At least French historians who take a pro-Bonapartist tack help balance the Anglo-American historians who are traditionally hostile. I'm not sure where the Germans fit in, maybe they're sort of non-partisan.

Looks interesting. Hope there will be an English language version in the not too distant future. I might have managed to reduce my unread mountain of titles by then.

in fifteen years, the Napoleonic Grande Armée, an unrivaled war machine, won more victories than any other army before or after it. Much has been written about Austerlitz, Jena, Moskowa, Leipzig and Waterloo, but these battles are often analyzed from the point of view of strategy and tactics.
However, the Napoleonic Wars were above all a human story. In France alone, nearly 2,300,000 men experienced the anguish of waiting and departure, crossing the continent from one side to the other, the horrors of life in the countryside and the chaos of battle. Enthusiastic or resigned, deserter or hero, everyone reacts according to their personal story. For 15 years, these soldiers were the central but anonymous actors in a great human lottery from which many did not return. They often kept notebooks where they recorded every day the details of the extraordinary adventures they experienced and, the day after the imperial gesture, many of them recounted their military adventures. The sources are therefore abundant, and contrast with the silence of previous periods where the words of soldiers were so rare.
A story at eye level, from recruitment and abandonment of the family to the difficult return to civilian life, through education and training, fraternity and solidarity, the importance of correspondence and maintained bonds, the central role of love, wounds and trauma.
