9781107080515: Napoleon and the Struggle for Germany: The Franco-Prussian War of 1813
Revue de presse :

'This is by far the best study in English of the spring campaign of 1813 which played a crucial part in the final defeat of Napoleon. Based on an impressive array of archival and published sources in many languages, Michael Leggiere traces the desperate Prussian struggle against the new French armies raised by Napoleon after the disaster of 1812, and their equally decisive efforts to keep their exhausted Russian allies in the war. It is unlikely that Leggiere's account will ever be surpassed.' Rory Muir, author of Wellington: The Path to Victory, 1769–1814

'The 1813 campaign has been rather neglected in recent decades, above all because it was the traditional stamping-ground of German nationalist historians preaching the virtues and achievements of Prussia and its army. It is high time for a detailed new military history rooted in sources not previously available which seeks to provide a balanced view of the Prussian war effort. Michael Leggiere does this with remarkable skill and the result is a readable and fascinating account of Prussia's remarkable achievement.' Dominic Lieven, author of Russia Against Napoleon: The Battle for Europe, 1807 to 1814

'I wish I had had this book in front of me while writing Citizen Emperor. This is a significant contribution to military history and sets Napoleon's loss of the German campaign in a context that has not been seen before in the English language. Leggiere is the preeminent military historian for the Napoleonic Wars.' Philip Dwyer, author of Citizen Emperor: Napoleon in Power, 1799–1815

'With this first of two volumes on the 1813 Campaign, Michael Leggiere surely secures his position as a preeminent historian of Napoleonic warfare. In Napoleon and the Struggle for Germany, Leggiere uses profound archival research from across Europe to unearth the machinations and thought-processes within the disjointed allied command, and at Napoleon's headquarters. Leggiere reminds us of the complexity of war, and the inherent difficulty of maintaining alliances; and highlights parallels with the better known difficulties in the Anglo-American alliance during the Second World War.' Huw Davies, author of Wellington's Wars: The Making of a Military Genius

'This is military history at its most instructive and fascinating. Leggiere skilfully links the dynamics of operational military history to the opportunities and strains of coalition warfare, showing how the Sixth Coalition faced major difficulties from the outset. This approach offers a valuable perspective in which to consider Napoleonic warfare.' Jeremy Black, author of The War of 1812 in the Age of Napoleon

Dr Leggiere's second book, The Fall of Napoleon: The Allied Invasion of France, 1813–1814 (Cambridge University Press, 2007) won the La Société Napoléonienne Internationale 2008 Literary Award.

Description du livre CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. État : New. 230 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the first comprehensive history of the campaign that determined control of Germany following Napoleon s catastrophic defeat in Russia. Michael V. Leggiere reveals how, in the spring of 1813, Prussia, the weakest of the great powers, led the struggle against Napoleon as a war of national liberation. Using German, French, British, Russian, Austrian and Swedish sources, he provides a panoramic history that covers the full sweep of the battle for Germany from the mobilization of the belligerents, strategy, and operations to coalition warfare, diplomacy, and civil-military relations. He shows how Russian war weariness conflicted with Prussian impetuosity, resulting in the crisis that almost ended the Sixth Coalition in early June. In a single campaign, Napoleon drove the Russo-Prussian army from the banks of the Saale to the banks of the Oder. The Russo-Prussian alliance was perilously close to imploding, only to be saved at the eleventh-hour by an armistice. N° de réf. du libraire AAA9781107080515
