Special Note: Just 230 have been produced
General Lasalle is one of the most famous of all Napoleonic Generals and served with great distinction from the period of the revolution through his death during the Battle of Wagram in 1809. He was a superb light cavalry commander with with dash and flair - intellingent, talented, handsome, brave, and brash he truly personafied the light cavalry officer of the period. One of Napoleon's favorites, the Emperor often overlooked his rowdy behavior and when asked by a prefect why he never disciplined him stated "It takes a stroke of a pen to create a prefect, but it takes 20 years to create a Lasalle." He lead from the front and fought bravely in nearly every campaign from 1795 through 1809 when he was killed outright leading a charge at the Battle of Wagram. The Emperor and the army would mourn his loss. Simply superb sculpting and a level of painting that is normally reserved for much more expensive figures, NAP0408 General Lasalle will make a fantastic addition to any serious Napoleonic toy soldier collection.
60mm Hand Painted figure for collectors from the Napoleon's Europe product range.
