New York 1967, Simon & Schuster, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , Fine/Fine condition , 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 318 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------------------------------------- FOR NAPOLEON 1812 was the beginning of the end. The invasion of Russia, the stroke that was to be the crowning glory of his Empire, ended in disaster, defeat and humiliation. Tsar Alexander I, who only six months before had been an undisciplined ally, became the saviour of Europe, the vanquisher of the French. Later historians have judged the Russian expedition to be a monumental folly, doomed from its inception. It is Alan Palmer's thesis that Napoleon's defeat owed less to the commonly accepted factors — the vastness of the Tsar's Empire, the rigours of the Russian winter — than to the personalities involved. Napoleon was defeated because of the gulf between his conception of a quick war, decisively won, and the reality created by an ... Read more

Beginning in Portugal in 1807 and ending at the Battle of Toulouse in the spring of 1814, the campaign in Spain and Portugal is a notable example of a war in which the population of a nation pitted itself against the tyranny of an army of occupation. In fact, this campaign was the precursor of the modern `wars of liberation' Fought over seven long and bloody years, the Peninsular War was a running sore for the French, in terms of both men and money. ........................................................ ...

Lawrence, 1994, University Press of Kansas, US first edition, 6 x 9, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xv, 215 pages, maps, notes, appendices, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------Presenting a significant new interpretation of Napoleonic warfare, Robert M. Epstein argues persuasively that the true origins of modern war can be found in the Franco-Austrian War of 1809. -------------------------------------------Epstein contends that the 1809 war--with its massive and evenly matched armies, multiple theaters of operation, new command-and-control schemes, increased firepower, frequent stalemates, and large-scale slaughter--had more in common with the American Civil War and subsequent conflicts than with the decisive Napoleonic campaigns that preceded it. -------------------------------------------------Epstein examines 1809 in terms of the evolving new systems of recruitment, organization, and command used by both sides. As he shows, ... Read more

Luvaas, Jay, ed./

New York, 1999, Free Press, BOMC edition of the first printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, x, 196 pages.bibliog, index. ...............................In the capstone work of his career, distinguished military historian Jay Luvaas brings together in one volume the military genius of Napoleon. Unlike Sun Tzu or Carl von Clausewitz, Napoleon never wrote a unified essay on his military philosophy. Yet, as one of the world's great strategists and tacticians, he sprinkled wisdom throughout his many and varied writings. Jay Luvaas spent over three decades poring through the thirty-two volumes of Napoleon's correspondence, carefully translating and editing all of his writings on the art of war, and arranging them into seamless essays. The resulting book captures the brilliant commander's thoughts on everything from the preparation of his forces to the organization, planning, and execution of his battles -- all buttressing Napoleon's view that "in war ...

On April 20, 1792, revolutionary France declared war on Austria and began a struggle that, with only two short breaks, was to last until after Waterloo, more than twenty years later. Except for tiny Montenegro, every country in Europe was involved at one time or another, many countries fighting now on France's side, then against her. There were naval actions in every ocean of the world, while on land the fighting ranged from Java in the east to Buenos Aires in the west; from Finland in the north to Cape Town in the south. While Napoleon was the predominant figure, there was also a plethora of distinguished if lesser figu ... Read more

New York 2001, Simon & Schuster, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, xxxii, 350 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. A breakfast on the morning of the battle of' Waterloo, the Emperor Napoleon declared that the Duke of Wellington was a bad general, the British were bad soldiers and that France could not fail to win an easy victory. Forever afterwards, historians have accused, him of gross overconfidence and massively underestimating the caliber of the British commander opposite him. Now Andrew Roberts presents an original, highly revisionist view of the relationship between the two greatest captains of their age and of the great battle that determined European history in the nineteenth century. Napoleon, who was born in the same year as Wellington-1769-fought Wellington by proxy years earlier in the peninsular War, praising his ruthlessness in private while publicly deriding him as a mere "general of sepoys." In contrast, Welling ... Read more

Chicago, 1994, Emperor's Press, first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 7 1/2 x 10 1/2, 352 pages , prof illus with period illus & drgs, many maps, complete orders of battle, notes, index. ------------------------------------------------------- Facing the strong and confident armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden, Napoleon had only the bravery of his conscripts and his own fabled mastery of the battlefield to confuse and shatter his opponents. Napoleon inflicted a heavy defeat on the allies at Dresden, only to have it thrown away in the disaster at Kulm, and by his marshals' failures at the battles of the Katzbach, Gross-Beeren, and Dennewitz. Napoleon at Dresden is a panoramic view of the theater of war in Germany over August 1813. Not only covering these five great battles, it also pays close attention to the smaller battles and skirmishes, often critical for the course of the campaign, but many times only the testing ground of a forgotten regiment. ...

"With Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo seeking to enslave the world, Canadians were forced to take up arms once more. They did so without joy, but with ample courage and resolution. And while the fires of war inflicted terrible sufferings on many Canadians, they also forged a stronger, surer, and more sovereign nation." In 1939 Canada still had strong emotional and political links to Britain. But as the United Kingdom reeled under the Axis onslaught and the prospect of a Nazi-occupied England loomed, Ottawa had to turn to the United States for the economic and strategic aid that might turn the tide of war. ....................................................
