Following the Revolution in 1789, members of the aristocracy were
increasingly persecuted, and many of them fled abroad. These exiles
became known collectively as 'émigrés', and despite initial
confusions and indecision, many of them were taken into British
service. This fine text by René Chartrand examines the
organisation, uniforms and insignia of the Émigré troops in British
service from 1793 to 1802, accompanied by plenty of illustrations
including eight full page colour plates by Patrice Courcelle.
