Notes:

We have seen how deplorable was the condition of the country [1790s Egypt] at that time, drained by the greed of the Turkish Pacha and the Mameluke Beys; its population, which at the present day [1870s] has again doubled, was reduced to two and a half millions of souls. [...] But the stormy attacks of the swift and splendid Mameluke cavalry were of no avail against the strategic genius of the Corsican and the solid strength of the French battalions. (p. 2)

The Mameluke solider here wears a helmet and carres a spear and a variety of knives and swords.
