Great book set on the Napoleonic French

I had finally received the Andre' Jouineau book on the French Hussars 1st-8th Regiments from 1804-1812.  There are at least 8 books in this set that I am aware of, with this book being the 7th, the 8th book covers the French Hussars 9th-14th Regiments, they may also have books that cover infantry but I am not aware of them.  From what I have seen to date these are the BEST books on French Napoleonic Cavalry out there as far as having plates goes anyways.  I will post a couple of pictures below showing the cover and 1 page set to show you what this book as absolutely filled with, when I said filled with, I mean it!  Almost every page has 3-4 plates on it   Excuse me I think I am having a moment...LOL  Anyway these are great books, they cost $22.95 USD here, I do not know if they go for less elsewhere but even at that price they are brilliant!  If you have Napoleonic French Hussars that need painting and want reference material for them, these are a definite must have. UPDATE, I have since discovered that he has done several books on the French Imperial Guard, several campaign books including the battles of Jena and Auerstaedt, given that I am doing Jena Prussians, I see I will have to order that one as well...
Again sorry for the crappy pics, but I am just not that great of a photog and my camera isnt that great either.  So add two crappy things together and well you get crap... ;)
