Book about the Dutch Army 1793-1810

Already some time ago, a book appeared on the market called "Dutch troops of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars 1793-1810" by George Street and Karim van Overmeire.

Long overdue as Dutch troops fought from 1793 up to 1795 against French troops; from 1795 onwards were allied to the French (even becomming part of the French Empire in 1810) and after 1813 were fighting again against France.
Is there new material in the book? Well yes, when you haven't acces to (mostly) Dutch books of this period and for these, imho the book is a good addition to any library about this period.

For me was it a surprise that a lot of material of the earlier period (1793-1795) was taken from our "Alde Garde" website; as is is free information this is fine, a simple mail that they intend to do that I had appreciated more.

But, as I said before, get the book
