Good shout Armand!

At last! A new Napoleonic title that is not about Waterloo! LOL (Before anyone moans, I believe have virtually all Waterloo titles, apart from Andrew Field's latest book about the allies)

This 1805 title is due out on 15th October, if all goes well. However, it only has 140 pages so I'm hoping, considering how much they are asking for it (£30), that it is worth it. And it is now on my list to buy, along with Andrew Field's latest Waterloo book.

for people interested in Russia's past Special Military Operations,
available since last 16th september

Russia's involvement in the campaign of 1805 is remembered mostly for the disaster at Austerlitz. However, Kutusov's campaign on the Danube included a number of successful minor actions and the hard-fought Battle of Dürnstein; Russian troops were also engaged as part of the 3rd Coalition in Germany and around the Mediterranean. Translated by Peter Philips, the Russian staff history of the campaigns details all of these operations, drawing extensively on original correspondence and reports to do so. As such, it is a valuable aid to anyone seeking to understand the performance of the Tsar's armies in the Napoleonic Wars.
A follow-up volume, covering the campaigns of 1806-1807, is planned for release in 2023

Glad the 1806-1807 volume is not due out until next year. I can't keep up – phew! (Will look forward to it though)
