Napoleon: The Last Campaigns, 1813-15 cover
|Author(s)||James Lawford and Peter Young|
No general has seized the Western mind as Napoleon Bonaparte. This book studies the ailing giant in his war of survival after the disastrous Russian campaign of 1812. In military terms there were no more glorious years than those from the spring of 1813 until June 1815, and James Lawford's account is the first single volume, fully illustrated study of that period.
The story is told in three parts:
- 1813 - The struggle for Germany
Superb new maps and diagrams chart the strategic moves of Napoleon and the Allies, and show how they faced one another in a succession of fearsome encounters at Lutzen, Dresden, Leipzig, Brienne, Montmirail, Ligny, Quatre Bras, and finally Waterloo.
