…The Memoirs of Jean-Nicolas Curély

"This is the first English translation of the memoirs of Jean-Nicolas Curély. Born in 1774, son of a laborer, Curély rose through the ranks to become a General in Napoleon's Light Cavalry.

Although Curély did not fight in many of the most famous battles of the First Republic and the Napoleonic Wars, this reflects the role of the light cavalry; scouting ahead of the army, conducting reconnaissance to the flanks and launching raids. He did, however, take part in all Napoleon's great campaigns, including Austerlitz, Heilsberg, Essling, Raab, Wagram, Beresina, Wachau, Leipzig, Craonne and Laon, and served as an aide de camp to many of the French army's most famous light cavalry generals…"

I just finished reading it. It was quite good, but in my opinion, not as good as Parquin or Marbot.

Curely book just arrived, along with John Marsden's Tagus Campaign of 1809. It looks a very interesting read, although, like the Tagus title, only downside, if you can call it a downside, it does not contain any prints, photos or images of action scenes, battlefields or uniforms. But I can't wait to get stuck into these two books. Just that mountain of unread titles in the way. LOL
