“ … [Wargamers] will definitely want to purchase this book - if they do not already possess the original edition.”

- Miniature Wargames

"This is a useful book for enthusiasts for the Napoloenic period." - *Listed in Military History Monthly's round up of the best military history titles for January 2018*”

- Military History Monthly

“Dr. Nafziger has put another feather in his cap with this book. He is able to move seamlessly from the political to the military sphere. He also effortlessly goes from the strategic to the tactical without missing a beat or losing the reader… The book goes from the back drop of the 1812 Campaign to the armistice in early June 1813. The author is able to take the reader to the battles and councils of both sides of the conflict and bring them both to life for the reader.”
