    Om Imperial Guard of Napoleon - from Mareng

    This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. J. T. Headley was born at the very end of the convulsive period of the French revolution and Napoleonic Wars that followed, and wrote a number of volumes on the French army and its leadership of the period. This volume is a short and pithy, none the less entertaining, account of the structure, growth and battles of the famed Garde Impriale of Napoleon. Starting with the formation of the Guard from the early days in its form as the Consular Guard and their baptism of fire at Marengo. In the words of Napoleon -It was Granite Column:(Words of the First Consul in his report on the battle of Marengo to the government, 27 Prairial year VII.)Headley charts the growth of a corps of a few thousand men to an army within an army from 1812 onward until their final heroic stand at Waterloo to their disbandment by the Bourbon monarchy. Leaders such as Bessires and Drouot are picked out in detail, and famous events are described with panache. The volume leans heavily on Emile Marco St-Hilaire's Histoire anecdotique, politique et militaire de la Garde impriale Paris, Penaud, 1845-47, but is none the worst for it. A jaunty read. Text taken, whole and complete, from the 1851 edition published in New York by Charles Scribner. Original 310 pages. Author - Joel Tyler Headley (30/12/1813 - 30/12/1897)
