the first volume was pubished years ago to support the Napoleonic society in Georgia, it is a very worthwhile read – I am looking forward for volumes 2 nd 3.

Finished 2nd volume. Couple takeaways,
First, something I know was doctrine but don't do too often is a Russian battery were often, and in this book mostly were used in 1/2 to 1/4 at at time or broken up as tactics were needed. Many times 2 guns are used to support a Jager skirmish line. Second, been looking into the Decembrists revolt and he is amazed how well the German population is usually well off compared to Russian areas, he does compare a few places as same as in Russia but adds often its poor area either from terrain as in lack of growing or no commercial opportunities. I see how this effected some officers to come later in 1825
