Description
Information
Napoleon was undeniably one of the greatest military strategists in history, but, as with Cromwell, strategy and statecraft were closely interwoven throughout his career.

For Napoleon, whether as general or statesman, the two decades of his maturity, from the triumphant invasion of Italy to the final defeat at Waterloo, were years of extraordinary achievement. Although he was not an innovator, Napoleon led some brilliant campaigns - in particular the conquest of Piedmont - and his disasters were almost as remarkable as his triumphs.

In this lucid and thoroughly researched work, eminent soldier and historian General Sir James Marshall-Cornwall brings to bear all his experience to produce a formidable and scholarly study of Napoleon's military career. Complete with maps, portraits, prints and pictures of battle, this is a superb work, and will prove invaluable to amateur and professional students of military history.
