Présentation de l'éditeur :

Müffling's memoirs provide an exceptional first-hand account of the Napoleonic Wars by one of Prussia's finest general staff officers. Müffling is best known in the English-speaking world as General Blücher's liaison officer in Wellington's headquarters during the Waterloo campaign, and as such he was one of the architects of the final victory over Napoleon. However, his military career involved much more than this, proving him a brilliant general staff officer, although not always popular with his contemporaries. He made a major contribution to the development of the Prussian General Staff - the first to exist in the modern sense - and was also fascinated by military topography and cartography. Müffling covers everything from his early posts in 1805 and his account of the battle of Jena in 1806 through to the Waterloo campaign in 1815 and his diplomatic role at the Congress of Aix-la-Chappelle at the end of the wars. His memoirs are a valuable primary source, as they are one of the few accounts written by a senior Prussian officer in the Napoleonic Wars to be translated into English. Peter Hofschröer's introduction to this new edition gives comprehensive biographical details for Müffling and examines the accuracy of certain parts of the memoirs. Müffling has attracted adverse criticism from historians at times; this new edition of his work allows the current generation of readers to make a balanced judgement.
