Napoleons Marshals Hardcover – 1966 by R. F. Delderfield Hardcover: Publisher: Chilton Books; First Edition edition (1966) 242 pages.
Napoleon's Marshals led the troops of France in battles across Europe from 1804 to 1815. A mixed group of twenty-six men, some of the Marshals came from aristocratic backgrounds, some had originally pursued tradesmen careers as drapers and bakers, and others rose from total poverty to hold the highest positions in the empire below the emperor himself. Delderfield's exciting chronicle of these men and their battles tells of their origins, their elevation under the rule of Napoleon, the kingships achieved by some and the betrayals of others, and the Marshals' changing relationship with their leader as the fortunes of the empire rose and fell.**************
The Napoleonic Wars 1803-15, Gates, 1997 Paperback
There is a mass of literature on Napoleon and his times, yet there are but a handful of scholarly works that seek to cover the Napoleonic Wars in their entirety, and fewer still that place the conflict in any broader frameworks. This new study redresses the balance. Drawing on recent findings and applying a "total" history approach, it covers the causes and effects of the conflict and its place in the evolution of modern warfare., Until they were surpassed by the war of 1914-1918, the Napoleonic Wars of 1803-1815 were often collectively tagged, The Great War. Progressively engulfing not only the whole of the continent but also the overseas possessions of the leading European states, it was a war of unprecedented scale and intensity. In many ways a product of change, it acted as a catalyst for upheaval and reform across much of Europe.
