About this title:

Synopsis: Military professional and historian John R. Elting paints an exciting, detailed picture of the magnificent human fighting force, Napoleon's Grande Armee. Colorfully details every facet of life in Napoleon's army including rations, pay, mud and disease, mobile hospitals, loot, camp followers, and more. Two 8-page inserts.

From the Back Cover: This authoritative and enthralling book describes and analyzes Napoleon's most powerful weapon-the Grande Armee, which at its peak numbered over a million soldiers, and without which his military genius would have accomplished little. Elting examines every facet of this incredibly complex human machine: its organization, command system, logistics, weapons, tactics, discipline, recreation, mobile hospitals, camp followers, and more
