768pp., c.90 b/w illus.& maps, P.B. 2019 reissue. A continuation of Nafziger’s definitive military studies of the Napoleonic era beginning with the 1812 campaign and progressing through the 1813 campaign. Cornered and threatened by three armies invading from the north, northeast, and east, every chance to stop the Allies had to be taken and there was desperate battle after desperate battle. Of all his campaigns, Napoleon’s 1814 campaign was one of his most brilliant.
