…of the 1809 War.

"The little known Battle of Znaim (10th-11th July 1809) was the last battle to be fought on the main front of the Franco-Austrian War. Cut short to make way for an armistice it effectively ended hostilities between France and Austria and is now uniquely considered to be an episode both of conflict and simultaneously of diplomacy.

The battle began as a result of the Austrian decision to stage a rearguard action near Znaim, prompting the Bavarians to unsuccessfully storm a nearby town. Battle ensued with the village changing hands a number of times over the course of the two days…."

Great find cousin!

Gill is a good author and it's going to be worth getting, even if the battle is cover is covered in vol 3 of "Thunder on the Danube."

Not convinced if this is not already covered in his third volume? And if the point is to explore full the battle ok bravo, however, the earlier battles at the beginning of the campaign are far more interesting.

It's on my list. Anything by Jack Gill is worth getting.

Need a book entirely on Wagram more. Same for Aspern-Essling.

The battle is covered in the third volume of Gill's Thunder on the Danube. But it is only covered by one chapter
(Chapter 6) consisting of 27 pages. The forthcoming title will have over 500 pages, so it will be interesting to see what it will actually contain, in terms of battle accounts and politics etc. As yet I've not been able to find the contents info. But, considering it concentrates on a lesser known battle, in comparison to books covering the main actions, it could well be worth having. I'm hoping so, anyway. Just glad it is not available until November. My yet to read pile is just not going down quickly enough.
