… de Leuchtenberg et les Campagnes Nepoléoniennes de 1809 et de 1812.

"This book explores the relationship between the Prince Eugène and Albrecht Adam, official painter to his court, and thanks to over four hundred colour illustrations provides a vivid account. The battle scenes of Leuchtenberg (check this!!!) are the focal point of the book, which details historical and geographical context of the works, as well as information on the battle tactics, the uniforms and the various weapons used in combat. The text also relies on contemporary accounts and memoirs to explain and assess the importance of Adam's work."

I have this book. It is an interesting tale but the real value is the sumptuous illustrations. Assuming they are based upon actual observation they are a great source for a reality check on uniforms and equipment, especially the colours.

There are still copies available at the (German) editor of this very valuable book (as Artileryman mentioned the illustrations are spectacular and mostly commented by experts) at link

All the best
