496pp., P.B. 2017 reissue. To gather the material for this book, military historian Bruno Colson spent years researching Napoleon’s correspondence and other writings, including a painstaking examination of perhaps the single most interesting source for his thinking about war: the copy-book of General Bertrand, the Emperor’s most trusted companion on Saint-Helena, in which he unearthed a Napoleonic definition of strategy which is published here for the first time.
