1-193730 Wellington's Peninsular War Generals and their Battles: Biographic Dictionary 6 x 9.5 inches, 12 pages b/w plates.

This book contains the pithy biographies of some 40 senior officers who served Wellington, in the majority of cases, so ably during this six-year war. Many had experience of battle prior to the Peninsular and went onto greater heights thereafter. There is a section summarizing the major engagements that this 'band of brothers' took part in.

The book is arranged in alphabetical order and each thoroughly researched entry places its subject's life in his historical and political context. The result is a highly entertaining, informative and authoritative book.

1-666099 CASTALLA 1812 Y 1813 On July 21, the Spanish army of General Jose O'Donnell, confident and secure in their numerical superiority, was brutally beaten in the hoya Castalla near Alicante, by the troops of Marshal Suchet.

A year later, on April 13, 1813, a council of war would raise an army composed of English, Portuguese, Sicilian, and Spanish troops to turn the tide of war in the Spanish Levante. With King Joseph in Vitoria, the Second Battle of Castalla marked the beginning of the end of the French in Valencia, who were forced to leave.

Suchet could not retake the initiative and could only delay as long as possible the imperial debacle in Aragon and Catalonia, abandoned to their fate by King Joseph and the Emperor.

1-66665 Chiclana 1811 - The Defense of Cadiz The Battle of Chiclana, also called the Battle of Barrosa, fought on March 5 of 1811 near Cadiz , was a battle of the Spanish War of Independence . An Anglo-Portuguese division defeated two French divisions, but this had minimal effect on the overall strategy of the war.

The reduction in the number of troops besieging the city gave the Anglo-Spanish garrison an opportunity to lift the siege and to this end a large allied force sailed from Cadiz to Tarifa and then north to attack the French lines by the rear, but the French, under the command of Marshal Victor , learned the moves of the allies and prepared a trap.

A French division blocked the road to Cadiz, while the other two divisions of Victor fell against the British division under the command of Sir Thomas Graham . After a bloody battle on two fronts, the British division defeated the French forces attackers. However, the lack of support from the Spanish contingent prevented an absolute victory, and the French were able to regroup and resume their positions in the siege, the Allies achieved their goal, and even Victor's considered a French victory since the siege C 1 vol, 80 pgs 2010 SPAIN, ALMENA EDICIONES

1-212680 Abel, Jonathan GUIBERT: Father of Napoleon's Grande Armee If there was one man, other than Napoleon himself, who determined the course of the Napoleonic Wars, it was Jacques-Antoine-Hippolyte, comte de Guibert, the foremost military theorist in France from 1770 to his death in 1790. Taking in the full scope of the times, from the ideas of the Enlightenment to the passions of the French Revolution, Jonathan Abel's Guibert is the first book in English to tell the remarkable story of the man who, through his pen and political activity, truly earned the title of Father of the Grande Armee.

In his Essai General de Tactique, published in 1771, Guibert set forth the definitive institutional doctrine for the French army of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. But unlike many other martial theorists, Guibert, who served in the French Ministry of War from 1775 to 1777 and again from 1787 to 1789, was able to put his ideas into practice.

Drawing on a wealth of primary source documents-including Guibert's own papers and the letters and memoirs of his friends and associates-Jonathan Abel re-creates the temper of an era of great turbulence and remarkable creativity. More than a military theorist, Guibert was very much a man of his day; he attended salons, wrote poetry and plays, and was inducted into the Academie Francaise. A fiery figure, he rose and fell from power, lived and loved fiercely, and died swearing that he would 'find justice.'

In Abel's account, Guibert does at last receive a measure of justice: a thorough, painstakingly documented picture of this complex man in the thick of extraordinary times, building the foundation for Napoleon's success between 1796 and 1807-and in significant ways, changing the course of European history. 1 vol, 296 pgs 2016 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-970011 Arcq, Alain; illust by Florent Vincent WAVRE and NAMUR - 18-21 June 1815 FORGOTTEN BATTLES series: On the evening of the battle of Ligny, Napoleon marched to Waterloo. Winner of the Prussians, the Emperor joined Marshal Ney, who was unable to beat the British allies, Belgian and Dutch at the Battle of Quatre Bras. The Emperor left the Grouchy chase what he believes to be a Prussian army routed. While the cannon thundered in Waterloo, the Army Corps of Grouchy engage the Prussians at the Battle of Wavre. Grouchy did err in not walking to the sound of cannon to Waterloo? Did he simply followed the order of the Emperor?

The volume of real Napoleonic battle totally ignored attempts to restore the truth about this episode. After the Battle of Wavre, this book presents for the first time in full fighting Namur copy and retirement of the French army to France, organized with zeal by Grouchy. This volume concludes the trilogy of battles before the final battle of Waterloo. 60 b/w & color illust & maps etc. 1 vol, 112 pgs 2012 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE EDITIONS

1-207790 Arnold, James NAPOLEON 1813: Decision at Bautzen Napoleon 1813, with 35 maps, 70+ illust and appendices, describes and explains Napoleon's efforts to recover from the catastrophe of 1812. It dismisses many conventional myths regarding the spring campaign of 1813.

Was Ney to blame for the campaign's failure? What role did Napoleon's lack of cavalry play? Did one of history's 'Great Captains' have a realistic chance to preserve his reign? On the allied side, the role of Prussia is described, including the critical contribution of the much-scorned Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III.

Blucher and the Prussian General Staff emerge with relentless determination to fight the French. Their distrust of the Russians and their own blunders threaten to unravel the Russo-Prussian alliance.

At the heart of the allied effort is Tsar Alexander. His messianic vision to bring down the French emperor works at odds with his decision to usurp command of the allied armies from the military professionals. Throughout the story of the tumultuous spring days, Napoleon 1813 gives voice to the soldiers who participated in a campaign that proved Napoleon's last, best chance to preserve his dynasty. 1 vol, 464 pgs 2015 UK, JAMES ARNOLD

Using primary sources gleaned from libraries and archives in Europe and the United States, Napoleon's Triumph describes Napoleon's amazing reversal of fortune. It relates the winter battles that blunted the Russian offensive and then turns to the complex, dramatic Siege of Danzig. Renewed campaigning in the spring witnessed yet another surprise Russian offensive.

But for the leadership of Marshal Michel Ney, Bennigsen would have removed a major French piece from the strategic chessboard. Instead came Napoleon's counteroffensive leading to the Battle of Heilsberg, Napoleon's least-understood major battle. The decisive triumph at Friedland occurred four days later, an encounter heretofore shrouded by biased interpretations, one designed to burnish Napoleon's image, the other to explain away a bad Russian defeat.

Lavishly illustrated with portraits, drawings, paintings, and maps, and supplemented with detailed appendices on the strengths and composition of the rival forces, Napoleon's Triumph provides an original interpretation of the 1807 campaign. 1 vol, 440 pgs 2011 UK, JAMES ARNOLD

1-35760 Austin, Paul Britten 1812: NAPOLEON IN MOSCOW This is the second of three volumes, in which Mr. Britten-Austin paints a riveting picture of Napoleon's Russian Campaign in 1812. The concentration is on that part of the campaign aimed at Moscow, and the activities of other forces, detached to address different targets, are only covered in so far as they impact on the march on, stay-in and retreat from Moscow.

A huge number of personal recollections have been carefully sifted and appropriate extracts selected, and then merged into a continuous narrative, linked almost seamlessly together by Mr.Britten-Austin himself. The result is a masterpiece. The feeling of immediacy is very pronounced and indeed at times the events, harrowing in themselves, are so graphically described by the participants that the reader has to pause, all but overcome by the horror and pathos of the narrative.

This volume is dominated by the conflagration that engulfed most of Moscow immediately after the French arrival, by Napoleon's dithering as he waits for Russian responses that never come to his peace overtures, by Murat's starving forces confronting increasing Russian resistance and by the fatal decision to lurch southwards from Moscow with forces that have already been depleted by hunger and disease, and demoralised by looting and growing breakdowns in discipline. The volume ends with the Emperor's realisation, far too late, that a victory in the field, in the Ukraine or elsewhere, is impossible in 1812 and that retreat is unavoidable. This is grim story of wishful thinking, lack of realism and of a slide towards disaster. Few of the major players come well out of it, other than Prince Eugene Beauharnais, Napoleon's stepson, who in this and the subsequent volume, emerges as an admirable and capable commander in very difficult circumstances. As with the other volumes the footnotes (at the back of the book) are a joy, often packed with detailed information that sheds significant illumination on the main text.

1-209520 Baker-Smith, Veronica WELLINGTON'S HIDDEN HEROES: The Dutch and the Belgians at Waterloo The Duke of Wellington described the Battle of Waterloo as 'the most desperate business I ever was in . . . I was never so near being beat.' The courage of British troops that day has been rightly praised ever since, but the fact that one-third of the forces which gave him his narrow victory were subjects, not of George III, but of the King of the Netherlands has been almost completely ignored. This book seeks to correct a grave injustice through the study of Dutch sources, the majority of which have never been used by English-speaking historians.

The Dutch-Belgians have been variously described as inexperienced, incompetent and cowardly, a rogue element in the otherwise disciplined Allied Army. It is only now being tentatively acknowledged that they alone saved Wellington from disaster at Quatre Bras. He had committed a strategic error in that, as Napoleon advanced, his own troops were scattered over a hundred kilometers of southern Belgium.

Outnumbered three to one, the Netherlanders gave him time to concentrate his forces and save Brussels from French occupation. At Waterloo itself, on at least three occasions when the fate of the battle 'hung upon the cusp,' their engagement with the enemy aided British recovery. Their commander - the Prince of Orange - has been viciously described as an arrogant fool, a disaster waiting to happen, and even a dangerous lunatic. According to the assessment of Wellington himself, he was a reliable and courageous subordinate.

This book reveals a full assessment of the challenge Willem I faced as king of a country hastily cobbled together by the Congress of Vienna, and of his achievement in assembling, equipping and training 30,000 men from scratch in 18 months. 1 vol, 208 pgs 2015 US, CASEMATE

The book deals with all aspects of the campaign, from grand strategy, with the proposed marriage alliance between the House of Orange and the House of Hanover, to tactical analysis of the battles and sieges that took place, including the disastrous attack on Bergen-op-Zoom, where heroic British soldiers paid with their lives for their commanders' failures. The problems of co-operation between the British and Prussians described here foreshadowed those, which would affect Wellington in 1815.

1-202360 Bamford, Andrew SICKNESS, SUFFERING, AND THE SWORD: The British Regiment on Campaign -- 1805-1815 Although an army's success is often measured in battle outcomes, its victories depend on strengths that may be less obvious on the field. This work assesses the effectiveness of the British Army in sustained campaigning during the Napoleonic Wars and a fresh and controversial look at Britain's military system -- showing that success or failure on campaign rested on the day-to-day experiences of regimental units rather than the army as a whole.

Bamford draws his title from the words of Captain Moyle Sherer, who during the winter of 1816-1817 wrote an account of his service during the Peninsular War: 'My regiment has never been very roughly handled in the field. . . . But, alas! What between sickness, suffering, and the sword, few, very few, of those men are now in existence.' Bamford argues that those daily scourges of such often-ignored factors as non-combat deaths and equine strength and losses determined outcomes on the battlefield.

In the 19th century, the British Army was a collection of regiments rather than a single unified body, and the regimental system bore the responsibility of supplying manpower on that field. Between 1808 and 1815, when Britain was fighting a global conflict far greater than its military capabilities, the system nearly collapsed. Only a few advantages narrowly outweighed the army's increasing inability to meet manpower requirements. This book examines those critical dynamics in Britain's major early 19th-century campaigns: the Peninsular War (1808-1814), the Walcheren Expedition (1809), the American War (1812-1815), and the growing commitments in northern Europe from 1813 on.

Drawn from primary documents, Bamford's statistical analysis compares the vast disparities between regiments and different theaters of war and complements recent studies of health and sickness in the British Army. 1 vol, 328 pgs 2013 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

Rivoli 1797: The conclusion of a maneuver from a centralized position was brilliantly carried out by Bonaparte. Though outnumbered, the French won a decisive victory at the cost of the bloodiest fighting of the entire Italian campaign (1st edition: Vae Victis #18).

Zurich 1799: At the head of the last French army still in a condition to carry out an offensive campaign, Massena profited from a favorable position to save the Republic. The maneuver of Zurich and its results figured among the most glorious pages written by the soldiers of the Revolution (1st edition: Vae Victis # 29).

Montebello 1800: A clash between advance guards. The French columns hurled themselves against Austrian advanced posts and the battle expanded. The two leaders, wanting to seize the opportunity to shine, ended up committing the greater part of their reserves (1st edition: Canons en Carton).

Marengo 1800: An intense battle that the French were losing for a long while was transformed into a stunning victory when the French were able to reconcentrate and strike hard against the over-confident Austrians. Desaix and Kellermann thus brought a fresh title of glory to the young First Consul Bonaparte (1st edition: Vae Victis # 35). 1 vol, 24 pgs 2017 FRANCE, CERIGO EDITIONS

1-204280 Boue, Gilles LEIPZIG 1813 Around Leipzig between 14-19 October 1813, 500,000 men would battle on what remains the greatest battlefield of the Napoleonic wars. Napoleon would fight to keep his grip on Germany and beyond his empire. The Russians, the crowned winners of the unthinkable victory of their 1812 winter campaign, the Prussians, and their vehemence against France, the Austrians, wanting to erase fifteen years of defeats, all unite against the last Grand Army.

Napoleon succeeded at the feat of rebuilding a credible army on the ruins of 1812; the young recruits would march to the canon surrounded by survivors of the Berezina or the remote sierras of Spain.

The spring campaign has cast doubt on the coalition, however, the battles lost by the allies did not define their defeat. From the depths of Russia, Prussia, and Central Europe, ran hundreds of thousands of troops in the plains of Saxony.

And it is here, on the several dozen square miles of battlefield that the fate of the First Empire will be played out. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2014 FRANCE, HISTOIRE AND COLLECTIONS

1-210580 Brown, Steve and Burnham, Robert WELLINGTON'S REDJACKETS: The 45th (Nottinghamshire) Regiment on Campaign in South America and the Peninsula, 1805-14 The assault was failing. Wellington's men had stormed the walls of the great frontier fortress of Badajoz only to be beaten back with terrible losses. Then on the keep of the old castle the French flag was torn down and a British officer's red jacket was hauled up the flagpole. It was the signal - the British were inside Badajoz!

This was one of the most famous incidents during the Peninsular War and marked not only the turning point in the capture of Badajoz but of the entire conflict. The jacket belonged to Lieutenant James MacPherson of the 45th (Nottinghamshire) Regiment. The 45th had landed with Wellington at Mondego Bay in 1808 and fought with him throughout the entire Peninsular War gaining more battle honors than any other line regiment.

Wellington's Redjackets, The 45th (Nottinghamshire) Regiment on Campaign in South America and the Peninsular War is one of the most detailed unit histories ever published of a regiment during the Napoleonic era. As the first, and only, study of this regiment, Wellington's Redjackets will undoubtedly be an essential purchase for those interested in Napoleonic warfare. 1 vol, 320 pgs 2016 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-197320 Burnham, Robert CHARGING AGAINST WELLINGTON: The French Cavalry in the Peninsular War, 1807-1814 Eight pages of color plates, biblio, index.

The book is divided into three sections. The first contains biographies of 80 generals who led the French cavalry, focusing on the time they served in the Peninsula and its impact on their careers. Two went on to become Marshals of France and many were promoted and given greater responsibilities. For others, their careers were damaged while serving in Spain or Portugal - nine were relieved from their commands. Nearly half of the generals were killed, wounded, captured, or died from their wounds in Spain: a high price for glory.

The second section looks at the ever-changing organization of the cavalry, where the various regiments and brigades were located and who commanded them. This is not as easy a task as it may appear, because a considerable amount of the cavalry was provisional regiments, consisting of squadrons drawn from other regiments. By April 1814, the Peninsula cavalry was down to 4,000 men - a shadow of the force that invaded six years before. Charging Against Wellington chronicles all the changes, showing which units left, when they left, and how their departure impacted the army.

The third section looks at the service record of the 70+ French cavalry regiments that fought in Spain and Portugal. There is a table for each regiment that tracks the regiment's colonels, composition, organization, strength, and casualties while in the Peninsula, and when its various squadrons arrived and departed. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2011 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

These officers were the brigadiers and major generals who, for a variety of reasons, never made the jump to become permanent division commanders. Their characters, experience, and level of competence were key factors in the successes and failures of the army as a whole. Their biographies give us a fascinating insight into their individual backgrounds, their strengths and weaknesses, and the makeup of the society they came from.

Each biography features a table covering essential information on the individual, his birth and death dates, the dates of his promotions, and details of his major commands. This is followed by a concise account of his life and service. 1 vol, 336 pgs 2017 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-197330 Burnham, Robert and Ron McGuigan THE BRITISH ARMY AGAINST NAPOLEON: Facts, Lists and Trivia 1805-1815 Sixteen pages of color plates, biblio, index

Despite the bewildering number of tomes devoted to the Napoleonic wars, much basic data as been hitherto unavailable to anyone other than the most ardent scholars. McGuigan and Burnham have collected a tremendous treasure trove of information in a readily accessible form. Other books may tell you how many regiments were sent on the expedition to Hanover in 1805, but The British Army against Napoleon will tell you where every single regiment in the British army was stationed, who were their honorary colonels, and give you a list of all the barracks in Britain with the number of men they were designed to hold.

Where else will you find not just the pay of different ranked officers but the amount of income tax they paid, as well as all the other deductions and stoppages that reduced their actual receipts to a fraction of their nominal (and generally quite low) pay? Or pension charts for widows? There are tables that list all the recipients of the honors and awards issued, casualties in action and disease, and seniority of officers of the numerous expeditions and campaigns (a matter not just of curiosity but of major significance, for the date of rank of an officer determined who commanded the force and all of its sub-units). 1 vol, 336 pgs 2011 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-196080 Buttery, David WELLINGTON AGAINST JUNOT: The First Invasion of Portugal 1807-1808 The first French invasion of Portugal in 1807 -- which was commanded by Junot, one of Napoleon's most experienced generals -- was a key event in the long, brutal Peninsular War. It was the first campaign fought in the Peninsular by Sir Arthur Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, yet it tends to be overshadowed by more famous episodes in the six-year conflict that followed.

David Buttery, in this original and perceptive new study, sets the record straight -- his tightly focused narrative covers the entire campaign in vivid detail. 1 vol, 224 pgs 2011 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-212030 Buttery, David WELLINGTON AGAINST SOULT: The Second Invasion of Portugal 1809 At the heart of David Buttery's third book on the Peninsular War lies the comparison between two great commanders of enormous experience and reputation - Arthur Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, and Jean de Dieu Soult.

In Soult, Wellesley met one of his most formidable opponents and they confronted each other during one of the most remarkable, and neglected, of the Peninsular campaigns. Soult's invasion of Portugal is rarely studied in great depth and, likewise, the offensive Wellesley launched, which defeated and expelled the French, has also received scant coverage.

As well as giving a fresh insight into the contrasting characters of the two generals, the narrative offers a gripping and detailed, reconstruction of the organization and experience of a military campaign 200 years ago. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-192350 Caldwell, George THOMAS PLUNKETT OF THE 95TH RIFLES: HERO, VILLAIN, FACT OR FICTION? This book, being a combination of new research by George Caldwell and together with the Captain Miller memoir reset from issues of the Royal United Services Journal, investigates the facts surrounding a piece of famous regimental lore that covers the unique ability of an early Rifleman, Thomas Plunkett. Discussion groups and individuals have put all kinds of fanciful theories together as to the prowess and accuracy of an incident on the retreat to Corunna in 1809, involving the shooting of the French Light Cavalry General, Colbert.

This book examines the facts involved, while at the same time it expands on Plunkett the man, his character and his natural trait as a soldier. Plunkett was without doubt an exceptional shot with the rifle, a lovable Irish rogue, who seems to have ticked all the right boxes for what has become acceptable for the stereotype Rifleman of the 95th Rifles during the Napoleonic Wars. This fascinating account of the one rifleman who has escaped publication so far is a must for all enthusiasts of the Rifles in the Peninsular War. 1 vol, 122 pgs 2010 UK, KEN TROTMAN

1-213580 Clover, Gareth THE AMERICAN SHARPE: The Adventures of an American Officer of the 95th Rifles in the Peninsular and Waterloo Campaigns Sharpe and his adventures has made the 95th Foot renowned again and the discovery of an unpublished diary by an American from Charleston South Carolina who served, despite his father's objections, as an officer in this elite regiment has caused great excitement. Includes 16 high quality color prints.

James Penman Gairdner was born in Charleston, SC, but he was sent back to the 'Old Country' for his education, receiving his schooling at Harrow. After school, rather than joining his father's merchant business, he decided to become a soldier and received a commission in the famous 95th Rifles.

He subsequently served, without a break, from the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo in January 1812 until the end of the war in 1814. He then fought in the Waterloo campaign and formed part of the Army of Occupation. He was wounded on three occasions.

Throughout his service he kept a journal, which he managed to maintain on almost a daily basis. This journal, along with a number of letters that he wrote to his family are presented for the first time.

Readers will not find dramatic stories of great battles or adventurous escapades. Instead, Gairdner, details the everyday life of one of Wellington's soldiers; one of marches and billets, of the weather, the places, and the people of the Iberian Peninsula and of Paris and Occupied France - the real nature of soldering.

His diaries also highlight the very strange relationship between these newly independent Americans and the 'Old Country' they had so recently fought with; which even allowed for a true American boy to fight in the British Army, but not in America! 1 vol, 272 pgs 2017 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-210000 Cornwell, Bernhard WATERLOO: The History of Four Days, Three Armies, and Three Battles On June 18, 1815, the armies of France, Britain, and Prussia descended upon a quiet valley south of Brussels. In the previous three days, the French army had beaten the Prussians at Ligny and fought the British to a standstill at Quatre-Bras. The Allies were in retreat. The little village north of where they turned to fight the French army was called Waterloo. The blood-soaked battle to which the town gave its name would become a landmark in European history.

In his first work of nonfiction, Bernard Cornwell combines his storytelling skills with a meticulously researched history to give a riveting chronicle of every dramatic moment-from Napoleon's daring escape from Elba to the smoke and gore of the three battlefields and their aftermath. Through quotes from the letters and diaries of Emperor Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington, and the ordinary officers and soldiers, Cornwell brings to life how it actually felt to fight those famous battles-as well as the moments of amazing bravery on both sides that left the outcome hanging in the balance until the bitter end. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2015 US, HARPER

1-208360 Cowan, Paul WITH WELLINGTON IN THE PENINSULA: Vicissitudes in the Life of a Scottish Soldier Few men from the 71st Highland Light Infantry who sailed from Cork with Wellington to Portugal in 1808 returned to the Irish port six years later. The author of Vicissitudes in the Life of a Scottish Soldier was one of the survivors and claims only four other men from his company came through the entire six years with him.

As one of Wellington's elite Light Infantry units the 71st were in the fore of the fighting in some of the hardest fought battles of the Peninsular War. The book was controversial on its release in 1827 for its unvarnished and unsentimental account of the grim war against the French in Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal and France itself. A cynic with a highly developed sense of humor, the author was not afraid to criticize his superiors, be they thieving sergeants or officers who were far from gentlemen.

1-199430 Crowdy, Terry INCOMPARABLE: Napoleon's 9th Light Infantry Regiment An elite battalion under Louis XVI, the 9th Light Infantry regiment were with Napoleon from almost the beginning, turning the field at Marengo and breaking the Austrians. They then spent over a decade fighting their way across the continent, following Napoleon to the bitter end.

Bringing their Eagle out of hiding when Napoleon returned from exile in 1815 they almost saved the day again, at Waterloo, spearheading a charge to rejoin Napoleon. But unlike at Marengo, they failed. Napoleon dubbed them 'Incomparable' and their story is extraordinary even by the standards of the dramatic and turbulent years in which they lived. 1 vol, 416 pgs 2012 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-207690 Crowdy, Terry NAPOLEON'S INFANTRY HANDBOOK If not a field marshal's baton, what did Napoleon's soldiers really carry in their backpacks?

Napoleon's Infantry Handbook is an essential reference guide, filled with fascinating detail on the training, tactics, equipment, service and administration of Napoleon's infantry regiments. Based on contemporary training manuals, regulations and orders, Napoleon's Infantry Handbook details the everyday routines and practices which governed the imperial army up to the Battle of Waterloo and made it one of history's most formidable military machines.

Through years of research, Terry Crowdy has amassed a huge wealth of information on every aspect of the infantryman's existence, from weapons drill and maintenance, uniform regulations, pay, diet, cooking regulations, hygiene and latrine digging, medical care, burial of the dead, how to apply for leave and so on.

This remarkable book fills in the gaps left by campaign histories and even eyewitness memoirs, which often omit such details. This book doesn't merely recount what Napoleon's armies did, it explains how they did it. The result is a unique guide to the everyday life of Napoleon's infantry soldiers. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-200620 Davin, Didier and Jouineau, Andre The Swiss in French Service 1785-1815 (Officers and Soldiers #19) #19 in the Officers & Soldiers series.

As early as the Renaissance, Switzerland solved part of its financial problems by developing a truly mercenary industry. Each canton could sign a contract (a capitulation) to recruit military units with their own officers and regulations in exchange for pay and equipment for a neighboring state. On the eve of the Revolution Swiss units served in the government guards or the troops of the Line in France, the Italian States, Spain, and the United Provinces.

The revolutionary process in France ran up against their loyalty to their employer -- the French King -- and the sad events of the massacre of the Swiss Guard on 10 August 1792. The Swiss regiments of the line were disbanded, but the country ultimately furnished France with troops of great worth who upheld their favorite motto 'Honneur et Fidelite.'

The book skims over the Swiss troops in service with the King on the eve of the Revolution to concentrate on those who served the Republic, the Consulate, and then the Empire, focusing on less well-known aspects. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2012 FRANCE, Histoire

1-214070 Dawson, Paul Lindsay NAPOLEON'S GODS: The Grenadiers a Cheval 1812-1815 The senior regiment of Napoleon's Imperial Guard was the Grenadiers a Cheval, nicknamed the Gods, and hence the title of this book.

As heavy cavalry of the Guard, they took part in the charge of the cavalry of the Guard at Austerlitz. They especially took a share of glory with their charge at Eylau on 8 February 1807. They served in Spain, Austria and Russia. No other cavalry regiment in the French army compared to its service in 1813 and 1814, the campaigns of the Guard par excellence. They were present at Dresden, Leipzig and especially Hanau where they charged the Austrian and Bavarian cavalry, and took part in the famous charges of the Imperial Guard at Waterloo.

This book provides a brief introduction to Napoleon's Imperial Guard and the regiment's place in it, as well as brief early history of the regiment, and a hoof-to-tack description of the Grenadiers a Cheval from the fateful Russian campaign of 1812 to its disbandment in 1815 following the disaster of Waterloo. It describes the horses, uniforms and equipment of the regiment, as well as regimental organization, and provides short biographies of the officers and some of the men, giving a vivid picture of how the men of the regiment lived, and in some cases, how they died. 1 vol, 404 pgs 2017 UK, BLACK TENT PUBLICATIONS

The engagement took place during the 1814 campaign. After Napoleon had retreated from Russia and lost the Battle of Leipzig, the allied armies had invaded France. Napoleon won a number of victories (such as the battle of Reims), but had little chance of success, with just 70,000 men against half a million allied forces.

Napoleon had achieved a remarkable victory with troops whose morale had suffered due to heavy casualties and the defeats at Craonne and Laon. According to the historian F.W.O. Maycock, success at Reims was 'surely one of the greatest triumphs of [Napoleon's] remarkable career, and speaks volumes for his powers as a leader of men.'

Napoleon once again interposed between the forces of Blucher and Schwarzenberg, putting him in position to move on the latter's line of communications. Reims would be Napoleon's final victory in the Campaign of 1814.

The campaign ended with the allies taking Paris on 31 March and Napoleon's abdication on 6 April. 1 vol, 104 pgs 2014 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE EDITIONS

Rather than focusing on the history of the 30th Regiment of the Line in action and on campaign, she explores its organization, traditions and hierarchy, its personnel, and the ethos that held it together.

1-195370 Divall, Carole REDCOATS AGAINST NAPOLEON: The 30th Regiment During the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars Companion volume to Inside the Regiment: The Officers and Men of the 30th Regiment During the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Military histories of the struggle against the French armies of the Revolution and Napoleon often focus on the exploits of elite units and famous individuals, ignoring the essential contribution made by the ordinary soldiers - the bulk of the British army. Carole Divall, in this graphic and painstakingly researched account, tells the story of one such hitherto ignored group of fighting men, the 30th Regiment of the Line. She takes their story from one of the opening clashes of the long war, the Siege of Toulon in 1793, to the decisive Battle of Waterloo in 1815. She gives us a fresh perspective on key events the men took part in - Massena's retreat from the Lines of Torres Vedras, the bloody storming of Badajoz, the retreat from Burgos, the ordeal of the troops holding the centre of Wellington's Waterloo position. The regiment's history - which she describes using some hitherto unpublished and vivid memoirs left by the men themselves and those they fought alongside - offers a fascinating insight into the life of British soldiers two centuries ago. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2011 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-206260 Divall, Carole WELLINGTON'S WORST SCRAPE: The Burgos Campaign 1812 The disastrous retreat and near disintegration of Sir John Moore's army on the road to Corunna in 1809 is traditionally regarded as the low point in the history of the British intervention in the Peninsular War. Yet under the Duke of Wellington, the British and their allies suffered defeats and retreats that tend to be overshadowed by the series of victories that eventually drove the French from Portugal and Spain. None of these setbacks was graver than the retreat that followed the disastrous failure of the siege of Burgos in 1812.

By reconstructing events in close detail, and by bringing together [many] primary sources, she gives a vivid account of what happened and why. Wellington himself recognized the mistakes and miscalculations that led to the potentially catastrophic situation in which he placed his men. He described it as his 'worst scrape.' Yet most of the letters, journals and memoirs that have survived praise the skill with which he saved Britain's only army from disaster.

Carole Divall weaves together Wellington's dispatches with the eyewitness testimony left by British and Portuguese officers and men, by civilians, and by the French. A fascinating, multi-layered impression emerges of the siege of Burgos itself and the sequence of maneuvers that preceded it. She describes in authentic detail the tense decision-making and the misjudgments that were made on the allied side and the headlong retreat that followed as the British fled from two French armies that threatened to trap and destroy them.

Carole Divall's in-depth study of a pivotal - and neglected - episode in the Peninsular War gives a fascinating insight into the character of the fighting, at every level, and into the strengths and weaknesses of Wellington's command. 1 vol, 240 pgs 2014 UK, PEN & SWORD

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. From the army's formation out of the turmoil of Revolutionary France through its swift conquests of vast territories across Europe to its legendary death at Waterloo, this book uses excerpts from soldiers' letters, eyewitness accounts, and numerous firsthand details to place the reader in the boots of Napoleon's conscripts and generals. In Elting's masterful hands the experience is truly unforgettable.

1-199950 Esdaile, Charles OUTPOST OF EMPIRE: The Napoleonic Occupation of Andalucia, 1810-1812 Napoleon's forces invaded Spain in 1808, but two years went by before they overran the southern region of Andalucia. Situated at the farthest frontier of Napoleon's 'outer empire,' Andalucia remained under French control only briefly - for two-and-a-half years - and never experienced the normal functions of French rule. Esdaile moves beyond traditional military history to examine the French occupation of Andalucia and the origins and results of the region's complex and chaotic response.

Disillusioned by the Spanish provisional government and largely unprotected, Andalucia scarcely fired a shot in its defense when Joseph Bonaparte's army invaded the region in 1810. The subsequent French occupation, however, broke down in the face of multiple difficulties, the most important of which were geography and the continued presence in the region of substantial forces of regular troops. Drawing on British, French, and Spanish sources that are all but unknown, Esdaile describes the social, cultural, geographical, political, and military conditions that combined to make Andalucia particularly resistant to French rule.

Esdaile's study is a significant contribution to the new field sometimes known as occupation studies, which focuses on the ways a victorious army attempts to reconcile a conquered populace to the new political order. Combining military history with political and social history, Outpost of Empire delineates what we now call the cultural terrain of war. This is history that moves from battles between armies to battles for hearts and minds. 1 vol, 512 pgs 2012 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-66690 Fernandez, Jose FUENTES de ONORO 1811 In 1810, Massena had followed the British-Portuguese army back to Lisbon before arriving at the Lines of Torres Vedras. He was determined against storming this extensive double line of interlocking fortifications. After starving outside Lisbon through a miserable winter, the French withdrew to the Spanish border with the British-Portuguese army in pursuit.

After Portugal was secured, Wellington set about re-taking the fortified frontier cities of Almeida, Badajoz and Ciudad Rodrigo. Whilst Wellington besieged Almeida, Massena reformed his battered army and marched to relieve the French garrison in the city. Wellington chose to check the relief attempt at the small village of Fuentes de Onoro.

Wellington left his line of retreat exposed in order to cover all routes to Almeida: he felt this risk was justified because the French would not have more than a few days supplies whereas he had more than that. The British and Portuguese army had 34,000 infantry, 1,850 cavalry, and 48 guns. The French had 42,000 infantry, 4,500 cavalry and 38 guns. 1 vol, 110 pgs 2013 SPAIN, ALMENA EDICIONES

And too often the clash at Quatre Bras has been seen mainly through the eyes of the British and their allies - the viewpoint of the French has been neglected.

Drawing on French eyewitness recollections and later commentary, he reconstructs the French experience of the battle - and the French interpretation of it. He quotes extensively, and subjects to critical analysis, the conflicting accounts written by Napoleon and his subordinates as they sought to justify their decisions and actions at this pivotal moment in the campaign. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2014 UK, Pen & Sword

2-30510 Gallaher, John G. NAPOLEON'S IRISH LEGIONS Drawing heavily on the original documents of the Archives de la guerre, John G. Gallaher has written the first complete account of the storied Irish Legion, which joined with Napoleon to fight England.

Following the failed Rebellion of 1798, hundreds of Irishmen fled to the Continent to avoid imprisonment or execution. As part of his planned campaign against England and Ireland in 1803, Napoleon authorized the creation of an Irish Legion to invade Ireland in order to tie down British forces that could otherwise have been used against the main French invasion of England. The promise of returning to Ireland with the French army at their backs brought many recruits to the Legion. The Irish emigrants who enlisted in this special unit of the French army were Irish nationalists who intended to liberate Ireland and create an Irish republic.

When the anticipated expedition to Ireland never took place, some of the Irishmen quit the army though the great majority of them remained to fight for Napoleon. Battalions of the Legion encountered the British at Flushing in 1809, fought Wellington in Portugal in 1810-11, and served with distinction at the Battle of Bautzen and in Silesia, where after heavy losses in lesser engagements with the enemy, the Legion was finally destroyed on the banks of the Bober River in 1813.

1-16820 Gill, John H. WITH EAGLES TO GLORY The classic is back in print. If you missed this book the first time around, this is a must for your Napoleonic library. Yes, it's that good.

When Napoleon's Grand Armee went to war against the might of the Habsburg empire in 1809, its forces included more than 100,000 allied German troops. From his earliest imperial campaigns, these troops provided played a key role as Napoleon swept from victory to victory and in 1809 their fighting abilities were crucial to the campaign. With Napoleon's French troops depleted and debilitated after the long struggle in the Spanish War, the German troops for the first time played a major combat role in the center of the battle line.

Aiming at a union of German states under French protection to replace the decrepit Holy Roman Empire, Napoleon sought to expand French influence in central Germany at the expense of the Austrian and Prussian monarchies, ensuring France's own security. The campaign Napoleon waged in 1809 was his career watershed. He suffered his first reverse at Aspern. The victory achieved at Wagram was not the knockout blow he had envisaged.

In this epic work, John Gill presents an unprecedented and comprehensive study of this year of glory for the German soldiers fighting for Napoleon. When combat opened they were in the thick of the action, fighting within French divisions and often without any French support at all. They demonstrated tremendous skill, courage and loyalty. 1 vol, 576 pgs 2011 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-208280 Glover G editor THE CORRESPONDENCE OF SIR HENRY CLINTON IN THE WATERLOO CAMPAIGN - VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2: Preparation for Waterloo (August 1814 - April 1815) This set contains Volume One and Volume Two.

This revealing and remarkable study came out of the blue when Gareth Glover discovered that the Clinton papers were held in two libraries on both sides of the Atlantic and that they ran to many thousand un-researched documents. It has been a labor of years of work to collate the documents and effectively edit them into one narrative.

Why is this so important? Clinton's meticulous diary and reports provide the essentially research into the small British-Hanoverian army that served as a defense force for the newly liberated Netherlands under the command of the hereditary Prince of Orange in August 1814. He performed the role of Inspecting Officer for all the troops in Belgium including the fledgling Belgian and Dutch units and is a vital witness to the quality and training of all of these troops and to the massive repair program to the main border fortresses in the run up to the Waterloo campaign.

With Napoleon's return to power and the mobilization of the army for war once again, Henry Clinton was then appointed by the Duke of Wellington to command the Second Division, consisting of Adam's British Light Infantry Brigade, Du Plat's Brigade of King's German Legion troops and Halkett's Brigade of Hanoverian troops, a very diverse group with varying degrees of experience, equipment and training. His correspondence most importantly is written contemporaneously and gives honest assessments regarding the strengths and weaknesses of all of these troops and is both enlightening and often surprising.

The second volume deals with the final preparations for war, including the arrival of the Duke of Wellington. The operations, particularly of the Second Division during the whirlwind campaign of Waterloo and the consequent march to Paris are described in great detail as are the details of the Army of Occupation which lasted until 1818, concluding with their embarkation.

As well as his correspondence, Henry Clinton also kept a personal diary that was completed each evening. All of this various material has been put into date order and each day's diary entry precedes the correspondence for the day (inserted by date of writing rather than of receipt) and the letters have been put in sequential order wherever it is possible or a time of day is indicated. The appendix gives extracts recorded by an officer in Adam's Brigade of his Brigade orders that dovetail with the correspondence between Sir Henry Clinton and his brigade. 2 vol, 560 pgs 2015 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

1-214430 Glover G. editor THE PENINSULAR WAR JOURNAL OF SERGEANT SAMUEL HARRISON: Of the 43rd (Monmouthshire) Regiment of Foot 1796-1812 Harrison joined the 43rd Foot as a Sergeant. We know that he proceeded with the regiment to the Peninsula and that he fought at the battles of Vimiero, Corunna, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz, Salamanca, Pyrenees, and San Sebastian. He eventually received a General Service Medal in 1848.

Only the first volume of his original journal, giving his service to 1812, has so far been discovered. This was written by another hand who combines his memoir with a general history of the war based on Napier. Harrison's many years in the Militia, the retreat to Corunna, his time at Walcheren, and his part in the storming of a redoubt at Ciudad Rodrigo are all clearly his own (unvarnished) words. But he also clearly had no recourse to any form of notes and therefore his memory fails him sometimes as to particular persons or dates of occurrences. But for all that, there are glimpses of a soldier who fought for many years in the wars against Napoleon and they still deserve to be preserved. 1 vol, 112 pgs 2017 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

Crowe does not pull his punches: he censures officers both junior and senior; he talks openly of the ravages of war, and the pillaging, raping and looting; the horrors of war, describing the deaths and horrific wounds of many in lurid detail, the cowardice and stupidity; and he also describes the mundane in detail - nothing is passed over.

1-209310 Glover, Gateth WATERLOO: The Defeat of Napoleon's Imperial Guard - Henry Clinton, the 2nd Division and the End of a 200-year-old Controversy This is the most detailed account of the 2nd Division at Waterloo ever published. It is based on the papers of its commander Sir Henry Clinton and it reveals for the first time the previously unrecognized vital role this division made in the defeat of Napoleon. It explains how the division was placed ahead of the main allied squares thus impeding the charges of the French cavalry, and how the 2nd Division supported the defense of Hougoumont, considered by the Duke of Wellington as the key to his victory on 18 June 1815.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of this book is the description of the defeat of Napoleon's Imperial Guard. Just who and how the incomparable Guard was stopped and then driven from the battlefield is explained in detail. Once and for all, this 200-year controversy is finally resolved. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2015 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-195300 Gouragaud, General NAPOLEON AND THE GRAND ARMY IN RUSSIA, OR A CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF THE WORKS OF COUNT PH. DE SEGUR THE BOOK THAT CAUSED A DUEL! One of the most significant studies of the 1812 campaign is also one of the rarest. There was no love lost between Baron Gourgaud & Philip De Segur.

Incensed by inaccuracies in De Segur's famous memoir of the 1812 campaign, Gourgaud wrote this critical reply, analysing the book page by page and providing a hugely valuable & detailed critique based on his own experiences. The spat between the two ended in a duel in which De Segur was wounded. As an appendix to the work are listed the general orders for the campaign.

We are delighted to once again make available the great controversy of the Russian Campaign. (Please note that copies were originally printed on very thin paper which causes some off-setting in our edition.) 1 vol, 508 pgs 2011 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

1-201710 Grant, Charles WELLINGTON 1813: The Vittoria Campaign 35 pages of color plates by Bob Marrion plus color maps of the key engagements.

In May 1813 Wellington bade farewell to Portugal and the Allied army marched into Spain. Wellington's advance continuously outflanked the French Army of King Joseph and Marshal Jordan, causing them to fall back to the east. On 21 June 1813 the French made a stand at Vittoria. In a bold and imaginative attack Wellington launched the Allies at the French, turning both flanks of the enemy.

By evening Wellington had achieved a resounding victory and the French were in rout. The destruction of the French army was only prevented by a night of plundering as the Allies fell on the baggage of the French army bearing the loot of Spain. A month later Marshal Soult, who had replaced Joseph and Jordan, launched a counter attack with a reorganized French army. After driving the Allies back through the Pyrenees passes at Maya and Roncesvalles the French were defeated by Wellington at Sorauren and retreated back into France.

On 31 August San Sebastian was stormed and the French garrison finally surrendered on 8 September. Wellington was poised to invade France. 1 vol, 192 pgs 2013 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-198040 Grant, Charles S WELLINGTON 1812 - The Sieges of Cuidad Rodrigo, Badajoz & Burgos and the Battle of Salamanca Well illustrated throughout with almost 30 Bob Marrion color uniform plates.

The early months of 1812 saw Wellington successfully besiege and storm both Cuidad Rodrigo and Badajoz securing his lines of communication and opening up the route into Spain. Immediately facing him was Marmont's Army of Portugal. After a series of maneuvers, on 22 July Wellington saw his chance and in one of his most famous and brilliant battles he routed the French army at Salamanca. At the end of the month he entered Madrid.

He now decided to follow Marmont's Army but the fortified castle at Burgos would not fall and as news of the movements of other French armies reached him, Wellington decided to withdraw. Falling back to Salamanca and with several French armies coming together he was forced to continue the withdrawal and finished the year back where he had started -- the Portuguese border.

The year that had started so promisingly for the Allies with the storming of Cuidad Rodrigo and Badajoz and the crushing defeat of the French at Salamanca, had gone on to witness the frustration at Burgos and the retreat back almost to Portugal with the breakdown of discipline, at least in parts of the Allied army.

Balanced against this, Wellington's maneuvers had dominated much of Spain with an army that was probably no more than a quarter of the number of French soldiers in the theater of operations. Wellington had not been defeated in battle and his casualties were minimal compared with those of his enemy. Perhaps more significantly the French morale had been shattered by the Allied victory of Salamanca and they would not fight with their old confidence again. 1 vol, 152 pgs 2013 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-211420 Greenwood, Adrian THROUGH SPAIN WITH WELLINGTON: The Letters of Lieutenant Peter Le Mesurier of the 'Fighting Ninth' Gazetted into the 9th Foot as an ensign in 1808, Peter Le Mesurier saw action from the earliest days of the Peninsular War almost to its end. The 'Fighting Ninth' were in the thick of it, and his letters describe nearly every major engagement of the war; the retreat to Corunna, the Walcheren Expedition, the sieges of Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz, Burgos, and San Sebastian, and the battles of Salamanca, Vitoria, the Nivelle, and the Nive.

The correspondence of this young officer provides a unique and fresh insight into the campaigns of Moore and Wellington against Napoleon. They also show the transformation of the boy into the man. He suffers retreats and celebrates victories, witnesses sieges, rape and plunder, and falls in love; his letters are spiced with fascinating asides, wry humor, rich period detail, some very human fears and admissions, and the casual understatement of the British officer.

Any unpublished letters from the conflict are scarce, but such an extensive unpublished collection is rare indeed. With background information and commentary provided by expert Adrian Greenwood and meticulously footnoted, this is a worthy addition to the literature of the Napoleonic Wars. 1 vol, 270 pgs 2016 UK, AMBERLEY

1-970016 Griffon de Pleineville, Natalia; illust by Florent Vincent CHICLANA-BARROSA - 5 March 1811, The Eagles in Andalusia FORGOTTEN BATTLES series: February 1811. Marshal Victor had besieged the Spanish city of Cadiz for a year. Generals Manuel de Lapena and Thomas Graham, at the head of Spanish and British troops, disembarked at Algeciras and at Tarifa and led their men towards Chiclana in order to attack the French lines from the rear. On 5 March, the opposing armies ran into each other on ground overlooked by the Bermeja and the Barrosa towers; the latter giving its name to the battle.

The French troops commanded by Generals Villatte, Leval, and Ruffin fell back before the Allied army. The fighting was fierce and the 8e Regiment of the Line lost its golden wreathed Eagle. Using French, Spanish and British sources and archives, drawing on numerous eyewitness accounts, the author captures the views of both sides of the conflict and provides a new and objective narrative in fascinating detail of this long-forgotten and little-known battle of the Peninsular War. 60 b/w & color illust & maps etc. 1 vol, 112 pgs 2012 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE EDITIONS

1-196710 Henderson, James Frigates, Sloops & Brigs Originally published in two volumes, this book is a bargain for all who want the factual low-down on Nelson's navy.

Admiral Nelson's most frequent cry was for more frigates. Though not ships of the line these fast and powerful warships were the 'eyes of the fleet'. They enabled admirals to find where the enemy lay and his likely intentions, as well as patrolling vital trade routes and providing information from far-flung colonies. Together with their smaller cousins, the sloops and brigs of the Royal Navy, they performed a vital function.

Generally commanded by ambitious young men, these were the ships that could capture enemy prizes and earn their officers and men enough prize-money to set them up for life. The fictional characters Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey hardly surpassed some of the extraordinary deeds of derring-do and tragedy described in these pages.

1-192340 Hofschroer, Peter translator, editor On Wellington A Critique of Waterloo By Carl von Clausewitz Clausewitz, the Western world's most renowned military theorist, participated in the Waterloo campaign as a senior staff officer in the Prussian army. His appraisal, offered here in an up-to-date and readable translation, criticized the Duke of Wellington's actions. Lord Liverpool sent his translation of the manuscript to Wellington, who pronounced it a lying work. The translated commentary was quickly buried in Wellington's private papers, where it languished for a century and a half. Now published for the first time in English, Hofschroer brings Clausewitz's critique back into view with thorough annotation and contextual explanation

Peter Hofschroer, long recognized as a leading scholar of the Napoleonic Wars, shows how the Duke prevented the account's publication during his lifetime-a manipulation of history so successful that almost two centuries passed before Clausewitz's work reemerged, finally permitting a reappraisal of key events in the campaign. In addition to translating and annotating Clausewitz's critique, Hofschroer also includes an order of battle and an extensive bibliography.

After an initial success, the expedition stalled and as the lethargic military commander, Lord Chatham, was at loggerheads with the opinionated senior naval commander, Sir Richard Strachan, troops were dying of a mysterious disease termed 'Walcheren fever.' Almost all the campaign's 4,000 dead were victims of disease.

The Scheldt was evacuated and the return home was followed by a scandalous Parliamentary Inquiry. Walcheren fever cast an even longer shadow. Six months later 11,000 men were still registered sick. In 1812, Wellington complained that the constitution of his troops was 'much shaken with Walcheren.' Includes 16 pages of b/w plates 1 vol, 224 pgs 2012 UK, Pen & Sword

1-210230 Howard, Martin R DEATH BEFORE GLORY: The British Soldier in the West Indies in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars 1793-1815 Study of the British army's campaigns in the West Indies during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic period (1793-1815) and of the extraordinary experiences of the soldiers who served there. Rich in sugar, cotton, coffee, and slaves, the region was a key to British prosperity and it was perhaps even more important to her greatest enemy - France. Yet, until now, the history of this vital theater of the Napoleonic Wars has been seriously neglected. Focuses on the human experience of the men - the climate and living conditions, the rations and diet, military discipline and training, the treatment of the wounded, and the impact of disease. 1 vol, 240 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-203990 Hughes, Ben THE BRITISH INVASION OF THE RIVER PLATE: 1806-1807 -- How the Redcoats Were Humbled and a Nation Was Born In 1806 a British expeditionary force captured Buenos Aires and Britain was sucked into a costly campaign on the far side of the world. The Spaniards were humbled on the battlefield, Montevideo was taken by storm, but the campaign ended in disaster for the British when 6000 redcoats and riflemen surrendered following a bloody battle fought in the streets of the Argentine capital.

So ended one of the most humiliating - and neglected - episodes of the entire Napoleonic Wars for the British army. In The British Invasion of the River Plate Ben Hughes tells the story of this forgotten war in graphic detail. His account is based on research carried out across two continents, and it draws on contemporary newspaper reports, official documents and the memoirs, letters and journals of the men who were there.

1-214741 Hussey, John WATERLOO: THE CAMPAIGN OF 1815: Volume I: From Elba to Ligny and Quatre Bras The first of two groundbreaking volumes on the Waterloo campaign, this book is based upon a detailed analysis of sources old and new in four languages. It highlights the political stresses between the Allies, and their resolution; it studies the problems of feeding and paying for 250,000 Allied forces assembling in Belgium during the 'undeclared war', and how a strategy was thrashed out. Includes 16 pages of plates.

It studies the neglected topic of how the slow and discordant Allies beyond the Rhine hampered the plans of Blucher and Wellington, thus allowing Napoleon to snatch the initiative from them. Napoleon's operational plan is analyzed (and Soult's mistakes in executing it). Accounts from both sides help provide a vivid impression of the fighting on the first day, 15 June, and the volume ends with the joint battles of Ligny and Quatre Bras the next day. 1 vol, 736 pgs 2017 UK, GREENHILL BOOKS

1-214742 Hussey, John WATERLOO: THE CAMPAIGN OF 1815: Volume II: From Waterloo to the Restoration of Peace in Europe The concluding volume of this work provides a fresh description of the climatic battle of Waterloo placed in the context of the whole campaign. It discusses several vexed questions: Blucher's intentions for the battle, Wellington's choice of site, his reasons for placing substantial forces at Hal, the placement of Napoleon's artillery, who authorized the French cavalry attacks, Grouchy's role on 18 and 19 June, Napoleon's own statements on the Garde's formation in the final attack, and the climactic moment when the Prussians reached Wellington's troops near la Belle Alliance.

Close attention is paid to the negotiations that led to the capitulation of Paris, and subsequent French claims. The allegations of Las Cases and later historians that Napoleon's surrender to Captain Maitland of the Bellerophon amounted to entrapment are also examined. After a survey of the peace settlement of 1815, the book concludes with a masterly chapter reviewing the whole story of the 1815 campaign. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2017 UK, GREENHILL BOOKS

1-194861 Jouineau, Andre and Jean-Marie Mongin FRENCH CUIRASSIERS 1800 - 1815 #14 in the Officers & Soldiers series.

The fourteenth work in the 'Officers and Soldiers' collection is dedicated to the French Cuirassiers from the Consulate to the Second Restoration.

Dating back to the Heavy Cavalry of the Ancient Regime, the first Cuirassier regiments were really created in France in 1801 during the Consulate. This new type of cavalry turned out to be one of the essential arms of Napoleon's tactics.

First twelve, then fourteen, regiments were created. Together with the two regiments of Carabiniers already formed, they constituted the shock troops of the Napoleonic Wars. For more than ten years, they took part in all Napoleon's campaigns: from Austerlitz to Waterloo and from the valleys of Spain to the distant Russian steppes.

Andre Jouineau, figurines maker and collector, has worked with Histoire & Collections for more than 18 years. His uniforms plates, which have been fully carried out using data processing, have made him a pioneer in this field.

Jean-Marie Mongin, previous chief editor of Uniformes and Tradition Magazine, puts all his knowledge of military history into these drawing texts and captions. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2011 FRANCE, HISTOIRE & COLLEC

3-14220 Lachouque, Henry NAPOLEON'S WAR IN SPAIN In the early 1800s, the Spanish Ulcer was for the French what the Eastern Front was for the Germans in 1941-45 or Vietnam was for the Americans. This book devotes itself to the war in Spain and ignores the campaigns in Portugal, where the French suffered their worst defeats. The treatment is strongly pro-French but told with fine narration and balance. Each chapter covers a single year of the struggle.

The authors stress three major contributing factors to French defeat: the inability of the senior generals to work under King Joseph of Spain, Napoleon's brother and appointee; the popular hostility to French rule; and Wellington's great tactical skills. There has been no important French work devoted to this struggle published since the 1820s.

1-207470 Lapray, Olivier BATTLE OF MARENGO: The First Victory of the Century On 14 June 1800, during the second Italian campaign, Napoleon narrowly won the battle of Marengo (Piedmont). This famous battle opposed 28,000 French soldiers against 31,000 Austrian soldiers under the command of General Melas.

At first, the French had to retreat nearly seven miles back. Melas, believing that victory was assured, left the command to a subordinate and returned to Alessandria. The adversary's delay thus allowed Napoleon to concentrate his forces, especially the corps of General Desaix, which arrived as a reinforcement. Around 5:00 in the afternoon, the violent French counterattack forced the Austrians to retreat, although claiming the life of Desaix, the hero of the day.

This great victory lead to the French occupation of Lombardy and reinforced the authority of Napoleon in France. 1 vol, 144 pgs 2014 FRANCE, HISTOIRE AND COLLECTIONS

1-209370 Leggiere, Michael Napoleon and the Struggle for Germany - The Franco-Prussian War of 1813 This is the first comprehensive history of the campaigns that determined control of Germany following Napoleon's catastrophic defeat in Russia. Michael Leggiere reveals how, in the spring of 1813, Prussia, the weakest of the Great Powers, led the struggle against Napoleon as a war of national liberation. Using German, French, British, Russian, Austrian and Swedish sources, he provides a panoramic history ranging from the mobilization of the belligerents, strategy and operations to coalition warfare, diplomacy and civil-military relations. He examines the strategy, military operations and battles in Germany from Napoleon's initial campaign which drove the Russo-Prussian army to the banks of the Oder and the verge of defeat to the epic four-day Battle of Nations at Leipzig and Napoleon's retreat to France. This study not only highlights the breakdown of Napoleon's strategy in 1813, but constitutes a fascinating study in coalition warfare, international relations, and civil-military relations.

1-190150 Letrun, Ludivic French Infantry Flags: 1789-1815 As witnesses to History's ups and downs, flags - and in particular infantry flags - reveal how short-lived ideas and their symbols can be when they are the unfortunate victims of auto-da-fes thought up by different regimes. Today museums have only managed to preserve a few rare specimens and the period texts and documents are mostly incomplete. This is particularly true for the Army of Italy flags, those of the volunteers and those of the half-brigades from 1794-1803, which are still mainly unknown to this day.

Faced with this type of major difficulty, and if a coherent picture of the flags is to be painted, a whole gamut of particularly inescapable assumptions has to be made. Nevertheless since historical exactitude does not allow for even the smallest unverifiable interpretations, it is up to us to warn our readers that the flags illustrated here are those that our research has enabled us to reproduce. Each individual regimental history has been established so as to follow the trail these flags left as they changed from regiment to half-brigade. These histories are not always able follow the rank numbering in the corps since there was often no direct association between them. For the reader to find his way around, an asterisk designates a battalion which was in at the foundation of the new regiment, and also shows that this unit's flag was most certainly adopted provisionally.

1-197433 Letrun, Ludovic CHASSEURS A CHEVAL: Volume 3 - 1810-1815 (Officers and Soldiers #21) This third part illustrates the last years of the Empire; dark years which will see our 'Chasseurs' being gobbled up during the Russian disaster. Like a lot of regiments, the Chasseurs A Cheval were swallowed up in the Russian disaster. Phantom regiments were reformed with considerable difficulty in 1813 and 1814.

During the First Restoration, 15 regiments were formed from the debris of the battles in Prussia and in France -- regiments which then took part in the Belgian Campaign and its epilogue at Waterloo. King Louis VXIII dismissed these 15 regiments on 16 July 1815, but it wasn't until the 18th that the Chasseurs a Cheval reappeared in the Royal Army! During this period there was obviously a whole series of uniform changes. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2012

1-202970 Lipscombe, Nick WELLINGTON'S GUNS: The Untold Story of Wellington and His Artillery in the Peninsula and at Waterloo Dismissive, conservative and aloof, Wellington treated his artillery with disdain during the Napoleonic Wars - despite their growing influence on the field of battle. Wellington's Guns exposes, for the very first time, the often stormy relationship between Wellington and his artillery, how the reluctance to modernize the British artillery corps threatened to derail the British push for victory and how Wellington's views on the command and appointment structure within the artillery opened up damaging rifts between him and his men.

At a time when artillery was undergoing revolutionary changes - from the use of mountain guns during the Pyrenees campaign in the Peninsular, the innovative execution of 'danger-close' missions to clear the woods of Hougomont at Waterloo, to the introduction of creeping barrages and Congreve's rockets - Wellington seemed to remain distrustful of a force that played a significant role in shaping tactics and changing the course of the war.

Using extensive research and first-hand accounts, Colonel Nick Lipscombe reveals that despite Wellington's brilliance as a field commander, his abrupt and uncompromising leadership style, particularly towards his artillery commanders, shaped the Napoleonic Wars, and how despite this, the ever-evolving technology and tactics ensured that the extensive use of artillery became one of the hallmarks of a modern army. 1 vol, 472 pgs 2013 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-193490 Liscombe, Nick PENINSULAR WAR ATLAS, THE - Revised Edition The Peninsular War is one of the defining campaigns of the British Army and sealed its reputation for supreme professionalism, heroic obstinacy and sheer perseverance. It made the reputation of Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington, and acts as the backdrop to the adventures of Bernard Cornwell's fictional hero Richard Sharpe. The British Army, under Sir John Moore and Wellington, ranged across the plains and mountains of Portugal and Spain and into France, taking part in 15 field actions and four bloody sieges, including Salamanca, Vitoria and Badajoz, but this is only part of the picture. The contribution of the Spanish and Portuguese forces is frequently overlooked, but there were a further 25 field actions and 15 sieges in the Iberian peninsula as part of the savage duel between the French occupiers and native inhabitants. In this newly revised edition of The Peninsular War Atlas, Colonel Nick Lipscombe expands upon his comprehensive, non-partisan examination of the conflict with 164 original maps, accompanied by an authoritative text narrating the war. His 34 years of service in the British Army, including postings in both Spain and Portugal, give him a unique perspective on the conflict. With contributions from Professor Charles Esdaile and the present Duke of Wellington as well as the cooperation of the Spanish and Portuguese authorities, this book is the essential topographical guide to the conflict. The Peninsular War Atlas has been published in collaboration with Peninsular War 200, the organisation established 'to commemorate in a spirit of respect to all and malice to none the 40,000 British (including Irish and foreign-auxiliary) service personnel who lost their lives in the Peninsular War of 1808-14'.

After the bloody battle of Maloyaroslavets (see Glory & Empire No. 46), Napoleon was forced to change his plans. The Grand Army now headed back to Smolensk over the same route they came from during the summer over regions unable to provide the supplies they needed.

Platov launched 25,000 men at the thinly-spread French forces, but Davout and Eugene de Beauharnais stopped the Russians with heavy losses in men and equipment. Arriving at Smolensk on November 9, the Grand Army hardly counts more than 40,000 men under arms and was already followed by many disbanded soldiers, fugitives, and civilians. 1 vol, 132 pgs 2013 FRANCE, LCV

In preparing the Russian campaign, Napoleon looked back to the 1708 Swedish invasion of Russia and recognized the potential trap at the Berezina River. He prepared by maintaining a large garrison at Borissov and hedging his bets by placing Schwarzenberg and the Austrians in Minsk where they should have been able to strengthen the Grand Army on its return from Moscow.

Obviously, the events did not go as planned and the survivors of the Moscow occupation very nearly were trapped on the banks of the Berezina river. Yet, the Grand Army emerged from the trap.

1-942056 Martin, Yves GLOIRE & EMPIRE # 56 Napoleon on Elbe:
It must be admitted, Francis I, Emperor of Austria, was right when he prevailed: 'Napoleon is still too close to France and Europe.' For a man of the middle part of Napoleon, Elba is a poor exile. Its problems are those of a tiny principality lost between France and Italy, two countries where the Emperor was, so little time before the monarch.

During the long road that led him to retire, Napoleon takes the extent of French disaffection. Plus it goes south, over the remarks are insulting. Scope first in recognition by the Allies when they entered Paris, the white cockade became the rallying supporters of the Bourbons. Wherever his crew passes, it is worn as a sign of defiance and it is with anger rather than humiliated by the stratagems he had invented to escape the wrath of the crowd he joined his retirement.

If more is needed to bring it down, the conditions of the latter are particularly harsh. The exile gives the exchange is actively involved in his island really needs. But what happens when the terms of the Treaty are not met and that the Emperor is destitute, forced to juggle with ridiculous budgets to cope with daily expenses. The influx of the faithful, although beneficial, obviously complicates things. This does not prevent him from control everything down to the smallest details as he has always done, in a few months revolutionizing the administration of the island and its organization, renovating and adding to its infrastructure as it had never been done in previous centuries.

Worse, rivalries and tensions within French command complicated the situation. The behavior and blunders of Marshal Ney attracted the attention of the English and undermined the surprise of the invasion. 1 vol, 132 pgs 2015 FRANCE, LCV

While a brilliant war chief on the ground, Napoleon had less success with the Navy. France lagged behind England in creating a well-equipped, well-served. and well-ordered Navy. He switched leaders, from Admiral Ganteaume, deemed much too cautious, to Latouche-Treville -- inexperienced, but able to galvanize his men. Alas, the impetuous Admiral failed in August 1804, paving the way for the young Admiral Villeneuve. Although good sailor, he sees only the negative sides and the inadequacies of its wings and proved unable to carry out precise orders he received.

England, however, can count on the enterprising Admiral Nelson, victor of the Battle of the Nile and innovative and daring in action. They met at the Battle of Trafalgar. 1 vol, 132 pgs 2015 FRANCE, LCV

1-942063 Martin, Yves GLOIRE & EMPIRE # 63 Includes: The Grand Army in Russia.

Avec ce dossier, Gloire & Empire oublie pour un temps les illustres campagnes et les glorieux faits d'armes pour se tourner vers des pages plus sombres de l'histoire de l'Empire. En Russie principalement, mais aussi en Espagne et dans maints combats, les soldats de la Grande Armee ont parfois vecu des moments terribles et ceux qui n'ont pu echapper a la captivite ont souvent paye un prix encore plus eleve.

A une epoque ou la vie humaine n'avait guere de valeur, on ne dispose que de grossieres approximations sur les pertes de la campagne de Russie. Sur probablement 617,000 hommes engages dans cette gigantesque operation militaire, combien sont-ils reellement revenus? Les meilleures sources affichent entre 200,000 et 300,000 morts, la moitie au combat, les autres des privations multiples et, bien entendu, du froid et de ses effets. Beaucoup deserterent ou rejoignirent le flot grandissant des refugies qui suivaient avec peine l'armee. On sait peu de chose sur eux. De l'armee proprement dite, apres le retournement des Prussiens et l'abandon des Autrichiens, il reste environ 100 000 hommes retranches au debut du mois de janvier 1813 dans les places fortes de la Vistule.

Parmi les zones d'ombre figure le nombre des prisonniers. Combien etaient-ils? Au moins 150,000 selon Koutouzov, 190 000 pour d'autres... Un recensement tardif et sans doute incomplet, realise a la demande louable d'Alexandre Ier, fait etat de 110,300 captifs dont 38 generaux et au moins 3000 officiers. Plus de la moitie d'entre eux etaient deja morts en fevrier 1813 lors de l'etablissement de cette statistique.

C'est a ces hommes qu'est dedie ce numero de Gloire & Empire qui raconte les souffrances incroyables endurees par les prisonniers de la Grande Armee. Dans l'horreur, elles valent bien les recits des rescapes des effroyables pontons anglais -- auxquels nous consacrons egalement un article -- ou encore les atrocites commises sur l'ile de Cabrera. Pourtant, meme si les captifs ont plutot ete maltraites par des Russes avides de vengeance, beaucoup ont profite de remarquables actes de generosite et certains ont meme fait souche en Russie. Chaque parcours individuel est different, chacun ayant vecu ses propres experiences. L'ensemble laisse neanmoins un gout amer. Ces hommes meritaient-ils leur sort?

Finalement, nous ne savons pas davantage combien d'entre eux sont revenus. Les meilleures sources parlent de 15 a 30,000 hommes. C'est bien peu et cela alourdit encore le bilan de cette desastreuse campagne qu'il aurait ete si facile d'eviter. Retenons des recits rapportes l'effarante intensite des destins individuels. Bizarrement, les campagnes du premier Empire n'ont pas menage les hommes mais, a l'echelle de l'histoire, elles ont favorise le rapprochement des peuples.

The Chasseurs a Cheval de la Garde Imperiale was the Emperor Napoleon's habitual escort and a valuable cavalry reserve in battle. It was a unit formed of light cavalrymen of proven courage but also of outstanding moral fiber who had to serve as an example to the rest of the army.

This book recounts the history of this legendary unit, a unit whose antecedents can be traced back to the first battles won by Napoleon in Italy and to the burning sands of the Egyptian desert. Indeed a unit that paid the price demanded by glory and the ignominy of war, with its blood spilled on the plateaus of Austerlitz, the frozen countryside of Prussia and on the streets of Madrid. Each Chassear a Cheval of the Imperial Guard, like Napoleon, was a hero who had confronted and conquered the fear of death. Their memory continues to inspire the modern would-be hero. 1 vol, 72 pgs 2007 SPAIN, ANDREA PRESS

1-193180 Mikaberidze, Alexander Battle of the Berezina: Napoleon's Great Escape In the winter of 1812, Napoleon's army retreated from Moscow under appalling conditions, hunted by three separate Russian armies, its chances of survival apparently nil. By late November Napoleon had reached the banks of the River Berezina - the last natural obstacle between his army and the safety of the Polish frontier. But instead of finding the river frozen solid enough to march his men across, an unseasonable thaw had turned the Berezina into an icy torrent. Having already ordered the burning of his bridging equipment, Napoleon's predicament was serious enough: but with the army of Admiral Chichagov holding the opposite bank, and those of Kutusov and Wittgenstein closing fast, it was critical. Only a miracle could save him ...

Drawing on contemporary sources (letters, diaries, memoirs) Mikaberidze recreates one of the greatest escapes in military history -- a story often half-told in general histories of the Russian campaign but never before fully explored.

1-204830 Mikaberidze, Alexander THE BURNING OF MOSCOW: Napoleon's Trial by Fire 1812 As soon as Napoleon and his Grand Army entered Moscow, on 14 September 1812, the capital erupted in flames that eventually engulfed and destroyed two thirds of the city. The fiery devastation had a profound effect on the Grand Army, but for thirty-five days Napoleon stayed, making increasingly desperate efforts to achieve peace with Russia.

Then, in October, almost surrounded by the Russians and with winter fast approaching, he abandoned the capital and embarked on the long, bitter retreat that destroyed his army. The month-long stay in Moscow was a pivotal moment in the war of 1812 - the moment when the initiative swung towards the Tsar's armies and spelled doom for the invading Grand Army - yet it has rarely been studied in the same depth as the other key events of the campaign.

Alexander Mikaberidze, in this third volume of his in-depth reassessment of the war between the French and Russian empires, emphasizes the importance of the Moscow fire and shows how Russian intransigence sealed the fate of the French army.

He uses a vast array of French, German, Polish and Russian memoirs, letters and diaries as well as archival material in order to tell the dramatic story of the Moscow fire. Not only does he provide a comprehensive account of events, looking at them from both the French and Russian points of view, but he explores the Russians' motives for leaving, then burning their capital.

Using extensive eyewitness accounts, he paints a vivid picture of the harsh reality of life in the remains of the occupied city and describes military operations around Moscow at this turning point in the campaign. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2014 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-208350 Mikaberidze, Alexander RUSSIAN EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS of the CAMPAIGN of 1807 This crushing defeat of Prussia in 1806, Napoleon marched into Poland to forestall any Russian attempts to come to the aid of their ally. There then followed the bloody battle in a blizzard at Eylau on 8 February 1807, which decimated both armies. Operations resumed in the spring and on 14 June Napoleon wrecked the Russian field army at Friedland. Napoleon and Emperor Alexander met at Tiltsit, and French mastery of northwest Europe was confirmed.

This book brings together dozens of Russian letters, memoirs, and diaries, with authors ranging from the commander-in-chief (Benningsen) to NCOs. We see the brutal conditions of the winter campaign at first hand, and gain fresh insight into the infamous Treaty of Tiltsit and the diplomatic maneuvering that followed it. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2015 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-208290 Mirante, Rand MEDUSA'S HEAD: The Rise and Survival of Joseph Fouche, Inventor of the Modern Police State Hardcover version.

Minister of Police Joseph Fouche was universally distrusted, feared, and hated in his time, but was nevertheless considered indispensable. This biography recounts the chameleonic and astonishing career of Napoleon's security chief, who created the modern police state and wielded immense power that threatened the other main organs of government.

Fouche was one of the most important, fascinating, and controversial figures of the French Revolution, the First Empire, and the Bourbon Restoration. His roles included a priest-in-training who became a radical Jacobin and de-Christianizer; a regicide who cast a dramatic swing vote for Louis XVI's immediate execution; the grim and remorseless 'Butcher of Lyon' mastermind of the conspiracy that sent Robespierre to the guillotine; and the head of Napoleon's police - privy to everyone's secrets, shaping the media, deploying 10,000 informants in Paris alone, and securing funding from the Empire's casinos and brothels.

He was also the enabler of Napoleon's 1799 coup and subsequent repeated betrayer of the Emperor; acting president after Waterloo and traitor to France; Louis XVIII's Minister of Police, in spite of his responsibility for the death of the King's brother; and finally a wealthy but disgraced exile who met an unusual end in Trieste on the Adriatic. 1 vol, 300 pgs 2014 US, ARCHWAY PUBLISHING

1-194670 Moon, Joshua Wellington's Two-Front War: The Peninsular Campaigns, at Home and Abroad, 1808-1814 The book chronicles Wellington's battle with Napoleon abroad and the British bureaucracy at home during the 1808-14 campaigns in the Iberian Peninsula.

Moon argues that the military's outdated promotion system, political maneuvering, and bureaucratic inertia - all subject to public opinion and a hostile press - thwarted Wellington's efforts, almost costing him the victory. Drawing on archival sources in the United Kingdom and at the United States Military Academy, Moon goes well beyond detailing military operations to delve into the larger effects of domestic policies, bureaucracy, and coalition building on strategy.

The book demonstrates the Iberian campaign was won only through the strategic vision and relentless determination of Wellington. Moon's multifaceted examination of the commander and his frustrations offers valuable insight into the complexities of fighting faraway battles under the scrutiny at home of government agencies and the press - issues still relevant today.

1-212300 Morewood, John WATERLOO GENERAL: The Life, Letters and Mysterious Death of Major General Sir William Ponsonby 1772 - 1815 At the Battle of Waterloo Sir William Ponsonby, a man who the Duke of Wellington stated had 'rendered very brilliant and important services and was an ornament to his profession', was killed by French lancers after leading the Union Brigade (the three Dragoon Regiments of the Royals, Iniskillings, and Scots Greys) in a charge that wrecked a French advance that threatened Wellington with defeat. Sir William was a career soldier who had led his regiment in the decisive charge at the Battle of Salamanca and served with great distinction during the Peninsular War. Yet historians have blamed him because the charge at Waterloo got out of hand. Includes 30 illustrations.

Uses family sources, including Sir William's letters, as well as French and German accounts, to restore his reputation and, by shedding new light on the battle, establishes what really happen to him on that fatal afternoon. It is also a biography of a man whose bravery and professionalism distinguished him as one of the outstanding cavalry commanders of the age. 1 vol, 280 pgs 2016 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-202923 Muilwijk, Erwin STANDING FIRM AT WATERLOO This volume deals with the specific role of the Netherlands field army on both days of 17th and 18th June, 1815. In great detail the endeavors, events and the hard fighting of its infantry, cavalry and artillery are described. All this is based on dozens of memoirs by veteran soldiers from Holland, Belgium and Nassau serving together in the Netherlands field army.

Their own words lavishly illustrate and enliven the text. The history presented in this volume adds to the knowledge on the 1815 campaign and the Battle of Waterloo, and shall change the perception on the Netherlands field army. Its men fought brave, showed courage and ultimately firmly stood their ground.

In various chapters this history amongst other shows the important role of Prince Frederik's army corps in the preconceived position south of Halle, while the troops at Waterloo were engaged in battle under the command of Wellington and the Prince of Orange. Sappers cleared the road behind the battlefield to ensure a steady flow of reserve ammunition from Brussels.

The infantry brigade of General van Bijlandt was already in cover behind the reverse slope, well before the French grand battery opened fire and Comte d'Erlon's army corps attacked the position. Throughout the entire battle the Nassau battalion commanded by Captain Busgen formed a vital part of the defense force of Hougoumont. The light cavalry of General Ghigny made several charges on the left wing, after the British cavalry regiments were thrown back in disorder. Colonel von Sachsen-Weimar's Nassau soldiers fought a skirmish battle for the farms of Papelotte and La Haye and the Smohain hamlet, that changed hands during the battle.

The exact circumstances how the Prince of Orange was wounded are presented. And finally the role of General Chasse and his troops is presented in the final stages of the battle, when the Garde Imperiale attacks. Chasse's men were not directly involved, but nonetheless immediately took part in the pursuit at the end of the battle.

In several sidebars this history also examines topics that could not be incorporated in the main narrative, but are nonetheless worthwhile to present. These include the death of General van Merlen, how a single lieutenant recaptured Charleroi on 19th June, who escorted the thousands of French prisoners to Brussels during the battle, whether or not Napoleon used the observatory tower, examples of surgery during the battle, and much more. 1 vol, 240 pgs 2014 NETHERLANDS, SOVEREIGN HOUSE BOOKS

1-207770 Nafziger, George THE END OF EMPIRE: Napoleon's 1814 Campaign The End of Empire continues Nafziger's definitive military studies of the Napoleonic era beginning with the 1812 campaign and progressing through the 1813 campaign. Having suffered a massive reversal of fortunes in Russia Napoleon found himself confronted, in Germany, by the combined forces of Russia, Prussia, and Austria.

After the disaster of Leipzig Napoleon's German allies fell away and he was forced to fall back, beyond the borders of France. Offered a negotiated peace on the basis of a return to the pre-1792 borders, Napoleon chose to continue to fight, trusting in his star. He was, however, desperate for troops and short of horses and cash. Cornered and threatened by three armies invading from the north, northeast, and east, every chance to stop the Allies had to be taken and there was desperate battle after desperate battle.

Of all his campaigns, Napoleon's 1814 campaign was one of his most brilliant. Eventually, after several terrible defeats, the Allies refused to engage him in battle when he confronted them. Instead they pushed their other two armies forward, slowly driving him back as he rushed to block the advance of the other armies on Paris. This strategy proved successful and eventually Napoleon was obliged to abdicate when his marshals refused to fight further.

1-43020 Nafziger, George IMPERIAL BAYONETS: Tactics of the Napoleonic Battery, Battalion and Brigade as Found in Contemporary Regulations New edition, although essentially a reprint of the original edition. It is the definitive work on Napoleonic tactics and a must read for anyone wanting to understand the fundamentals of period tactics.

Imperial Bayonets examines the maneuvering systems of the French, Prussians, Russians, Austrians and British from 1792 to 1815. It studies infantry maneuvers and firepower, cavalry maneuvers, and artillery. Includes 132 illustrations, 94 tables, and 7 charts/graphs.

It provides not only a discussion of every major maneuver of the five major powers, i.e. from line to square, or column, but does time and motion studies of how long it would take to execute those maneuvers and compares them to the other nations. It covers infantry and cavalry maneuvers on this level. It performs an analysis of both musketry effectiveness and artillery effectiveness, providing curves that demonstrate the effectiveness of both. Also covers brigade maneuvers and army marches. 1 vol, 296 pgs 2017 UK, HELION AND COMPANY

1-200720 Popov, Andrei FIRST BATTLE OF POLOTSK On August 17, 1812, the first Russian infantry corps, led by Wittgenstein, attacked the French positions, forcing the French to withdraw. French reinforcements arrived and Oudinot delivered a counter-attack against the center. Oudinot was wounded, and command fell to Laurent St. Cyr

That night, the French and Russians kept their positions, but when the morning dawned, St. Cyr launched a major offensive, crushing the left flank and turning the center. Wittgenstein ordered a cavalry counter-attack that halted the French momentum and the Russians withdrew to the banks of the river Drissa.

This book combs Russian sources for accounts of the battle, shedding new light about French Russian operations before, during, and after the battle. 1 vol, 173 pgs 2012 FRANCE, LCV

1-199090 Rawson, Andrew PENINSULAR WAR: A Battlefield Guide A new battlefield guide to the Peninsular War is long overdue. Modern development in Spain and Portugal has encroached on many of the battlefields, new research has questioned established interpretations of events, and there is a broader appreciation of the parts played by all the armies involved - the French on one side and the Spanish, Portuguese and British on the other.

Andrew Rawson, in this highly illustrated and practical guide, offers a wide-ranging, up-to-date and balanced account of this prolonged conflict, and he guides the reader and the visitor across the terrain over which the armies marched and fought. He reconstructs the major battles in graphic detail, and provides practical tours of the major battlefields and campaigns. Also included are sections examining the armies, the military organization and tactics of the time, and the role of the Spanish guerrillas. 1 vol, 352 pgs 2009 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-203870 Riley, Jonathon 1813: EMPIRE AT BAY: The Sixth Coalition and the Downfall of Napoleon 1813 was a critical year in the world war that ended with the downfall of Napoleon. In a series of major battles, the converging armies of the Sixth Coalition drove the French forces back. This was the year in which the balance of power tipped decisively against Napoleon's First Empire.

This book covers the operations in central Europe and Spain, where the allies broke French power, humbled Napoleon, and laid the foundations for the Congress of Vienna and the European settlement that endured for the next fifty years.

In particular, he focuses on the operation of the Sixth Coalition - Austria, Prussia, Russia, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Sweden, Spain, and the smaller German states. This was the prototype of all uneasy modern coalitions, with their troubled command relationships, disagreements on strategy and operations, and clashing political ambitions. At the same time, he reassesses the performance of Napoleon himself who was also an alliance commander, for his armies included not only Frenchmen but also Poles, Danes, Italians, Germans, and a host of other contingents.

In graphic detail he covers the 1813 campaigns, which have received less attention than those of 1812 and 1814/15 in spite of the fact that all the decisive moments came in 1813 - save for one: Waterloo. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2013 UK, PEN AND SWORD

1-66693 Santiago, Francisco TOULOUSE 1814 Battle of Toulouse was one of the final battles of the Napoleonic Wars, four days after Napoleon's surrender of the French Empire to the nations of the Sixth Coalition. Having pushed the demoralized and disintegrating French Imperial armies out of Spain in a difficult campaign the previous autumn, the Allied British-Portuguese and Spanish army under the Marquess of Wellington pursued the war into southern France in the spring of 1814.

Toulouse, the regional capital, proved stoutly defended by Marshal Soult. One British and two Spanish divisions were badly mauled in bloody fighting on 10 April, with Allied losses exceeding French casualties by 1,400. As Wellington pulled back to reorganize his shattered units, Soult held the city for an additional day before orchestrating an escape from the town with his entire army.

Wellington's entry on the morning of 12 April was acclaimed by a great number of French Royalists, validating Soult's earlier fears of potential fifth column elements within the city. That afternoon, the official word of Napoleon's abdication and the end of the war reached Wellington. Soult agreed to an armistice on 17 April. 1 vol, 110 pgs 2014 SPAIN, ALMENA

This fateful battle closes the circle that began in Bailen on July 19, 1808, followed with 23 November in Tudela, and ultimately ended in Ucles. Afterwards, and for at least six months, the Central Army wandered like a lost soul to return to reorganize, and ultimately, lead to a revitalized Spanish force. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 SPAIN, ALMENA

1-207750 Simms, Brendan THE LONGEST AFTERNOON: The 400 Men Who Decided the Battle of Waterloo An account of the 400 heroic Hanoverians fighting under the English flag who held the line at Waterloo.

Neither commander at Waterloo could have predicted that the battle would be decided by the Second Light Battalion, King's German Legion, which was given the deceptively simple task of defending the Haye Sainte farmhouse, a crucial crossroads on the way to Brussels.

The book recounts how these 400-odd riflemen beat back wave after wave of French infantry until finally forced to withdraw, but only after holding up Napoleon for so long that he lost the overall contest. Their actions alone decided the most influential battle in European history.

Drawing on previously untapped eye-witness reports for accurate and vivid details of the course of the battle, Simms captures the grand choreography and pervasive chaos of Waterloo: the advances and retreats, the death and the maiming, the heroism and the cowardice. He describes the gallant fighting spirit of the French infantrymen, who clambered over the bodies of their fallen comrades as they assaulted the heavily fortified farmhouse - and whose bravery was only surpassed by that of their opponents in the Second Light Battalion.

Motivated by opposition to Napoleonic tyranny, dynastic loyalty to the King of England, German patriotism, regimental camaraderie, personal bonds of friendship, and professional ethos, the battalion suffered terrible casualties and fought tirelessly for many long hours, but refused to capitulate or retreat until the evening, by which time the Prussians had arrived on the battlefield in large numbers.

In reorienting Waterloo around the Haye Sainte farmhouse, Simms gives us a riveting new account of the famous battle-an account that reveals, among other things, that Napoleon came much closer than is commonly thought to winning it. A heroic tale of 400 soldiers who changed the course of history, The Longest Afternoon will become an instant classic of military history.

1-193190 Sinclair, Joseph Soldier of the Seventy-First: From De La Plata to Waterloo 1806-1815 This remarkable memoir was first published in Edinburgh in 1819 and has withstood the test of time. One cannot improve on Sir Charles Oman's description of the book as: 'the work of a man of superior education, who had enlisted in a moment of pique and humiliation to avoid facing at home the consequences of his own conceit and folly. The author wrote from the ranks, yet was so different in education and mental equipment from his comrades that he does not take their vies and habits for granted'.

The reader receives the narrative of an intelligent observer, describing the behavior of his regiment as it traveled the globe. His account covers Whitelock's disastrous South American adventure in 1806, the Peninsular War, the Walcheren Expedition and the Battle of Waterloo. For the first time, Joseph Sinclair has been unmasked as the author of the memoir, thanks to new research work by Stuart Reid. 1 vol, 160 pgs 2010 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

This second volume of the woes of the Germans in Spain concentrates on those unfortunate enough to have been thrown into the mincing machine of Catalonia and, in particular, the worst-managed operations of the entire peninsular war: the French sieges of Girona. This city was to become the grave of almost the entire German contingent and many others besides.

Extracts from the diaries of participants in this grim fiasco give a totally chilling glimpse into the horrors of siege warfare. In contrast, reports of the operations of Spanish regiments, who acted together with Royal Naval support of the eastern coast of Spain open a window onto the world of highly mobile raids into the French lines of communication there, which helped tie down many thousands of French troops, who should have been conquering the remaining free areas of southern and eastern Spain.

The disastrous advance to Moscow and the subsequent retreat irreparably damaged Napoleon's military power and prestige and resulted one of the most celebrated catastrophes of in all military history.

1-14070 Smith, Digby (aka Von Pivka, Otto) NAVIES OF THE NAPOLEONIC ERA The period of turmoil that preceded and marked the Napoleonic era caused an expansion in the navies of Europe and the United States. Naval tactics were evolving too, as the old system of individual ships and captains was replaced by true navies, governed by a hierarchy and working together as a force. The book falls into three parts: Part One: The Ships and the Men describes ship construction, rigging, sail plans and rating system, life at sea, naval tactics and the balance of naval forces from the outbreak of war in 1792.

Part Two: The Engagements describes in detail, in chronological order, the individual actions divided into the three major wars - The War of the First Coalition 1792-1797, The War of the Second Coalition 1798-1802 and The Napoleonic Wars 1803-1815. Part Three: The National Navies gives the strength of fleets at various times, the organization and training of individual navies, and also detailed descriptions of the uniforms worn at different periods. Appendices give precise details of ship losses by the major navies in the periods 1793-1802 and 1803-1815, a glossary of British naval terminology and a bibliography. Detailed battle plans of major engagements, line drawings of construction details and sixty photographs complement this authoritative work that will appeal to all those interested in maritime and military history.

1-14080 Smith, Digby (aka Von Pivka, Otto) ARMIES OF THE NAPOLEONIC ERA Armies of the Napoleonic Era provides a complete overview of the tactics, organisation, uniforms, equipment, weapons and actions fought during those dynamic years 1792-1815, when revolutionary France reshaped Europe before being forced back into a more conventional pattern of life.

Digby Smith has studied first class source data from many European museums, archives, numerous regimental histories, contemporary official handbooks and private diaries, and has distilled this mass of information into a work covering all the standing armies of the Napoleonic era. Technical data on the artillery of the various states include the chemical make-up of gunpowders, fuzes and incendiary bombs; the dimensions, performances and effects of cannon, howitzers and mortars, shot, shell and canister; and the dimensions, calibre and performance of muskets, carbines, rifles and pistols.

The tactics of artillery, cavalry and infantry-are explained and each nation has its own section in which uniform development and regimental history are described. A brief summary of the campaigns and actions in which that nation was involved is also included. An appendix gives an overall summary of all battles and major clashes between 1792-1815. A wide selection of illustrations and diagrams complements this unique work, which will be of incalculable value as a reference work to serious students of the period, modelers and wargamers.

1-972004 Spring, Laurence 004 COMBAT: French Guardsman vs Russian Jaeger 1812-14 The Russian Jaeger regiments and Napoleon's Young Guard clashed repeatedly during the campaigns of 1812-14. The Russian Jaeger were light infantry who gained enormous experience and prestige during the struggle to rid Europe of Napoleon's armies, while the Young Guard was expanded to become the main strike force of the French field armies. In appalling winter conditions in 1812, the Young Guard turned to confront their opponents, including Jaeger forces, at Krasnyi. In the face of constant bombardment, Young Guard regiments held off the Russians, covering the retreat of large parts of Napoleon's forces. They clashed again at Leipzig in 1813 and then again in the bitter cold at Craonne in 1814, where horrendous casualties finally told on the newly formed Young Guard units pitched into an attack upon Russian Jaeger regiments. Putting the reader in the shoes of the ordinary soldiers of both sides, this absorbing book traces the evolving trial of strength between Russia's Jaeger arm and France's Young Guardsmen at the height of the Napoleonic Wars 1 vol, 80 pgs 2013 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

1-197170 Street, George THE ARMY OF THE KINGDOM OF WESTPHALIA 1807-1813 Another terrific, well-illustrated book from Partizan Press.

The Kingdom of Westphalia lasted for just over six years and was one of the countries that Napoleon formed so as to make up a 'cordon sanitaire' to the east of France. It was created from areas that had a tradition of fighting on the English or Prussian side in war and would therefore not necessarily take to changing sides. Napoleon placed his brother Jerome on the throne and recommended that French personnel be used in key positions to counter this. However Jerome attempted to trust his subjects and succeeded to some degree. After a shaky start, the Kingdom produced some troops with good fighting spirit and was amongst the best of the German client armies. It was only really let down when the regiments simply dissolved when the Allies over-ran the country, but this is very understandable.

The Army was not large, consisting of, at most, nine infantry and six cavalry regiments, four light infantry battalions, six artillery companies, and a Royal Guard. It was used to form the complete VIII Corps of the Grande Armee in 1812. Jerome was a bit of a dandy and loved to create 'showy' uniforms and so some of the uniforms described in this book are very elaborate and some of the nicest from the period. 1 vol, 152 pgs 2011 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-TPS14 Tohver, Lembert TURNING POINT SIMULATIONS: Valmy Campaign 1792 Valmy is little known. No big-name, famous generals were there, with the most status going to the father of the Kellermann who would lead a cavalry charge at Marengo a generation later.
Yet, Napoleon himself made that father an honorary Marshal of the Empire, with the title, Duke of Valmy. Because Napoleon knew that, put simply, Valmy could have marked the end of the French Revolution.

The Valmy Campaign is one of the turning points of history... the end of the old quaint style of warfare under Kings and the beginning of the mass levies begun in the French Republic.
It pitted the unproven revolutionary armies against the troops of Prussia, still living with the reputation gained under Frederick the Great, and aided by a coalition of Austrians, Hessians, and French Royalists... an army headed for Paris to put down the revolt once and for all.

1-202620 Toorenvliet, Henk SPLENDOUR REVISITED: King Joachim Murat's Colourful Army - The Neapolitan Army 1808-1815 Joachim Murat was one of those larger-than-life characters that crop up throughout history. He had a humble start in life and took a chance for adventure when he first joined the army. He again took a risk giving support to General Bonaparte in Paris in 1795 and rode on his coattails to become the most brilliant of contemporary cavalry generals, husband to one of Bonaparte's sisters, and eventually King of Naples before, ultimately but tragically, attempting to free himself from Napoleon's influence and unite all of Italy. This book outlines his life and charts his progress from birth in Gascony to death before a firing squad in Italy.

However, Murat was not only a great general, he was one of history's greatest dandies who not only wore some fantastic uniforms of his own, but designed them for his Neapolitan troops. The book describes many of these uniforms and illustrates them using lead figures painted in fantastic detail by the author.

This book provides a concise but full history of this remarkable man and will enable those interested in the Naples Army from 1808 to 1815 to see the full glory of their uniforms.

2-34630 Uffindell, Andrew EAGLE'S LAST TRIUMPH: Napoleon's Victory at Ligny Napoleon won his final victory on 16th June 1815 at Ligny, shortly before suffering a crushing defeat at Waterloo. Facing two enemy armies - under Wellington and Blucher - he aimed his main attack against Blucher's Prussians at Ligny and diverted Wellington's attention by engaging his forward elements at Quatre Bras.

The Eagle's Last Triumph provides an examination of these neglected early campaigns, with a description of the fighting and eyewitness testimony. The author shows just how close Napoleon came to winning a crushing victory at the start of the campaign. He also shows Blucher was unhorsed and nearly captured in the evening of Ligny - and how this could have had a decisive impact on subsequent events.

Provides a cogent explanation of why Napoleon, victorious at Ligny, met with defeat two days later. Includes eight pages of plates and 20 maps. 1 vol, 272 pgs 2015 US, CASEMATE

1-208830 Vandeleur, John WITH WELLINGTON'S OUTPOSTS: The Peninsular and Waterloo Letters of John Vandeleur John Vandeleur's letters home to his parents are a lively and engaging account of active service during the Napoleonic Wars, recounting everything from day-to-day life on campaign to the experience of pitched battle at Vitoria and Waterloo.

As first a light infantryman and then a light cavalryman, Vandeleur was frequently on the outposts of Wellington's forces, in frequent contact with the French and often obliged to live a rough-and-ready lifestyle as a result. The conditions that he endured, and the camaraderie that sustained him, are vividly recounted in this fascinating collection - previously only available in an extremely rare private publication over a century ago.

Enhanced with contemporary documents, and with expert editing and commentary by Andrew Bamford, this is an outstanding contribution to our understanding of the Peninsular War and the Waterloo campaign. 1 vol, 224 pgs 2015 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

1-210260 various LA COMPAGNE DE 1814 At the end of 1813, France was for the first time, ever since the battle of Valmy in 1792, really threatened in its integrity, identity, and national territory. Despite his strategic genius, Napoleon faced shortages of men and material. He still had the choice for an honorable peace -- roughly the borders of pre-empire France and his throne.

For the Emperor, who wanted to keep Italy, Westphalia, and Holland, it was an insult. He still believed in his luck and genius, and risked all. for all, with courage, panache, and determination. And indeed, if one does not know the outcome of this story, the 1814 campaign of France was one of the most beautiful in terms of strategy and the art of war.

Faced with 400,000 Austrian, Prussian, Russian, and Swedish soldiers, Napoleon crafted a series of small battles that more often than not ended in French victory. Yet the preponderance of coalition soldiers proved too large a challenge to overcome, and Napoleon abdicated on April 4, 1814 at Fontainebleau.

1-204720 Wareham, Tom FRIGATE COMMANDER Based on the private journal of Lieutenant - and then Captain - Graham Moore, a naval officer serving during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Moore's journal gives a unique and detailed account of what life was like for a serving naval officer. In particular it reveals the problems an officer had in managing the crew of a frigate, maintaining discipline and turning his ship into an efficient man of war.

Moore was one of the navy's 'star captain', serving continuously as a frigate commander between 1793 and 1804. His early career took him to Newfoundland, and then, as a captain, he served with Sir William Sidney Smith's squadron operating on the north coast of France. He was present during the Naval Mutiny at Spithead in 1797, and helped to destroy the French fleet off Ireland in 1798. His most famous action occurred in September 1804, when his squadron engaged and captured a Spanish frigate squadron carrying a fortune in treasure. The following year his frigate, HMS Indefatigable, was involved in the opening of the Trafalgar campaign.

1-16830 Weller, Jac WELLINGTON IN THE PENINSULA, 1808-1814 This classic account of Wellington's tactics and strategy in the Peninsular War is one of the best single-volume works ever written on the epic campaign.

Jac Weller covers all the battles with the French in which Wellington was involved. Talavera, Busaco, Salamanca and Vitoria are among the famous battles that he brings to life once more, with the aid of meticulous research, extensive visits to and photographs of the battlefields themselves, and an unwavering ability to cut a clear path through tangled military events.

Wellington in the Peninsula brilliantly demonstrates how a great commander finally achieved victory after six years of battle against Napoleon's army. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2012 UK, FRONTLINE BOOKS

The historical battle involved wave after wave of frontal attacks by both sides, focusing on the Russian redoubts. However, the game will show all the options available to Napoleon and Kutuzov, including some not attempted historically. The French player has several possible lines of attack and the Russian player must try to anticipate and counter them all. The tactical interaction of Napoleonic infantry, cavalry and artillery is also emphasized, including cavalry charges and squares. This makes for exciting and tense gaming.

Movement and combat are resolved within areas. The game plays using the fast-paced Move-Move-Battle sequence seen in Shiloh. Players activate leaders to command divisions of the same corps. Game time is 3-4 hours. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2012 US, COLUMBIA GAMES

1-OSG205 Zucker, Kevin NAPOLEON AGAINST RUSSIA: Wargame This wargame covers five battles from the critical phase of the Campaign, when the Russian Army finally gave Napoleon the decisive battles he so greatly desired. His first maneuver starts out well-with the French poised to slip into Smolensk behind the Russians. However, the opportunity to bring an end to the campaign will remain unfulfilled. After that, Moscow became the default destination of the Grande Armee.

DESCRIPTION
Library of Napoleonic Battles Series: 480 meters per hex, 1 hour per turn, 400-800 men per strength point. Each Approach to Battle game lasts about 22 turns. The Full campaign links the individual battles.

COMPONENTS
Three 22x34-inch maps and one 17x22-inch map; 560 counters; 100 cards; 2 rulebooks; and 15 player aid cards.

BATTLES

Smolensk, A Battle Postponed, 16-17 August
When he recognized that the enemy had withdrawn into the city, the Emperor's plan was stymied. He either had to seize Smolensk on the 16th, without waiting for the arrival of the entire army, or cross the Dneiper River east of Smolensk. Instead he waited for the Russians to make a mistake, and gave them time to pull out along the Moscow road.

Valutino, Rearguard Action, 18 August
When the Russians did give him an opportunity to catch the First Army disunited after a confused night march, Napoleon had already returned to Smolensk, expecting nothing more than a rearguard action. Hence he was not on the scene to coordinate the actions of his Marshals, who, left to themselves, were unable to crystallize a victory out of the opportunity.

Shevardino, Fight for the Redoubt, 5-6 September
The preliminary battle opened with the arrival of the French cavalry who immediate attacked Konovnytsyn. On the 6th, more French forces arrived including the IV Corps and the Polish Corps. The French captured the Shevardino redoubt at a cost of 4,000-5,000 French and 6,000 Russian casualties.

Borodino, The Russian Army is Saved, 7-8 September
In the climactic battle, Napoleon has been criticized for making a simple frontal assault. With our large map the French player will have plenty of maneuver room to try and outflank the Russian army to the south, or even to the north. He will also have the option of attacking the north flank as Kutusov expected.

Maloyaroslavets, The Retreat Goes Awry, 23-24 October
Trying to secure a bridge over the Luzha River, the Italians of Eugene's IV Corps lost about 5,000 and the Russians about 6,000 men as the town changed hands eight times. Except for Davout, all the French marshals advocated a return to the main highway to Smolensk, through the depleted zone, a detour that doomed the Army. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2015 US, OSG

1-OSG207 Zucker, Kevin 1809 NAPOLEON'S QUAGMIRE: The Peninsular War Part 2 -- The Campaign in Extremadura Boardgame: The Campaign in Extremadura - Medellin, Talavera, Almonacid, and Ocana

The Year 1809 began with Napoleon's departure from the Iberian Peninsula, to face the Austrian threat on the Danube. He left his brother, Joseph, in nominal command of his armies in Spain, as puppet king in Madrid. Fighting flared on several fronts simultaneously, and the French occupation had some successes, notably at the siege of Saragossa, concluded by Marshal Lannes just before his departure to join the Emperor.

In 1809 the French under Joseph nearly mastered the plains of Old and New Castile. However, the Napoleonic magic could not work at such distances (a dispatch sent from Vienna to Madrid, would travel 2400km in 12 to 14 days); when dispatches arrived they were often days or weeks out of date. A series of battles were fought during the course of the year along the approaches to Madrid from Portugal, where the future Duke of Wellington had just arrived with a small British Army to second the Spanish Army of Extremadura. 1 vol, 1 pgs 2017 US, OSG
