Reviews - What do customers think about Splendeur Des Uniformes De Napoleon: Cavalry?
Terrific picture book Jul 25, 2003
The high rating is for the rarity and number of the illustrations, many of which have never been reproduced before. Admittedly, the drawings may appear a little naive, but this adds to their visual appeal. Lots of unexpected uniform details are captured in these pictures. Truly a feast for the eyes even if you don't read French!
