information on the infantry of the Imperial Guard for painting either wargame figures or larger scale display models you really need look no further.
Miniature Wargames - Arthur Harman

For the modeller this really has a wealth of ideal references and I am sure it will be of interest to the wargamer, Napoleonic Wars historian and re-enactor alike. The artwork which fills this book is a joy to see, and I would say a pleasure to look through simply from the artistic point of view. If this is book 1, covering the Foot Soldiers, we evidently have more books to look forward to as well for the future.
