Book Description HERISSEY, 2003. Couverture rigide. Condition: Neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Neuf. La Garde a écrit un grand nombre des plus belles pages de l'histoire du 1er Empire. C'est le 29 juillet 1804 que Napoléon l'a créée. Il voulait une armée d'élite, il l'eut. En 1809, la distinction est faite entre Vieille et Jeune Garde. Les premiers conservant leur rôle de troupe d'élite, les seconds formant essentiellement un corps de réserve. On la retrouve sur tous les champs de bataille. En Russie, ils partirent 30 000, et il n'en revint que 500 ! Sa dernière page de gloire fut bien évidemment à Waterloo, sous les ordres de Cambronne : " La Garde meurt et ne se rend pas ". Elle rassemble des troupes à pied ou à cheval, mais aussi des marins. Ils sont Français, Hollandais, Italiens, Lithuaniens, Polonais ou Mamelucks. Après la Cavalerie, mais avant la Garde à Cheval, ce volume consacré à la Garde à pied, est le deuxième d'une série de cinq ouvrages qui nous permettent de découvrir Charmy. Cette œuvre, Splendeur des Uniformes de Napoléon, est une contribution, ô combien précieuse, au souvenir de la Grande Année. Book Description The plates in this book effectively reproduce 1300 color gouaches of the uniforms of Napoleon's Guard ? Pied.
