Napoleon’s Army

Officer’s uniform during the French Empire were quite the fashion statement.  Some were worn for special events but most of these were worn on the battlefield.

All of these were behind plexiglass so some of these are a little blurry but still all the the military museum inside the Invalides.

Some cavalry still wore armor plates which were useful against sabers but….

…not so useful against canon balls and riffles.
