What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Military Heritage, October 2007

“Throughout military history, the sound of bugles accompanying a cavalry charge has had an air of romanticism surrounding it … Charge! explains the different types of cavalry, the tactics they employed, and the care of the horses during various battles of the Napoleonic era … Author Digby Smith has included comprehensive charts at the end of the book listing the many cavalry units employed by both sides in the battles he examines meticulously in his book.”
