9781848327597: 1809 Thunder on the Danube. Volume 3: Napoleon’s Defeat of the Habsburgs: Wagram and Znaim

"With this third volume John Gill brings to a close his magisterial study of the war between Napoleonic France and Habsburg Austria. The account begins with both armies recuperating on the banks of the Danube. As they rest, important action was taking place elsewhere: Eugene won a crucial victory over Johann on the anniversary of Marengo, Prince Poniatowski’s Poles outflanked another Austrian archduke along the Vistula, and Marmont drove an Austrian force out of Dalmatia to join Napoleon at Vienna. These campaigns set the stage for the titanic Battle of Wagram. Second only in scale to the slaughter at Leipzig in 1813, Wagram saw more than 320,000 men and 900 guns locked in two days of fury that ended with an Austrian retreat. The defeat, however, was not complete: Napoleon had to force another engagement before Charles would accept a ceasefire. The battle at Znaim, its true importance often not acknowledged, brought an extended armistice that ended with a peace treaty signed in Vienna. Gill uses an impressive array of sources in an engaging narrative covering both the politics of emperors and the privations and hardship common soldiers suffered in battle. Enriched with unique illustrations, forty maps, and extraordinary order-of-battle detail, this work concludes an unrivalled English-language study of Napoleon’s last victory."

About the Author:

John H Gill (Jack) is an Associate Professor on the faculty of the Near East - South Asia Center, part of Washington's National Defense University. A former US Army South Asia Foreign Area Officer, he retired as a colonel in 2005 after more than 27 years of service. His previous books include With Eagles to Glory and A Soldier for Napoleon.

Review:

“...sheds new light on well-known stages in the battle...he has covered more than just an epochal battle in a magnificent book that will satisfy the most avid enthusiasts of Napoleonic era military history. (Foundation Napoleon)

“...very impressive piece of work and is unlikely to be surpassed...one of the best examples of traditional Military History you will find, and will be a value to an academic audience and of great interest to a more general audience. A very impressive achievement and a very valuable guide to Napoleon’s last victory.” (History of War)

“The text is well-written and entertaining, the maps are generally excellent, portraits of many of the commanders are provided, and there are extensive OOBs for Wagram and Znaim. This is an example of how history should be written. Highly recommended.” (The Miniatures Page)
