French Hussar Regiments and the Colonels who Led Them: 1792 to 1815

Part I: 1st - 7th Regiments

By Tony Broughton, FINS

While there are literally thousands of books on the Emperor and his marshals, generals, and the people who surrounded him very little as been written on the men who commanded his regiments.

It is my intention to list the colonels who commanded these regiments. Some of them became famous and others remain as statistics on Regimental rolls. Hopefully it will provide the reader with an insight as to these individuals.
