"Austerlitz, often described as Napoleon's greatest victory, epitomizes Napoleonic warfare: mobile, offensive and totally ruthless. This highly illustrated book, written by a leading authority, narrates the rise, astonishing success and eventual downfall of Napoleon, whose genius changed the face of warfare forever. Gunther Rothenberg covers the complete history of the Napoleonic Wars, from their origins in the French Revolution and the Italian Campaign through to Napoleon's final defeat in 1815"--Dust jacket.
