Napoleon's Swiss Troops

Creator: David Greentree, David Campbell | History - 2012-03-20

The Swiss held their ground and when their ammunition ran out they charged the Russians with bayonets. This book reveals the proud combat history of the Swiss troops of Napoleon's army as well as the colourful uniforms they wore.

Publisher: Osprey Publishing

About this book
Ever since the 15th century Switzerland had been exporting professional soldiers to serve as mercenaries for foreign monarchies. Napoleon, therefore, was not the first to make full use of the martial qualities of the Swiss and obtained Swiss agreement to expand the recruitment of regiments for service in the French Army. Napoleon would use Swiss troops on the battlefields of Italy and Spain, and in 1812 re-organize the four original regiments into a single division for the invasion of Russia, with each regiment having three full-strength battalions. In all theatres where they were engaged, Swiss contingents would often be relied upon to act as rearguards so other forces caught in a tight situation could escape. Time and again they would be asked to save the day for the French soldiers with whom they fought, in Italy and Spain and most famously for Napoleon himself, in Russia. In November of 1812, meeting up with Napoleon's main force retreating from Moscow at the Berezina River, the Swiss on the west bank guarded the approaches to the pontoon bridges from the Russian attack to the south. 1,200 Swiss, out of approximately 8,000 that entered Russia, were left to face, along with 8,000 men from other units, the 30,000-strong Russian army. The Swiss held their ground and when their ammunition ran out they charged the Russians with bayonets. This book reveals the proud combat history of the Swiss troops of Napoleon's army as well as the colourful uniforms they wore.

    Victorinox Swiss Army Knives

    Perfect!

    5/5 Lucky Day - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Fieldmaster Pocket Knife (Sports) Everything I need for lighter home use, camping, hiking, glove box, etc. (Too big to be my EDC, I prefer the Super Tinker for that). I have both the Fieldmaster and the Huntsman, and the only difference is the phillips screwdriver vs the corkscrew. You cannot go wrong with a true Swiss Army knife as long as you pick a model that suits your needs.TIPS:-There's a tiny hole under the phillips opening to add your own straight pin.-The hook is useful for pulling tent loops and stakes, hooking things through loops.-Reamer is great for punching belt loops, creating holes, getting out shoelace knots.-Be very careful with the saw - it is the sharpest tool I've ever seen! Useful for cutting twigs for marshmellow/hotdog cooking sticks, cutting cardboard.Highly recommended!

    Comparison of My Favorite Swiss Army Knives

    I have bought and used several versions of the Swiss Army knives. There are plenty of reviews that cover the pros and cons of specific versions of the Swiss Army knives (SAK), so I thought what I would do in my review is cover some of the things I like (or don't like) about the different versions in case anyone is like me and trying decide WHICH SAK they want to by. I did a lot of research before I bought any of the versions and then, of course, personally tried out different versions. So, I thought I would share my experience and what I like and don't like.Naturally, when it comes to which SAK to buy, there are fundamental choices to be made about what size of SAK you want as well as what functionality. Obviously, that can be personal preference. So, while I'm not going to list the features of each type of SAK, I'll talk about why I like particular knives (or don't) comparing their feature based on my preferences. I think I'm probably fairly "typical", but if you... 5/5 Patrick - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Terrific Product

    5/5 W. Johnson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Fieldmaster Pocket Knife (Sports) This is the second Victorinox that I have owned during the past twenty years. As a matter of fact, I only have this second knife because the last time I used my original I left it where I was working. I realized my loss too late as it was gone when I returned to get it. Someone has a terrific product. It has all the necessary blades, tools, scissors, etc. that I have found useful on a daily basis. With care it will last a lifetime, unless you lose it. My oringinal lasted twenty years and I am confident this new one with the same features as my last will do the same. It is a very dependable and useful product that will provide many years of service. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 28, 2012
