Napoleon - by David Chandler
Załącznik:
Napoleon - David Chandler.jpg

Reprinted due to popular demand, this classic biography traces Napoleon's career from his youthful days of Corsican nationalism; to the introduction to French warfare at Toulon, and his phenomenal rise to power through the military machine, when, at the age of thirty, he became the de facto ruler of France. Dr David Chandler retells in a lively narrative, the soldier-genius's hard-fought battles at Marengo, Austerlitz, Jena-Auerstadt and Friedland, the Spanish encounters, the Russian campaign and Waterloo.

Napoleon Bonaparte would feature on any short list of the greatest military geniuses in history. For twenty years the Corsican was the supreme strategist and tactician and for much of the period he held the fate of Europe in his grasp.
An understanding of his achievements and character is essential. No one is better able to tell the remarkable story of this extraordinary man than Dr. David G. Chandler, the distinguished expert and scholar.
In this book, rightly acclaimed as an authoritative yet highly readable account, we learn of the origins, rise to power, triumphs and ultimate downfall of this mercurial and hugely charismatic figure.
While Napoleon was the cause of incalculable misery and loss of life, there can be no denying his achievements and legacy.
Militarily, he revolutionized warfare and, socially, his promise of honor, glory and riches fired the imagination and expectations of the rank and file and, arguably, ushered in the modern nationalistic age for better or worse.
David G. Chandler's Napoleon is unlikely to be surpassed as an historically accurate and entertaining work on this legendary figure.

The Napoleonic Wars Experience - by Richard Holmes
Załącznik:
Napoleonic Wars Experience - by Richard Holmes.jpg


Napoleon was the colossus of his age. He rose to become one of Revolutionary France's most successful generals, before being crowned emperor in December 1804. Over the next eight years, he fought a series of campaigns, defeating all his continental rivals, though his inability to take command of the sea prevented him from beating Britain. This authoritative book tells the story of the Napoleonic Wars, bringing them to life as never before with 30 items of rare and previously unpublished facsimile memorabilia, which have been specially researched from museum collections around the world.

The Napoleonic Empire in Italy 1796-1814 - by Michael Broers
Załącznik:
napoleonic-empire-in-italy-1796-1814.jpg

Cultural imperialism and acculturation find close counterparts in many of the policies and attitudes of Napoleonic administrators in their Italian provinces, explored here from the rich archival sources of the Parisian and Italian archives, long neglected by scholars. Broers repositions the context in which the Napoleonic empire can be studied, and reconfigures the political and historical geography of Italy, in the century before its Unification in 1859.

Emperor's Last Campaign - by. Emilio Ocampo
Załącznik:
emperors-last-campaign.jpg


Emperor's Last Campaign: A Napoleonic Empire In America
Winner of the 2009 Literary Award, sponsored by the International Napoleonic Society/La Societe Napoleonienne Internationale of Montreal, Quebec's Literary Committee Napoleon's last campaign didn't end at Waterloo. After that fateful day on June 1815, hundreds if not thousands of veterans of Napoleon's army emigrated to America. Many went farther south and joined the rebels fighting for independence in the Spanish colonies, from Mexico to Buenos Aires. The Bonapartists roiled the Western World as they sought fortune, fame, and glory in the expanding United States and in the tumultuous Spanish Americas suffering from repression and civil disorder, and even in the states of Europe. They were joined by adventurers from other nations who shared their admiration for the fallen emperor. This is the first full-length examination of the Bonapartists who emigrated from France after Napoleon's defeat and exile, who formed a loose confederation with adventurers and romantics, and who contemplated a new empire in the Western Hemisphere. The scheme had the support and encouragement of the fallen emperor himself and his brother Joseph, former King of Spain, who lived in exile in the United States. Emilio Ocampo has examined archives on three continents and sources in several languages to ferret out the evidence-a monumental task considering that conspirators tried to leave no evidence of their plans, and that a failed plot, like failure in general, leaves few claimants. Ocampo reinterprets Latin American independence as an international event that drew in all the major powers. By illuminating the complex connections between the shattered France of the Bourbon restoration; an England threatened by radical politician inspired by the French Rev.

Załącznik:
fighting-ships -- David Davies.jpg


Ships of the Line and Napoleonic Sea Battles 1793-1815
This introduction to the Napoleonic wars (1793 to 1815) tells the story of one of the keys to that great conflict, the Ship of the Line - the deadly battleships that played such a vital role in the battles. The author describes the ships' construction and armaments, the daily life of the men who served and the problems faced by commanders of the time in battles that include the Glorious First of June, the Battle of the Nile and Trafalgar.
Illustrated with 8 pages of B&W plates, 4 maps, 9 drawings and 12 battle diagrams

David Davies is a retired Chartered civil engineer who has had a lifetime's interest in ships and the sea. In retirement he developed a great interest in Military and Naval history, especially of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic period. He is a member of the Navy Records Society and Society for Nautical Research.

...this is an excellent book... action packed with many of the great sea battles that form such an important part of the nation's history - especially of course Trafalgar... Above all it is clearly and simply written and most readers, whether technically minded or not should have little difficulty in following the story of the main battles - The Nautical Magazine

Napoleon on St.Helena - by Johannes Willms
Załącznik:
Napoleon on St.Helena.jpg


Isolated in the vastness of the South Atlantic and fortress-like in appearance, the Island of St Helena was important for centuries only as a victualling station for ships of the British East India Company, on their long voyages to and from India via the Cape of Good Hope. It was on one of these journeys that Arthur Wellesley, later the Duke of Wellington, took note of the island's remote impregnability. It was Wellington who suggested St Helena as Napoleon Bonaparte's place of imprisonment and exile after his defeat at Waterloo in 1815. Until his death in 1821, the former Emperor spent his final years under constant British guard. His exile transformed a speck on the maritime map into the most famous island in the world.

French Napoleonic Infantry Tactics 1792-1815 - by Paddy Griffith
Załącznik:
French Napoleonic Infantry Tactics 1792-1815.jpg

For over 20 years France was the dominating, controlling and conquering power of the western world, a result not only of Napoleon's inspired leadership, but of the efforts of almost an entire generation of Frenchmen under arms. The French Revolution heralded both social change and a seismic shift in how armies were organized, trained and deployed. This book provides an analysis of the preparation of French troops from manual regulations to the training ground, studying the changing quality of command and control within the army, which initially ensured that the French infantry were virtually unstoppable. Paddy Griffith not only explores the role of the French infantry at the apex of their powers and their actions in key battles, but also provides a detailed explanation of their eventual decline leading to defeat at Waterloo, providing a critical overview of French Napoleonic infantry tactics

Napoleonic Naval Armaments 1792-1815 - by Chris Henry
Załącznik:
Napoleonic Naval Armaments 1792-1815.jpg

There were many elements to British Napoleonic naval success but one of the key factors was gunnery. Other countries developed different naval weapons to fit their maritime strategies. The French and Spanish systems developed on similar lines, while those of the Baltic navies tended to rely on smaller craft and weapons. Holland, during this period, was part of the French sphere of influence and this had an effect on the development of its naval weapons. This title describes the systems of all these countries as well as the fledgling navy of America, whose gunnery skills embarrassed the Royal Navy at the height of their dominance.

Napoleon's Commanders - by Philip J. Haythornthwaite
Załącznik:
's Commanders.jpg


Soult - Marmont - Grouchy - Gouvion St Cyr - Oudinot - Espagne - Rapp - Gourgaud - Jerome Bonaparte - Murat - Beauharnais - Poniatowski - Chouard - Ney - Larrey - Drouot - Joseph Bonaparte - Jourdan - Suchet - Francois-Etienne Kellermann - Eduard de Colbert - Letort.

Philip Haythomthwaite is an author and historical consultant specialising in the military history, uniforms and equipment of the 18th and 19th centuries. His main area of research covers the Napoleonic Wars. He has written some forty books, including more than 20 Osprey titles, and innumerable articles and papers on military history.

On the Napoleonic battlefield victory or defeat could still depend on the skills, reactions and personalities of individual commanders. Even under a genius such as Napoleon the dispersal of his armies on campaign, and the lack of fast communications, left command and control of the different corps and divisions in the hands of his marshals and generals. This second in a pair of Elite titles describes in concise but colourful detail the careers and personalities of more than two dozen of Napoleon's leading subordinate commanders in the armies of the later Empire, from 1809 to the Hundred Days campaign of 1815. Their individual appearance, and the typical uniforms of a variety of staff officers, are reconstructed in 12 dazzling colour plates.
