Facing the strong and confident armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden, Napoleon had only the bravery of his conscripts and his own fabled mastery of the battlefield to confuse and shatter his opponents. Napoleon inflicted a heavy defeat on the allies at Dresden, only to have it thrown away in the disaster at Kulm, and by his marshals' failures at the battles of the Katzbach, Gross-Beeren, and Dennewitz. Napoleon at Dresden is a panoramic view of the theater of war in Germany over August 1813. Not only covering these five great battles, it also pays close attention to the smaller battles and skirmishes, often critical for the course of the campaign, but many times only the testing ground of a forgotten regiment. The generalship of not only Napoleon is seen, but also that of his lieutenants, such as the famed Ney and the forceful Vandamme, as well as his opponents, the coalition manager Schwarzenberg, the turncoat Bernadotte, and the aggressive Blucher. August 1813 was the most active month of campaigning of the Napoleonic wars. Prepared from hundreds of sources, this is the most thorough study of the Dresden campaign ever written. You can now study and understand the repercussions of these fateful battles with Napoleon at Dresden.
