The fifth and final volume of this rich saga of the French Imperial Guard, Andre Jouineau presents the last troops in the Garde: the Horse Artillery, the Health Service, the crew trains, the artillery and artillery trains. A chapter about the headquarters staff closes the story of these glorious units. AndreJouineau has been contributing to Histoire & Collections for more than 16 years. His uniforms plates, which are fully designed using data processing, have made him a pioneer in this field. In the"Officers and Soldiers Series" (OAS) he is also co-author of American Civil War (vols. 1 and 2), The Imperial Guard (vol. 1, 2, 3 and 4), and French Hussars (vol. 1, 2 and 3).
Since the seventies, Andre Jouineau has dedicated himself to studies in history and uniforms. Regular contributor to various magazines, he was appointed official painter of the Army in 1985 (title kept until 1994). Then, in the mid-nineties, he tackled computer illustration, which allowed "creating" a new uniformology genus.
