Excerpt from Great Campaigns: A Succinct Account of the Principal Military Operations Which Have Taken Place in Europe From 1796 to 1870

The subject-matter of the following pages has been compiled from a long series of printed and manuscript notes left by the late Major Charles Adams.

I have endeavoured to preserve in as unaltered a form as possible those abstracts of the great campaigns of history, on which his lectures, delivered at the Royal Military and Staff Colleges, during'a period of many years, were mainly based. As far as it lay in my power, I have retained most of the lectures in their entirety, only making additions to them in places where distinct gaps occurred in the narrative, owing to the loss or obliteration of the original notes. But in some cases I have been compelled to extend those memo randa which were so brief as merely to indicate the points on which the author purposed dwelling, and in other instances I have compiled from several accounts a history which should contain the most important points of each.
