FRENCH DRAGOONS: Volume 2: 1669-1749 (Officers and Soldiers #25)
by Letrun, Ludovic
In this second half of the 18th century, military tactics changed, going from static siege tactics to rapid maneuvers, giving the cavalry a predominant role again on the field of battle. The changes in uniform, organization and tactics of the Dragoon regiments evolved over three periods. The main corps gradually joined with the cavalry, becoming a key element in the new strategy of movement.
The first period, included ordinances from 1750 and 1757, and mainly improved the troop's comfort. The second period of change reorganized and unified the corps. Finally the last period provided the republic with the most modern corps and army in the world.
Illustrated with 66 plates -- 200 horsemen and 60 flags.
