“The success of our armies is mainly due to the use of bayonets. "
At the request of Marshal Victor, Alexander Muller, an officer during the First Empire, developed several instruction manuals by developing a series of lessons and exercises to improve the individual technique of combatants.
This second volume, in which is reproduced all of Muller's superb explanatory drawings, is devoted to the handling of the saber and the fencing of the rider.
Note: The "Instruction Manual" collection presents unpublished documents on the history of military training, especially during the Napoleonic period. It is essential for all enthusiasts of reconstruction and for those who love military techniques taught in the past.
