Containing chapters from some of the leading specialists in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, this volume covers a diverse range of topics that examine in detail aspects of the armies that fought for and against France from 1792-1815.

Containing chapters from some of the leading specialists in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, this volume covers a diverse range of topics. Philip Ball looks at the unfortunate General Mack, Terry Crowdy covers military intelligence in Napoleon’s Italian Campaign and Alex Mikaberidze examines Kutuzov’s role in the Austerlitz Campaign. There is a chapter by Alistair Nichols on the French émigré units in British pay and one by Mark Edward Hay on the rebuilding of the Dutch army before Waterloo. The Peninsular War is also covered with a chapter by Kenton White on French strategy and tactics and Robert Griffith covers the long-overlooked role of the battalions of light companies in Wellington’s Army.

About The Author
-

Ever since he picked up the first of Bernard Cornwell’s Sharpe books as a teenager, Robert Griffith has been passionately interested in the Napoleonic period. As the author of several historical fiction novels set during the long wars against the French, and an ardent Napoleonic re-enactor, he has long strived to bring alive the stories of the men who fought for Britain against the armies of Napoleon. Having now turned to writing history he exhaustively researches his subjects to draw out previously overlooked details of both the campaigns and the everyday life of Napoleonic soldiers.

Andrew Bamford completed a PhD in Military History at the University of Leeds in 2010, and now edits the From Reason to Revolution series for Helion.
