All illustrations in both series were done by the renowned painter of military subjects and well-known expert in military uniforms, Ryszard Morawski. Renowned historians and experts of this period wrote the texts of both series. They describe the history and involvement of Polish formations in various Napoleonic campaigns during the period of 1797-1815. 

We have also published books in the field of phaleristics and deltiology and series of postcards.
