The Art Of Warfare In The Age Of Napoleon


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

" . . . a most illuminating and readable general survey. . . . This book is well organized, well produced, and well written. It belongs among the ten most useful books on this period to the historian and . . . to the general reader." --American Historical Review "This splendid volume fills a gap in the vast outpouring of literature on the military aspects of the era of the French Revolution and Napoleon by combining a description of the major changes and trends of warfare with a comparative discussion of the French military establishment and the armies of its major opponents. . . . As another contribution to 'synthetic' history, it is a very successful exercise." --Military Affairs " . . . a splendid little study which will be of considerable interest both to the general student and specialist. . . . [it] fills a definite need for a survey of the military developments of the period and one can learn a great deal from a close reading of it." --History "A clear, lively, and well-produced survey that relies upon the best scholarship of several languages. . . . " --Library Journal In a comprehensive study of a crucial era in warfare--from the last decades of the ancient régime to Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo--Rothenberg describes the organization, training methods, equipment, tactics, and strategy of France and its adversaries. He also explores staff systems, logistics, fortifications, medical services, and insurgency and counterinsurgency.

Tactics And The Experience Of Battle In The Age Of Napoleon


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

What was it like to be a soldier on a Napoleonic battlefield? What happened when cavalry regiments charged directly at one another? What did the generals do during battle? Drawing on memoirs, diaries, and letters of the time, this dramatic book explores what actually happened in battle and how the participants' feelings and reactions influenced the outcome. Rory Muir focuses on the dynamics of combat in the age of Napoleon, enhancing his analysis with vivid accounts of those who were there--the frightened foot soldier, the general in command, the young cavalry officer whose boils made it impossible to ride, and the smartly dressed aide-de-camp, tripped up by his voluminous pantaloons. This book sheds new light on how military tactics worked by concentrating on the experience of soldiers in the firing line. Muir considers the interaction of artillery, infantry, and cavalry; the role of the general, subordinate commanders, staff officers, and aides; morale, esprit de corps, and the role of regimental officers; soldiers' attitudes toward death and feelings about the enemy; the plight of the wounded; the difficulty of surrendering; and the way victories were finally decided. He discusses the mechanics of musketry, artillery, and cavalry charges and shows how they influenced the morale, discipline, and resolution of the opposing armies. This is a volume that will fascinate all readers with an interest in military history, European history, or the psychology of combat.
