This is our major publication for 2014 and with it we are delighted to welcome Gerard Cronin into our elite band of authors. Gerard will be well known to many for his Gringos40 model soldiers company. Here, Gerard & Stephen put their talents together to produce the finest ever study of early Napoleonic Spanish uniforms. So, some facts: There are over 400 colour drawings including over 104 contemporary illustrations from Ordovas (1805 and 1806), Christopher Suhr, Augsburger and Bradford plus 138 uniform schematics based on Jose Bueno & Lienhart & Humbert; 52 fl;ags & shields are depicted; there is one map, 12 orders of battle and 13 tables. This allows the authors to explore in depth the Spanish Infantry of the period 1798-1811, of La Romana's famous division in Denmark and the troops committed to support the French Invasion of Portugal, which of course resulted in the disastrous collapse of the nation to French forces, but not before the old Spanish Regular Army had fought with distinction particularly at Bailen. This is the one and only book you will need on one of the most exotically dressed armies of the Napoleonic period. And before you ask, yes - the Cavalry and Artillery will be covered very soon in a separate volume.
