TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE.

THIS TRANSLATION would have appeared some time since had I not, by the desire of Messrs. Mittler and Son, the Berlin publishers, waited for the publication of a new edition, which embodied the experiences of the recent campaign.

The work from which the accompanying pages are taken is the text-book of instruction in the German Cavalry. Even were its merits not sufficiently evident, the manner in which outpost duty was performed in the German Army during the late war would testify to the talents of its distinguished author.
