Gunther E. This book stands out amongst the multitude of books on warfare in the Napoleonic period as it concentrates on the techniques and conditions of warfare at the fighting level rather than strategic interpretation or analysis of the major commanders. As Napoleon himself once said: & are many good generals but they see too many things at once. Professor Rothenberg's erudite study allows both the historian and the general reader to see the wood for the trees, answering the central question: & was Napoleonic warfare like in practice?'.
Rothenberg also dissects the French Army like few of his contemporaries by starting with the pre-revolutionary make-up through the advances which made Napoleon famous and victorious.
