"The most complete history of the 1st Guard Lancers (Polish) in english or any other language

Richly illustrated with many pictures and sources never seen before, this is the complete history of the famed Polish lancers from their founding in 1806 as an honor guard for Napoleon, to one of the most famous and recognizable units of the Napoleonic Wars. With over 250 illustrations – most in color, this is a must have for students of history or people interested in the era."

Tango is that marvellous example of quantum uncertainty. Whether he is a particle or a wave function I do not know, but, like the electron that interferes with itself (I mean after passing through one or other or both slits!) he is able to appear in two different places simultaneously, yet it is the same post. Heisenberg and Schrodinger are proved right!

Sometimes … only sometimes … I would like to read also other types of comments on so many books / articles / figures that are dumped here … not only negative or reproachful … but …… c'est la vie … qu'est-ce qu'on va faire …? (smile)

Oh sure, but I do know what he means.

I do so wish we could get "added value" in comments about books, new figures (or even rules, which are beyond me). Not just "cool" or "rubbish".

If only folk would say what they liked and learnt from something, what shortcomings they noticed, any errors (which surely people cannot object to, unless to debate the facts in a friendly fashion)……. Suggestions for future efforts. A decent critical review that does actually take some effort.

This forum is getting a bit quiet and without Tango's multiple postings we would have little to read. Bless him, decoherence and quantum uncertainty I can live with (sorridere)

Thanks my friend for your kindly words…

I agree wholeheartedly with deadhead— Tango breaths life into this blog by introducing us to a myriad of new products, stories and discussions. The Miniatures Page would be MUCH diminished without his contributions.

"Sources documentaires concernant l'histoire du Régiment des Chevau- Légers de la Garde de Napoléon I" by Aleksander Rembowski 1899 is also an extremely useful document

WARNING on "Sources documentaires concernant l'histoire du Régiment des Chevau- Légers de la Garde de Napoléon I" – unfortunately downloading the whole document ends up with it in a corrupted state! Oh well will have to do it the hard way and download it one page at a time!!!!
