Napoleon's ArmyManufacture Product Number : CBP-5310
Many books have been written about Napoleon and his campaigns, but very little about the soldiers of his armies and of the organization and conditions under which they lived and served. In this classic study, now reissued in paperback, H.C.B. Rogers examines Napoleonís army in terms of its staff systems, its arms, and its supporting services as it existed and changed during the long period that separated the battles of Valmy and Waterloo. This is not another history of Napoleonís campaigns. Apart from the brief narrative of the opening chapter designed to serve as an aide-memoire, military operations are only cited to illustrate the organization, tactics, equipment, and administration. The author seeks to show how, as Lord Wavell put it, Napoleon inspired ďa ragged, mutinous, half-starved army and made it fight as it did." 192 page softcover book with 30 illustrations.
