This is a distillation of the knowledge, intuition and wisdom of history's greatest military commander. Napoleon's success was built upon practical experience combined with his own study of classical warfare and his natural grasp of the key principles of war. His thoughts, theories and commentaries on the subject are here presented in the form of accessible and readable maxims and these, with explanatory comments, reveal the fundamentals of Napoleon's art of waging war. David Chandler has added to the explanatory comments and provided the necessary context for modern readers to compare Napoleon's principles with the experience of war in the modern age. This revealing guide presents Napoleon's principles of war and his art of conducting statecraft; it is a fascinating insight into a great mind and a unique collection of tenets on warfare in the Napoleonic era.
