With this last volume, pontoneers, permanent gunners or Coastguards gunners, too often left in shadow - as the materials and the guns which they serve and operate - occupy the center stage.

A chapter is dedicated to the Team Train which, although not being a part of the artillery, deserves to appear in this vast panorama of the "Armes savantes”. This was the organization of Mr de Gribeauval, the Inspector of Artillery, set up slowly over nearly thirty years and which remained more or less as it was until 1825 and which is the object of these three volumes.


Of special interest to figure modelers who want to get their figures painted correctly for a specific units and time and in this instance, some special equipment to accompany them. The series is a first class reference on France in the Napoleonic era
