Was there ever a book more suited to a place in the war gamers bathroom than this one? Lilian and Fred’s finest hour? There is no question to be asked. Every page stuffed full of artistic masterpieces illustrating jovial or lantern jawed Napoleonic troops doing the Napoleonic thing. You want to know what the Württembergers looked like? This is where you come. Spanish light infantry? Again, this is for you. French line infantry? Too easy.
You won’t want your trips to the bathroom to end once you pick up this nostalgia fest. It’s the original 1968 French edition and it’s on Ebay at the ridiculously low price of £7.50. You can get volume two as well! Vive l ’Empereur
