Fanteria di Linea di Napoleone

Osprey Men-At-Arms Series 141

Fanteria Napoleonica, Osprey Men-At-Arms Series 141

Napoleon’s line infantry was founded upon that of the Ancien Régime. A total re-organisation began on 1 January 1791 with the abolition of the old regimental titles, e over the next two years an increasing number of conscript e volunteer battalions were formed. Their quality varied from the proficiency of the early National Guard regiments to the untrained e ill-equipped rabble of the levée. To combine the discipline e steadiness of the regular army with the revolutionary fervour of the new army, the Amalgame was decreed on 21 February; by this measure each regular battalion became the nucleus of a new Demi-Brigade.
