Another treasure trove of info. Thanks!

laretenue11 Jul 2024 10:08 a.m. PST

Thank you, once again.

This time you are squarely in my territory, but this is no less appreciated for that.

To my mind, the 1814 campaign in E. France is the perfect wargame setting, for several reasons. Apart from La Rothiere and Laon, most of the engagements are on the small side (up to 30,00 per army). You have Napoleon on top form, actually committing the Guard time and again. The results on the battlefield instantly affect the strategic and diplomatic context. Plus, I've explored the ground, which is within easy ranging distance of Paris. And you can fight over much of it again in 1914 and 1917 should you so wish.

The Montmirail-Vauchamps sub-campaign is satisfyingly self-contained (a bit like Ligny – Q. Bras – Waterloo – Wavre) and is feted by Colin as the campaign's most glorious moment. Honestly, anyone who wants to make sense of it should start with Colin's paper. After that I recommend Mme Mathieu's Dernieres Victoires. They clear up much of the hopeless confusion concerning locations, orbats etc., much of which has persisted into works published in recent years through people still relying on Koch, Vaudoncourt and other sorces which the charm of contemporary material but whose details are all over the place . Among recent publications, Uffindell's 1814 is also very good.

Prince of Essling11 Jul 2024 4:03 p.m. PST

@ laretenue,

Many thanks for your comments & observations which are much appreciated.

Certainly agree Uffindell's 1814 is good and quite an easy read; Nafziger's "The End of Empire" is also good but unfortunately it is not an easy read due to his writing style – you have to read it several times to really get into it.

I have noted your recommendation of Robert Mathieu's "Dernieres Victoires"; sounds like a must for the library….

Allan F Mountford12 Jul 2024 1:46 a.m. PST

As before, this is a seriously useful list.

Note that Maurice-Henri Weil's four volume work (second on your list) was translated into English by Greg Gorsuch and placed on the Napoleon Series between 2011 and 2017.

I claim a tiny amount of credit for this, as I pointed Greg at Weil as a project when he was canvassing for translation suggestions. I had downloaded the four volumes from Gallica on pre-broadband dial-up some years earlier. It had taken hours and hours.

Kind regards
Allan

laretenue12 Jul 2024 4:41 a.m. PST

Mon cher prince … Thank you.

I'm afraid that Nafziger's End of Empire repeats Koch's errors – Ricrard's troops deployed as far as Pomesson, Ney's two Divisions present on the field – concerning Montmirail. These significantly distort the real lineup of forces.

The Mathieu who wrote Dernieres Victoires (Picard, Paris, 1964) was the wife of a mayor of Montmirail. I'm not aware of her writing anything else, but while researching the ground of the battle some 20 years ago under local guidance I was urged to get a copy. The advice was good; I sense that Mme Mathieu felt free to challenge some received assumptions. The book is not easy to find, but I know the British Library has a copy, which I photocopied liberally until a copy cama up for sale in France.

Much later I discovered Colin's paper, which powerfully demolishes some misunderstandings and brings order to the confused accounts which had existed hitherto.
