A short but very useful account of Napoleon’s most brilliant campaign as Emperor, culminating in smashing the Third Coalition against France. Lt.-Col. Burton dispenses with the extraneous elements and focuses primarily on the actions of Napoleon as he guides his troops from Boulogne, where they have been training for an invasion of Britain, to face his Austrian and Russian foes across the Rhine.
Another excellent volume in the Special Campaigns series produced around the turn of the 20th century by serving or recently retired British and Indian Army officers. Lt.-Col. Burton wrote a number of books on Napoleon’s campaigns for the series and was an acknowledged expert on the era. He applies his expert eye to the lightning moves of the Emperor, contrasted by the lumbering vacillations of his opponents.
