Fernand Hue - with the 'Blue Butchers'

The books of this author look interesting. I haven't found any online copies of his work but there's one on ebay. He was a brigadier in the 1er Chasseurs d'Afrique in the Franco-Prussian war and his works include
  • Histoire du 1er régiment de Chasseurs d'Afrique, H. Lecène et H. Oudin Editeurs Paris 1889
  • Aventures de cinq chasseurs d'Afrique au Mexique, Les Bouchers Bleus - grand roman historique, illustrations de Gil Baer, Société Française d'Imprimerie et de Librairie
A site that is the official site of the traditions and a detailed history of the Regiments and their equipment is here
