    Best Uniform

    Who would you consider were the smartest looking troops of the Napoleonic wars? would it be the French Imperial guard grenadier, the Prussian garde du corps, the Russian lifeguards, the 95th rifles or the Polish lancers, or any other unit of that period. Don't forget they would have looked a bit different when on campaign.

Currently a bit of a backlog of orders as they have just reorganised their on-line shop.

    Book is in both French and German, but the plates are absolutely superb.

    ZVAB at https://www.zvab.com/buch-suchen/tit...or/petitmermet have a copy from Euros 112.
    Thanks all the same but on reflection I wasn't really all that keen on purchasing a copy.

    Ah! how could you not follow a general who dresses thus?

    Napoleon is a torrent which as yet we are unable to stem. Moscow will be the sponge that will suck him dry.

    Caption: Canadian Voltigeurs on the march in 1813

    The companies of the Provincial Corps of Light Infantry (better known as the 'Canadian Voltigeurs') would have looked like this when marching south from Montreal in October of 1813 to take up defensive positions at Châteauguay. Some of the men wear their greatcoats, while others have only their grey uniform coats. At left is an Amerindian scout - possibly a Mohawk from Kanesatake or Kahnawake near Montreal. Reconstruction by Gerald A. Embleton. (Parks Canada)

    I would have to say the french Chasseurs à Cheval look really nice. Other than that the French Imperial Guard and the 95th rifles look very smart.

    This may have been posted before, but I don't care and I think it brings quite a difference to all the other cavalry uniforms that have been posted and it's at a high resolution.

    I think the french hussars, carabiniers, British 95th rifles and Prussian jaegers look the best in my opinion.
