Thanks to Mark Urban I got some photocopies of a book this author wrote :
Neuf Mois de Campagne ŕ la suite du Maréchal Soult, Paris ? year.
It is one of the bet summaries I ever did read about French muskets, rifles and artillery, it deserves to be read by all who are interested in fire fights, more to come in due course.
Also of interest the Memorandum on Firing and Drill by General MacKenzie.
Those photocpies really saved my day, thanks again Mark, excellent material.
