Hi guys,

For anyone wanting to know the full story of Marshall Ney and more interestingly his downfall and final trial which saw him executed I highly recommend "Marshall Ney, bravest of the brave" by A. H. Atteridge. I found it a superb book that enlightened me deeply with an extraordinarily open and unbiased look at the man, his feats and faults. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to know Ney and what made him tick. The last chapters alone dealing with his trial and subsequent execution are so well written and researched I could not put the book down at times.

Does he express any opinion about whether he was the same man after 1812 or not?
