Chasseurs-a-cheval

William C.
Chasseurs-a-cheval, a form of light cavalry in Napoleon's Grand Armee. At their height, there were 31 regiments of Chasseurs-a-cheval. They could fight from horseback or on foot, and were cheaper than hussars or cuirassiers.They considered themselves just as good as the hussars (though the hussars thought otherwise), and many of them grew proud of their mustaches. Credit to Morbius for the horse, Josiah for the saber, and Fons for the musket. #armee #carbine #cavalry #charge #Chasseurs #cheval #grand #horse #horseback #mustache #napoleon #regiment #shako #war #waterloo
