Description

From the Liebfahne and Ordinärfahne of Austria, to the eagle and wreath of Russia, the flags of the Napoleonic Wars comprised a range of designs and colors. The second in a series of three volumes focusing on flags of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), this book examines the patterns, colors and guidons of Austria, Britain, Prussia and Russia, offering a rare glimpse into an often-overlooked subject in Napoleonic history. The text is packed with illustrations throughout, including color plates, sketches and tables detailing flag variants, patterns and inspection colors.
