I really need a good recommendation for a book which describes in some detail the everyday routine and work of British cavalry officers and men during the Napoleonic wars at home and on campaign. I found plenty about drill, parades, guard duty, marches, etc. But there were not marches or parades every day. What did they do on a day to day basis. What were the responsibilities of officers and men when they got up in the morning until they went to bed? Any recommendations?
