This is a detailed and fascinating study of the history and personnel of a single unit of Napoleon’s Imperial Guard, 1810-1815 - the 2nd Light Horse Lancers, the legendary “Red Lancers”.

The Red Lancers’ part in the Napoleonic Wars is covered in detail from the 1812 Russian campaign; the brilliant defensive campaigns in Germany and France 1813-14; the fateful 100 days of 1815 and the final sunset at Waterloo.

Illustrated with many period paintings some previously unpublished and of international importance and detailed appendices on known members of the regiment - this is an impressive work of scholarship and is destined to become a standard reference for the collector and student of Napoleonic history.
