    As a new member you will need to accrue a number of posts before you can post an image. I think the number is between 5 and 10. After that you can post as many as you like, whenever you like but the maximum images per post is 12 (including emoticons)

    You could post individual details of the uniform by describing each part in words over a number of posts until you are able to post the image.

    Try to find these books:

    The Army of the French Revolution, from Citizen-Soldiers to Instrument of Power, transl. by R. R. Palmer (Princeton University Press, 1988);

    Paddy Griffith, The Art of War of Revolutionary France, 1789-1802 (London: Greenhill Books, 1998);

    Rafe Blaufarb, The French Army 1750-1820: careers, talent, merit (Manchester University Press, 2002),

    Same uniform as any infantry bataillon at the same period I guess.
    Napoleon created the mountain corps (with specific uniforms) in 1809.

    If you read french:

    "Campagne dans les Alpes pendant la Révolution":


    http://archive.org/stream/campagnesd...2kreb_djvu.txt

    The General Dumas did great work for the Army of the Alpes:

    jeunes gens de la première réquisition, l'armée des Alpes
    conservait, à la fin de décembre 1793, un effectif de
    47,000 hommes, dont le plus grand nombre, à peine armé,
    n'était ni instruit, ni habillé, ni équipé. De cette masse de
    citoyens plus ou moins enthousiastes, conduits par des
    officiers absolument ignorants du métier militaire, il fallait
    faire des soldats. Telle était la tâche ardue qui s'imposait
    au général Dumas, au moment où il arrivait à Grenoble,
    le 21 janvier 1794 1 . Quelques jours après, il est rejoint par
    le représentant du peuple Gaston, envoyé de l'armée des
    Pyrénées-Orientales à celle des Alpes, à la place de son
    collègue Fabre, décédé 2 . Peu à peu ces deux hommes
    actifs et énergiques remettent de l'ordre dans les corps
    de troupes et les différents services 3 .

    [...]
    1794 :le général Sarret avait donné de minutieuses instructions, en vue d'attirer
    l'attention de l'ennemi par une démonstration sur le front
    des retranchements du grand mont Cenis, tandis que deux
    détachements, dirigés sur les deux flancs, prendraient à
    revers leurs défenseurs, ainsi que ceux du petit mont
    Cenis et se réuniraient vers Grand'Croix, au-delà du lac 3 .
    Dès la fin de mars, les troupes étaient prêtes, pourvues de
    chaussons de laine et de crampons en fer


    [...]
    général Dumas, les 3, 12, 25 et 27 mars. — Les troupes ne doivent porter les souliers que
    pour exécuter des opérations; en garnison, elles auront des sabots.

    [...]
    En outre, les officiers
    et soldats étaient munis d'une sorte de guide des Alpes, que le général Dumas avait fait
    extraire d'un mémoire très complet rédigé par le maréchal de camp de la Blottière, qui
    avait fait, comme ingénieur, les campagnes des guerres pour la Ligue d'Augsbourg et la
    Succession d'Espagne.
    According to his famous son:

    http://www.dumaspere.com/pages/bibli...p?lid=m3&cid=4

    [...] des hommes habitués depuis un an à cette guerre de montagnes et qui n'avaient jamais reculé que devant l'impossible ; maintenant, c'était l'impossible qu'il fallait vaincre : il fallait que les soldats passassent là où jamais montagnard n'avait passé ; il fallait que le pied de l'homme foulât une neige qui ne connaissait encore que le sabot du chamois ou la serre de l'aigle.
    Mon père fit faire trois mille crampons de fer qu'il distribua à ses soldats et avec lesquels ils s'étudièrent à passer dans les endroits les plus difficiles.

    I've also read this particular note: << the general Dumas had the idea to equip with crampons and woody soles the soldiers of year II, by creating the unit of the “chasseurs de la montagne” >>
    Is it true? where can I find some other informations?
    Thanks!

    Goodmorning, is there someone who knows somthing about the uniform of the unit named "Chasseurs des Alps"? it would be part of the french "Army of the Alps" (Armée des Alpes) during revolutionary period (1792-1797). I can't find anything about their uniform, I only heard they worn a green habit and maybe a "mirliton" hat.
    Thank you everybody for any information!
    BR Simone

    I their time the Funken books were the dog's danglies for kids painting their first Napoleonic figures. These days they're a bit dated, but no worse than some of the current Osprey guides.
