Soldats d'Autrefois

Lucian Rousselot is best known for his famous series of uniform plates, L'Armée Française - ses uniformes, son armament, son équipement, published over a thirty year period between 1941 and 1971. This series of plates is considered one of the primary reference works on the French uniforms of the 1st Empire.

In the 1960’s, he created another set of excellent plates illustrating iconic units of French Napoleonic cavalry.
