Napoleonic Cavalry (Napoleonic Weapons and Warfare)/Philip J Haythornthwaite. Cassell. Hardcover. First edition 2001. Out of print. Condition: As new. ISBN 0304355089
Tracing the role and performance of the cavalry in Napoleonic warfare through contemporary sources, this book looks toward what actually happened in the battles of the period, rather than what should have occurred, according to the regulations. Incorporating first hand accounts and historic illustrations, it examines the cavalry’s weapons, particularly the carbines and swords, and the manner in which they were used in attack and defence.
