Indispensable to anyone seriously interested in the subject --Library Journal (USA)

Colonel Elting's, Napoleonic Uniforms is possible one of the most complete and finest visual representation of the Uniforms of the First Empire epoch. Elting's annotations to each print contain some very interesting and useful information. I highly recommended the publication, which should be in every Napoleonic enthusiasts collection --Dave Watkins, First Empire magazine

The name of Knötel is synonymous with the study of the history of military uniforms. Richard Knötel (1857-1914) was among the first, and greatest, scholars who sought to research and record the military uniforms of the past, derived from contemporary sources . . . John Elting commissioned the watercolours that represent Herbert Knötel's great work, superbly presented in this Greenhill edition . . . Not only was Herbert Knötel an expert uniform historian, but he had himself served as a soldier in the Tannenberg campaign during World War I, and subsequently as a cavalry officer on the Eastern Front, experiences which must have informed his depiction of the soldiers from an earlier age. Combined with the expert commentary of Col. Elting, these volumes represent a remarkable view of the soldiers and armies of this renowned period --Philip Haythornthwaite
