Haythornthwaite discusses the use of heavy cavalry during the Napoleonic wars in the 188th volume of Osprey's "Elite" series.  Coverage examines how heavy cavalry and dragoons were organized, equipped and deployed.  And figure painters will love Hook's color artwork.  Another recommended Osprey reference!
