📒In The Wake Of Napoleon Being The Memoirs 1807 1809 Of Ferdinand Von Funck ✍ Lt.-General Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand von Funck
✏In The Wake Of Napoleon Being The Memoirs 1807 1809 Of Ferdinand Von Funck Book Summary : Ferdinard von Funck (1761-1828) was born into sleepy Saxony, securely moored in a backwater of the eighteenth century, during the long reign of Frederick Augustus, the world forgetting it and only anxious to be by the world forgot. Even the ferment of the French Revolution had hardly ruffled its stagnant calm. Into this idyll of the eighteenth century burst Napoleon in full career with the methods of the nineteenth century in a hurry—as the progress of some high-powered modern tug in midstream leaves the heavy craft, moored against the bank, swaying and creaking waterlogged in its wash. By this time von Funck was a senior general in the newly re-organized Saxon army and Adjutant-general to Frederick Augustus, who had recently been raised to the dignity of a king for throwing his lot in with Napoleon. A very astute and balanced witness, the author has left a snapshot of Napoleon and his empire building at its apogee. As the title of the memoirs suggests, the record that General von Funck has left to posterity is that of the new Kingdom of Saxony, as he and his people struggled to come to terms with the full ramifications of being allied to Napoleon. Filled with anecdotes of the new King, his court, Napoleon and his senior ministers, the pages are a witty and full of interest. The memoirs were considered to be so explosive that they were not even published in Germany until 1928 with an English translation produced soon afterward.

📒Napoleon S Defeat Of The Habsburgs ✍ John H. Gill
✏Napoleon s Defeat of the Habsburgs Book Summary : “A very impressive piece of work, and it is unlikely to be surpassed for many years . . . A very valuable guide to Napoleon’s last great victory” (HistoryOfWar.org). With this third volume, John Gill brings to a close his magisterial study of the war between Napoleonic France and Habsburg Austria. The account begins with both armies recuperating on the banks of the Danube. As they rest, important action was taking place elsewhere: Eugene won a crucial victory over Johann on the anniversary of Marengo, Prince Poniatowski’s Poles outflanked another Austrian archduke along the Vistula, and Marmont drove an Austrian force out of Dalmatia to join Napoleon at Vienna. These campaigns set the stage for the titanic Battle of Wagram. Second only in scale to the slaughter at Leipzig in 1813, Wagram saw more than 320,000 men and 900 guns locked in two days of fury that ended with an Austrian retreat. The defeat, however, was not complete: Napoleon had to force another engagement before Charles would accept a ceasefire. The battle of Znaim, its true importance often not acknowledged, brought an extended armistice that ended with a peace treaty signed in Vienna. Gill uses an impressive array of sources in an engaging narrative covering both the politics of emperors and the privations and hardship common soldiers suffered in battle. Enriched with unique illustrations, forty maps, and extraordinary order-of-battle detail, this work concludes an unrivalled English-language study of Napoleon’s last victory. “Sheds new light on well-known stages in the battle . . . he has covered more than just an epochal battle in a magnificent book that will satisfy the most avid enthusiasts of Napoleonic era military history.” —Foundation Napoleon
📒Napoleon S Chicken Marengo ✍ Andrew Uffindell
✏Napoleon s Chicken Marengo Book Summary : This remarkable work tells the story of Chicken Marengo, and cuts through the tangle of myths that has sprung up around it. Supposedly created on the evening of Napoleons victory at Marengo, the dish rapidly conquered Paris, and became a renowned symbol of French haute cuisine.The author sets the dish in its context explaining the nail-biting drama of Napoleons Marengo campaign and the remarkable frenzy of rejoicing unleashed in Paris by the news of his victory. The author argues that the dish is part of a wider myth that Napoleon spun around the battle itself. Uncomfortably aware of just how close he had come to disaster, he rewrote the official account of Marengo. Determined to exploit the political impact of the victory to the full, he portrayed it as a masterly maneuver, rather than a near-defeat salvaged largely by luck.Napoleons Chicken Marengo demonstrates the persistency of popular myth in shaping perceptions of pivotal events. Uffindel sheds startling light on Napoleons extraordinary and yet elusive character, and reveals just how effectively he spun a myth around the amount of food he ate in order to project a positive image of himself. A whole cast of other, unforgettable characters enlivens the story of Chicken Marengo, from Napoleons bickering generals, to celebrity chefs, colorful adventurers, acclaimed artists, fabulously wealthy eccentrics, and famous writers such as William Makepeace Thackeray.
📒Napoleon S Invasion Of Russia ✍ George Nafziger
✏Napoleon s Invasion of Russia Book Summary : “An impressive source book on the conflict, high on information and data.”—Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research September 7, 1812, is by itself one of the most cataclysmic days in the history of war: 74,000 casualties at the Battle of Borodino. And this was well before the invention of weaspons of mass destruction like machine guns or breech-loading rifles.

Also featured are complete orders of battle and detailed descriptions of the opposing forces.
