Book Title :Austrian Specialist Troops of the Napoleonic Wars (Men-at-Arms)
In the later 18th century the Austrian artillery had been the finest in Europe, and was held up as an example to the world. After the appointment of Prince Liechtenstein as DirectorGeneral of Artillery in 1744, he established an artillery school at Budweis and redesigned the ordnance to produce lighter and more manoeuvrable guns. Philip Haythornwaite's fascinating text examines the famed Austrian artillery and other specialist troops of the Napoleonic Wars, examining their organisation and uniforms in a volume complete with a wealth of accompanying illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Bryan Fosten.
