This superb and comprehensive book details the combat histories of the individual regiments which formed Napoleon’s vaunted Grande Armée.

Napoleon’s Regiments examines each unit in turn, giving an overview of the unit’s origin’s, its organisational history, battle honours born on all colours and standards, details of the unit’s eventual fate after Napoleon’s abdication in 1815 and a complete listing of its officer casualties at all the major Napoleonic battles. Also included are 200 biographies of regimental officers, giving a unique insight into the careers of these neglected figures during the Napoleonic conflict.

Digby Smith, a respected Napoleonic historian, details the regiments of the Imperial Guard, the line infantry, the cavalry, auxiliary troops, foreign and colonial troops, artillery, naval artillery and naval troops. He covers the full array of units from the legendary Grenadiers of the Old Guard to the indispensable foot artillery and the unusual Portuguese Legion. Also included are details of French naval losses.

With a superb Introduction, charting the development of the French Army in the Revolutionary period, and detailed appendices, this is the best single-volume study of the Napoleonic army at war and a vital reference work on the troops that conquered Europe.
