        I just used the free option. You have to wait about 35 seconds and then press the download button. Takes a minute or 2 with a high speed connection.

        Don't even try it with dial-up!

        Hope this helps.

          The Imperial Guard and Polish Nationalism: 1812-1814
          by Paul Dawson

          The squadron of Lithuanian Tartars was created at Vilna on October 8, 1812 to be raised, interestingly enough, from the Moslem descendants of Genghis Khan who had settled in Lithuania during the Middle Ages. The idea for the unit was proposed in July of that year to one of the Emperor's aides-de-camp, General Count Van Hogendorp, then Govemor-General of the Grand Duchy. Major Mustapha Mura Achrnatowicz, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Polish cavalry, actually suggested the idea and offered to raise the unit if it were incorporated into Napoleon's Imperial Guard.
          Napoleon appointed Major Achrnatowicz as the chef d 'escadron, and on 24 August 1812 charged him with raising a regiment. But due to the lack of patriotic vigour among Lithuanians, and the already disastrous consequences of the campaign, the major was only able to raise a squadron.
          On 22 March 1813, Marshal Bessieres incorporated the squadron of the Lithuanian Tartars, now reduced to 50 men and 3 officers, into the debris of the 3rd Regiment of Lancers of the Guard. At the same time, the 3rd Guard Light Horse was disbanded and the remnants became the 7th Squadron of the famous 1ere Chevaulegers Lanciers Polonais of a Napoleon's Imperial Guard. The Tartars became the 15th Company (French squadrons consisted of a 2 companies), but on the 9 December 1813 it was attached to form the new 3rd Eclaireurs (Scouts) Regiment.
          The strength of the Tartar squadron was recorded at 24 men on June 22, and at 26 Tartars on July 11, of which 6 still wore the old uniforms.Lithuanian Military under Napoleon in 1812

                      • Thanks Zouave and repd. Tartar unit's were also in army of the Commonwealth of Poland and Lithuania XVII-XVIII cent. caling lipki/lipkowie. They were muslims but very loyal to the Crown.
                        In Napoleon's army they were somewhat unusual and oriental as Mameluks.

                          I am also having a problem, PDF reader says the files are corrupt, I'm using Adobe Reader 9, and I get a similar message with the Rapid Share Files, Link message reads 'File not found'.

                          Any help would be appreciated.

                          • When that happens it means they are gone due to copyright issues.

                            • I dont' think that copyright is the reason, other members are posting saying what great pictures they are.

                              I'm refering to the posts on P15 & 16.
