9781473842564: Napoleon 1814: The Defence of France

In 1814, after two successive years of defeat in Russia and central Europe, Napoleon was faced with the ultimate disaster - an Allied invasion of France itself. The conduct of the intense, fast-moving campaign that followed has been widely hailed as one of his greatest feats as a commander, yet it has rarely been described fully and objectively. Andrew Uffindell, in this gripping and original study, reconstructs the campaign, reassesses Napoleon's military leadership and provides a masterly account of a campaign that helped shape modern Europe.

Using numerous eyewitness accounts, Napoleon 1814 records the swift succession of clashes in graphic detail, leading up to the final battle outside Paris, the biggest and bloodiest of the entire campaign, and then the extraordinary drama of Napoleon’s abdication. It shows for the first time how the course of the campaign was repeatedly determined by the weather and the terrain. The author also covers events off the battlefield, and examines a strangely neglected aspect of the campaign: the devastating impact on the civilian population. He provides a vivid and moving portrayal of a society traumatized by the brutal experience of war, as ordinary people struggled to survive and confront the moral dilemmas posed by enemy occupation.

About the Author :

Andrew Uffindell is a leading British military historian and one of the outstanding modern writers on the Napoleonic wars. His many books include Napoleon's Immortals, a major reassessment of the Imperial Guard using previously unpublished archive material, and The National Army Museum Book of Wellington's Armies, which was part of a series that collectively won the Royal United Services Institute's Duke of Westminster Medal for Military Literature. His other area of expertise is the French army in the First World War, and besides writing The Marne 1914: A Battlefield Guide, he has translated General André Bourachot's acclaimed Marshal Joffre into English.
