Written by Colonel Vachee, one of the most distinguished of French tacticians and strategists, with the distinct object of preparing military students for those battles of the future which are now the wars of the present, it abounds with pages which have a direct application to the mighty struggle which is in progress beneath our eyes.The authors thesis is that by a careful examination of Napoleons methods and those adopted by the German Staff in 1870-71 we can formulate rules of warfare which will be of the greatest utility when face to face with an enemy. He takes his hero the hero - of all who have made a study of war, despite his shortcomings and his errors - at the height of his career, and follows him step by step during the magnificent campaign of 1806.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
