Item description for FRENCH HUSSARS VOL 3:: From the 9th to the 14th Regiment, 1804-1818 (Officers and Soldiers) by Andre Jouineau & Alan McKay...
The First Empire is responsible for giving us the most lasting picture we have of the Hussars. This volume deals with the Hussars (from the 9th to the 14th Regiment) for the period 1804-1812. There is a chapter given over to the 1812 Regulations which fixed the broad outlines and the 6 regiments are analyzed, together with the uniforms worn between 1812 and 1818.Andre' Jouineau, figurines maker and collector, works with Histoire and Collections for more than 16 years. His uniforms plates, which have been fully carried out using data processing, have made him a pioneer in this field. He is the illustrator of the magazine Figurines and books such as Jena-Auerstaedt or Les Chasseurs d'Afrique. Jean-Marie Mongin, previous chief editor of Uniformes and Tradition Magazine, puts all his knowledge in military history writing these drawing texts and captions. Both are also authors of French Hussars (Vol. 1 and 2), American Civil War (Vol. 1 and 2), and French Imperial Guard (Vol. 1, 2, 3 and 4) stemming from the same series. Unifom lovers, history and strategy fanatics as well as figurines makers.

Reviews - What do customers think about FRENCH HUSSARS VOL 3:: From the 9th to the 14th Regiment, 1804-1818 (Officers and Soldiers)?
Excellent series on Napoleonic French Hussar uniforms May 27, 2008
These series of 3 booklets are beautifully illustrated. All three volumes follow the course of evolution of the various Hussar units and their corresponding uniform changes throughout the period under review. You must get all three volumes to obtain the full picture. The artist Andre Jouineau must be lauded for codifying a mass of uniform details gleaned mainly from French tomes and made wholly intelligible to the English speaking audience. He has meticulously sourced from primary and secondary sources to clarify ambiguities in the drawings and where necessary, he has cited his sources to back up his assumptions. A terrific achievement and a great boon to uniformologists.
