During the Second Empire the army and navy fought ten campaigns on four continents. Not since 1815 had French arms been employed by a policy of this magnitude. Registered in the folds of the flags of France's regiments were the names of Sevastopol Solferino Palikao Puebla Bazeilles the bold European diplomacy of Napoleon III and the global expansion of France. For the first time these campaigns and those who took part are addressed in an album. From the mountains of Kabylia in the Mekong Delta the high valley of Mexico to the plateau of Floing where the Empire died with the last heroic charge of the cavalry this book brings to life the rich glories and miseries of French military history during the reign of Napoleon III. Featuring a large number of paintings by renowned artists such as Detaille de Neuville and others this is a beautiful book superb!
