Martinien's "Officiers Tués et Blessés"
In Response To: Re: French Officer Casaulties ()

Andrew -

My copy of Martinien was published in paperback around 1980. It is 824 pages long. I believe it is still available through French bookstores.

Martinien is not like Hall. It is a listing by regiment and date/battle of officers killed and wounded. It only provides the last name and rank of the officer and whether he was killed, wounded, or died of wounds. It provides no additional biographical information on the officer.

It is a very useful book, but it does have several limitations. There is no listing by name of officer or by separate battle. You would have to know what units participated in a particular battle and then look up that unit. Furthermore, if an officer was on the staff and did not belong to a regiment listed in the order-of-battle, it would be very difficult to find his name.

Despite these limitations, this book is extremely useful. I highly recommend it.
