One of the major publishing successes of the last decade was the publication of the two volumes of Napoleonic Uniforms by John Elting with plates by Herbert Knotel. Now two more new and very handsome volumes are to be published of Napoleonic Uniforms.

No other period of history has produced such magnificent uniforms as those worn by soldiers involved in the Napoleonic Wars. This superb two-volume set depicts in magnificent colour the uniforms of more than 30 major and minor European states.

Herbert Knotel's plates, recognised by uniformologists as being amongst the best and most accurate, fully capture all the beauty, verve and swagger of this colourftil episode in military history. This entirely new superb two-volume set, Napoleonic Uniforms: Vassels and Enemies, depicts in magnificent colour more than five hundred plates, each with an authoritative caption by Colonel John R.
