French Military Arms and Armor by Rene Chartrand
French Military Arms and Armor in America, 1503–1783 by Rene Chartrand
This work is an attempt to show the military weapons and armor in America used by French soldiers, settlers and sailors from the first explorers of the early 1500s to the achievement of independence by the United States of America in 1783. It is not intended as a study giving detailed mechanical descriptions, but rather to present a broad and comprehensive survey of the French military weapons used. The emphasis is on military weapons, which is to say, arms designed for a combat purpose.
