Elting, featuring the superb works of the famous illustrator Herbert Knotel. Now, in an unprecedented transatlantic co-operation, Greenhill Books in London and Casemate Publishing in the USA are together bringing these books back into print after some 14 years. This new edition, as before, will be sold as a two volume set. In addition, the new edition will be presented in a cloth bound slipcase. Pagination and an index have been added, significantly enhancing its reference value. Napoleonic Uniforms is the only reference work of its kind to depict accurately the entire Grande Arme'e in detail. It portrays the French armies as seen by their contemporaries, and combines authoritative text with lavish illustrations, enabling the reader to experience the spectacle first hand. Napoleonic Uniforms also depicts the various types of soldiers within the various regiments of the Grande Arme'e - officers, sergeants, color-bearers, bandsmen, drummers and trumpeters, privates and surgeons. In addition the volumes contain material on lesser-known formations such as the Army of Egypt (1798 - 1801), the pre-Revolutionary French Army, and Napoleon's police and internal security organizations. Nine hundred and eighteen original watercolors by Herbert Knotel, an internationally acclaimed authority on military uniforms, with a special talent for depicting men and horses in action, bring the nineteenth-century French soldier to life. Together with the late Colonel John R. Elting's definitive captions, they preserve a significant aspectof this famous era for historians, researchers, teachers, students, model makers, "uniformologists," and the general reader interested in this historical period. REVIEWS " Along with the striking artwork by Herbert Knotel, Elting's tome provides the background and history of each uniform of the various types of soldiers in the Grand Arme'e (who would have thought there could be so many?). Besides historians, toy soldier buffs will love this title. A stunner."9/15/07 Library Journal "This edition is quite stunning! From its gold embossed red cloth covers with stitched binding to its beribboned red slip case it is destined to be a collector's item very quickly!"R. Burnham, The Napoleonic Series, 09/2007 "A Major Upgrade of an Outstanding Work!...Anyone interested in Napoleon and/or military art in general will want a copy of this truly outstanding set. Knotel captured the soldiers in a unique and fascinating way that makes the viewer feel he is seeing them as they really were.
