HONDSHOOTE - September 1793
FORGOTTEN BATTLES series: September 1793. The country is in great danger facing a Europe outraged by the execution of King Louis XVI. After the defeat of Neerwinden in March, the armies of the Republic must find the morale and winning ways to confront the coalition Anglo - Austro - Prussian who stands against them. With remarkable energy, Lazare Carnot redeploy armies and entrusts new generals. With one of them, General Houchard must walk Dunkirk besieged by the Confederates under the command of the Duke of York. The battle takes place in the small town of Hondschoote. Here, for the first time, shows a body born the previous year, the National Gendarmerie. Even if it does not preclude the danger the French victory allied forces to abandon the siege of Dunkirk and proves psychologically important because it puts an end to a series of failures. 80 b/w & color illust & maps etc.1 vol, 112 pgs 2007 FRANCE, HISTORIC ONE EDITIONS
