Les Drapeaux de la Revolution

This was a little Christmas present to myself, recommended by Duncan Macfarlene. Caliver Books had a slightly damaged copy and here it is. As well as showing a great many the infantry flags for the French in both the early and later stages of the FRW, the book also covers the flags of Emigre regiments and those carried by the various Vendean and Breton Counter revolutionaries in their uprisings.

An absolute gold mine of information as I will now be able to do some flags for a few of my Emigre regiments that appear in the pages of this rather weighty and information-packed tome.


  1. You really have got the Revolution bug haven't you Colin? I look forward to seeing your flags.

  2. What a splendid book...

    You lucky man...

    All the best. Aly

  3. Wow, that looks to be a cracking book!

  4. Excellent addition to the library.

  5. Sounds like a beautiful and essential book for the period..."Ce livre fera sans doute des envieux mon général!"...
