Owing to the heavy casualties suffered by the Carabiniers in the 1809 campaign, the Emperor decreed that they should be similarly equipped to the Cuirassiers, making them together the only armoured troops in the Grande Armee. This book examines the uniforms and equipment of both corps during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), in a text complemented throughout by numerous illustrations and diagrams, including eight full page colour plates.
