The Wars of Napoleon

The Wars of Napoleon

by Charles J. Esdaile




There have been exhaustive studies of individual campaigns and theatres of war from military historians, as well as broader accounts that focus on the military operations of Napoleon himself and the other key figures of the time. But these military studies have frequently neglected the political, social and economic aspects of the Napoleonic wars. At the same time, political, social and economic historians of the period have tended to fight shy of the military dimension.
