"The Napoleonic Soldier" on A&E

On Feb. 18, the A&E show "Foot Soldier" will focus on the Napoleonic soldier. This is an hour program hosted by Richard Karn (yes, Tim Allen's assistant on Home Improvement) and tends towards the silly at times (re-enactors running around amid goofy sound effects), but the academic talking head experts interviewed are interesting. (I take some of the stuff written into the narration with a grain of salt because I think the writers tend to overemphasize the bizarre and amusing.)
I've seen the ones about the Romans and the Barbarians, which involved British re-enactors so I think this is co-produced with a Brit TV company? (BTW, Tonight's episode is about the Medieval Soldier)
