‘The Guard Gives!’ The Imperial Guard, this glorious phalanx, the fruit of all the attention of the Emperor Napoleon I, forms a small army in the Grande Armée. This study of its organization, like that of its uniforms and its equipment, is here completed to the finest degree. Volume 2 explores the centaurs of the Cavalry of the Guard. This practical, small, precise, clear, logical and visual tool, a true vade mecum for amateurs of imperial history, is intended for enthusiasts of imperial history and figures. This book is the new version that has been completely redesigned, revised, amended and widely expanded – it contains nearly 50% new characters from the book published several years ago. On 176 pages, nearly a thousand drawings develop the purpose of these two specialists of the period. In Volume 2 André Jouineau and Jean-Marie Mongin present the general colonels, horse hunters, Mamelukes, dragons, grenadiers on horseback, lancers, tartars, guides, artillery train, and other artillerymen on horseback. In 176 pages there are nearly 1,000 drawings illustrating the centaurs of the Guard.
