As you all have plainly seen, I like to read the Osprey series of books, but honestly they are moderately inconsistent. Many are excellent, most are good, a few are weak.

Last night I finished reading Osprey Warrior #22: Imperial Guardsman 1799 - 1815 which deals with the French Imperial Guard of the Napoleonic Wars, and what a complex subject! I felt that the book walked me through it with just enough detail to keep it interesting, while not giving me the feeling that they'd taken out too much. I liked the book very much.
