Monumental cornerstone work on the Revolutionary/Napoleonic Army and its commanders. This is a thoroughly documented work of immense scholarship. It is the treatise of an experienced and seasoned military man, whose criticism of strategy and tactics is always intelligent and to the point. He contributes something new to the campaigns with which he deals, even though his main interest in them is with the careers of the future Marshals. The French Field Armies of the Revolutionary Wars (1793-1800) formed the military education of the future Marshals.
