Napoleon's Last Campaign in Germany
Published by Naval & Military Press (2015)
Loraine Petre is widely recognised as the father of Napoleonic Wars history writing. In this volume on the Emperor's last campaign in Germany - the scene of so many of his previous triumphs - Petre pictures Bonaparte at bay, with his Grande Armee decimated by the disastrous retreat from Moscow.
