More > in a battle they formed line and acted with the infantry. The Regiment of the Dragoons of the Guard, created on 15th April 1806, was initially composed of four squadrons and one of vélites. Made up to five squadrons by the discontinuance of the latter on 1st April 1811, it numbered six squadrons in 1813 and 1814, four of which were 'Old Guard'. They served in Spain, Austria and Russia. However like the remainder of the Guard: it is an elite regiment and an expensive one, the Emperor hesitated to use it other than as a last resort. No other cavalry regiment in the French army compared to its service in 1813 and 1814, the campaigns of the Guard par excellence.

As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
