Napoleonic Infantry: Napoleonic Weapons and Warfare/Philip Haythornthwaite. Cassell & Co. Hardcover. First edition 2001. Out of print. Condition: As new. ISBN 0304355097
Tracing the role and performance of the infantry in Napoleonic warfare through contemporary sources, this book looks toward what actually happened in the battles of the period, compared to what should have occurred if regulations had been followed. Supported by over 100 period illustrations, it examines the infantry’s weapons, the use of the musket, bayonet, pike and sword, and the manner in which they were used in attack and defence.
