Napoleonic armies went into battle resplendent in brilliantly coloured uniforms and the troops of imperial France dazzled Europe with their elegant and colourful turnout. In 1812 the Emperor commissioned Vernet, a leading military artist, to paint the new regulation dress as a standard to be provided to military tailors. This book contains a selection of these detailed and striking images, showing the full range of French Army units from Cavalry, Infantry and Artillery, to Engineers and Support Troops, and provides a detailed introduction placing the regulations in context
