Description
 
Orphan Eagle is the history of the soldiers who spoke Polish, Lithuanian, Ukrainian and Blerusian; but acknowledged themselves as citizens of the Commonwealth of Two Nations (Poland - Lithuania). They fought for the French Republic and Napoleon from the years 1795-1815. For simplicity I have referred to these soldiers and "Polish" as that was the common name use of that time. The Poles and Imperial France both used eagles as symbols for their military, but the Poles never really re-established their former frontiers. Despite veiled assurances from the Republic and Imperial France, the Poles fought miles away from their homes with a dream of independence that was never achieved. Even in 1814 when most of France's allies had deserted them and it might have been easier to make a deal with the Allies, the Poles fought for Napoleon up to the gates of Paris. They fought under the eagles of Poland and for the eagles of France for over twenty years. Except for five of those years, most were spent without a homeland.

Orphan Eagles is the history of the Polish Legion and the Grand Duchy of Warsaw during the Napoleonic Wars. The history draws on Polish sources to give a history, organization and uniforms of the Polish-Lithuanian Armies from 1797 to 1815 from the plains of Italy, to the Caribbean, to Moscow and France.
Using a wide range of resources in multiple languages, this fully illustrated book gives the reader a complete history of the people, battles and uniforms of these valiant warriors.
