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.

    5/5 Bobinyelm (TX) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman Pocket Knife (Sports) I've been carrying Swiss Army Knives every single day for 46 years, and I feel naked leaving the house without mine. Not only do I use almost all of the tools with frequency (I've settled on the Huntsman as the ideal combination of frequently used tools and bulk), but the quality is without reproach.I treat myself and purchase a new one every 10 years or so, though frankly they really don't wear out (though I did break an awl once misusing it, and wore a blade down re-sharpening it too often, but in 46 years that's nothing).A touch-up with a diamond rod every so often keeps it quite sharp, and a thorough wash with a toothbrush and boiling hot water monthly, with an oiling of the joints afterward keeps 'em looking and working like new.

    it isn't like I don't have plenty of knives

    This is my fourth Huntsman. The first one, I carried for nearly 8 years before it was stolen out of my desk (I am a teacher). The second one, I dropped thirty feet onto a concrete floor. The knife landed, blade-open and pointed straight at the concrete. It bent over nearly 45 degrees. I of course tried to straighten it on an anvil, which of course resulted in a broken blade. You want that in a knife, really. If it had bent back, I would have been suspicious. The miraculous thing is that the knife held together, didn't even loosen up. My Case or my Remington would have exploded into pieces. SO I bought another one. It came in around Father's Day, and my dad has always looked at my black Huntsman with envy in his eyes, so I gave that one to him. I tried and tried to get by without another one; it isn't like I don't have plenty of knives... but, like my philosophic friend here, I spent many hours contemplating the merits of the black Huntsman: I spend a great deal of time in the woods,... 5/5 Sean Downing - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    huntsman knife

    5/5 Flo (NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman Pocket Knife (Sports) I purchased this item, and am Very happy with it. I would like to address the concerns some reviewers had about the case that comes with the knife.If you place the knife with the Swiss Army logo to the front or back,and the ring on top, it will fit very nicely in the case. You don't want a lot of movement...not only will that scratch the finish, but it may inadvertently cause the flap to open, disgorging the knife. At the time that I purchased the knife I ordered a "specialty" case, also thru Amazon, based on the reviews here. I believe I will return it, as the case that comes with it is more than adequate.And,I hope this helps someone...if you look at the chart provided on the back of the package, you will see a diagram of where each part of the knife is located.See the gray "tab" by #10/key ring? If you pull that up, you will find the tweezers. The white tab? That would be the toothpick :o) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 22, 2010
