Very good condition book and DJ. 403 pages good and clean with clear print, indexed. At the back of the book is a large pull-out map. 'By 1813 the flame of Napoleon's military genius was almost burnt out. His defeat in Russia in 1812 had set the seat on a decline that had begun in 1809. Yet a little of his old fire remained, and despite the reverse in Russia the year before he was still able to wage a campaign in Germany in 1813, raising an army of 200,000 men in April that had swelled to 600,000 three months later, and it was a campaign that showed dramatic signs of his former brilliance.
