Does anyone know if General Saint-Chamans' memoirs has ever been published in English?

The original in French (for free):



ADC of Marshal Soult between 1804 and 1811. Promoted to Sous-lieutenant in 1804, lieutenant in february of 1805, Captain in december of 1805, Chef d'escadron in 1807 and Colonel in 1811. Colonel of the 8th Chasseurs Cheval in october of 1811. Colonel and commanding officer of the 7th Chasseurs Cheval in february of 1812. Saint-Chamans lead the 7th Chasseurs Cheval during the Russian Campaign. He commanded the 7th throughout the campaign of 1813 in Germany. He was wounded and captured at the Battle of Leipzig (thus ending his military service for the French Empire).

He was wounded four times, in four different occasions… In 1807, 1812 and two times in 1813.

Saint-Chamans was made Chevalier of the French Empire in 1809 and Baron of the Empire in 1813.

Colonel Saint-Chamans, commander of the 7th Chasseurs Cheval, in 1812… Click on the image to enlarge it: link

Not that I have ever seen. To be fair, there are tons of such memoirs untranslated.
