This 'Tour de Force' of Napoleonic study is made available in the English language for the first time since its original French publication in 1979. The author is a respected historian, and this description of one of history's most famous fighting forces is amongst his finest works.
From Boulogne and Austerlitz to Spain and Moscow, and the dramatic conclusion at Waterloo, the reader is taken through the career of Napoleon's Grande Armee in thorough, well researched detail. The result is an account that, for completeness and value to a diverse audience, ranks with the best of military literature.
Students of the art of war, Napoleonic strategies and tactics, European history and military action will eagerly and this volume to their library, while they and wargamers, modellers and re-enactment groups will also benefit from the appendixes which include a chronology, maps, statistics on casualties, pay and structure and other features.
