Swiss Regiments in French Service


The Swiss troops in Napoleon's army were some of the most stable, courageous and disciplined of the Grand Armee.  The four Swiss Regiments, and the Neuchatel and Valois troops saw service in every theatre of war during the Napoleonic Wars and gained a reputation as being troops of the finest quality.

First published in 1974, this title has been out of print since 1984.  This e-book edition has been reworked and updated with new research which was not available when the book was last revised.  The new edition concentrates on the organisation and uniforms of the Swiss soldiers who served France during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.  Many of the original colour illustrations which were never used in the earlier versions have been included as well as brand new artwork and illustrations from contemporary and authoritive sources.
