Can anyone suggest a good single source book on the Russian Army of the late Napoleonic Wars? I want something with a comprehensive coverage of uniforms and organisation.

Thanks.

Internet is your friend:

Russian facings of the Napoleonic Era: link

Mark Conrad's Homepage (more than just Napoleonic and very impressive): link

Books: see Alexander Viskatov: link

And I am sure that others can add more "modern" books.
