About this Item: MINISTERIO DE DEFENSA, MINISTERIO DE DEFENSA. CENTRO DE PUBLICA, 2011. Rústica (Tapa blanda). Condition: Nuevo. Dust Jacket Condition: Nuevo. Guerra de España , son las memorias del militar y tratadista suizo Antoine Henri de Jomini, recopiladas por el también suizo coronel Ferdinad Lecomte quien realizó además una introducción y completó los últimos capítulos con las notas de Jomini, para abarcar todo el conflicto. Esta obra, penas conocida, no se había traducido anteriormente. . El barón de Jomini fue general de Napoléon y más tarde su adversario tras pasar a servir con el zar Alejandro I, parte de sus textos históricos, dedicados a la crítica y análisis de las guerras napoleónicas, son considerados como esenciales para conocer todo lo referente a los aspectos militares y estratégicos del Emperador. Asimismo sus obras de pensamiento estratégico gozaron de gran popularidad y prestigio, extendiéndose su influencia a lo largo de los siglos XIX y XX. . Guerra de España es la crónica de la participación de Jomini en la Guerra de Independencia, como jefe de estado mayor del mariscal Ney, desde su llegada a España con el 6º Cuerpo del ejército hasta el final de la guerra en 1814. Muchos combatientes franceses escribieron sobre aquellos sucesos que significaron la caída del mayor genio militar del siglo XIX, pero esta aportación personal de uno de los más importantes teóricos de la guerra decimonónicos, añade a su indudable valor historiográfico como partícipe de los hechos narrados, el de estar escrito por quien estaba considerado como uno de los mejores estrategas de su época.
