The Prussian Army of 1813–15 was very different not only in appearance but in spirit from that of 1806. Blücher was essentially a cavalryman and, despite his years and heavy responsibilites as Commander-in-Chief, he thought nothing of leading cavalry charges in person during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). Although this was dangerous, he succeeded in driving his raw regiments to to victory. This book by a leading military historian analyzes the corps, regimental and squadron strength of the infantry, cavalry and artillery arms of Blücher's army. The text is accompanied by eight colour plates and several contemporary illustrations to depict the uniforms and experiences of the troops who participated in the final defeat of Napoleon.
