"Describes the army's structure and it's employment, including it's operations in Spain, Germany and Russia. The focus of the book is on providing a comprehensive depiction of the colourful uniforms of the individual units, as well as their military actions. It also addresses in detail the branches that are usually overlooked, like administration, medical, national guard, gendarmerie etc. The book draws on all the available sources in order to put together this very comprehensive overview. It is, without a doubt, the definitive work on the Westphalian Army. It is extensively illustrated with Peter Bunde's uniform graphics, contemporary images, maps and photographs of museum pieces. It also contains order of battle, generals' biographies and other information drawn from a myriad of sources.

it is a heavy book! Excellent production values, but so heavy, I fear for the binding with extended use.

Highly recommended. They present extremely detailed and visually supported material. Great color images, photographs of uniforms, weapons etc….
