With more than a million men under arms Coalition forces poured over the Rhine to invade France between November 1813 and January 1814. Three principal army groups drove forward, smashing the exhausted French forces defending the eastern frontier. In less than a month, French forces ingloriously retreated from the Rhine to the Marne; Allied forces were within one week of reaching Paris. This book provides the first complete English-language study of the invasion of France along a front that extended from Holland to Switzerland.
