Product Description: When you tackle the French artillery of the First Empire you must always take into account descriptions of the artillery of the Ancien Régime and the Revolution in detail, which is what this book does. The term “artillery” in the Middle Ages designated “all the machines the army uses”. So, originally, the artillery corps comprised officers who created, used and maintained these machines. It took several centuries and a lot of ups and downs before the artillery was effectively organized: this was Jean-BaptisteVaquette de Gribeauval’s vocation. Mr de Gribeauval, the Inspector of Artillery, set up this organization gradually over more than thirty years, and it remained in force, to a greater or lesser extent, until 1825and this is the subject of this book. All the artillery pieces, the materiel used by the Foot and Horse Artillery at the end of the Ancien Regime, during the Revolution and the First Empire, as well as the Pontoneers, the permanent artillery (l’artilleriesédentaire) of the Coastguard Artillery, these all too often forgotten heroes of the Napoleonic era, are presented in the hundreds of profiles and silhouettes shown in this book…Two chapters are given over to the artillery trains and teams which, during the First Empire, reach the age of maturity, the age of regulations. This book is the revised and improved new version of the books published some time ago by the same authors and enthusiasts who, in 176 pages, develop their ideas about the period in almost a thousand drawings.
