9780199685561: Napoleon: On War
Review:

Bruno Colson, one of the leading writers on the history of military thought at work today, has produced a book which operates on two levels: as a history designed to illuminate Napoleon's understanding of war, and as study of the phenomenon of strategy, which - like Clausewitz's - works across time. This is a major achievement, both in conception and in scale. ( Sir Hew Strachan, Chichele Professor of the History of War, University of Oxford)

From the Publisher:

This is the book on war that Napoleon never had the time or the will to complete.

In exile on the island of Saint-Helena, the deposed Emperor of the French mused about a great treatise on the art of war, but in the end changed his mind and ordered the destruction of the materials he had collected for the volume. Thus was lost what would have been one of the most interesting and important books on the art of war ever written, by one of the most famous and successful military leaders of all time.

In the two centuries since, several attempts have been made to gather together some of Napoleon's 'military maxims', with varying degrees of success. But not until now has there been a systematic attempt to put Napoleon's thinking on war and strategy into a single authoritative volume, reflecting both the full spectrum of his thinking on these matters as well as the almost unparalleled range of his military experience, from heavy cavalry charges in the plains of Russia or Saxony to counter-insurgency operations in Egypt or Spain.

To gather the material for this book, military historian Bruno Colson spent years researching Napoleon's correspondence and other writings, including a painstaking examination of perhaps the single most interesting source for his thinking about war: the copy-book of General Bertrand, the Emperor's most trusted companion on Saint-Helena, in which he unearthed a Napoleonic definition of strategy which is published here for the first time.

The huge amount of material brought together for this ground-breaking volume has been carefully organized to follow the framework of Carl von Clausewitz's classic On War, allowing a fascinating comparison between Napoleon's ideas and those of his great Prussian interpreter and adversary, and highlighting the intriguing similarities between these two founders of modern strategic thinking.

Descripción Oxford. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Estado de conservación: New. He was feared and often hated, but no one ever doubted the military genius of Napoleon Buonaparte. During his exile on St. Helena, the deposed Emperor of the French began writing a treatise on the art of war, but later ordered the destruction of the materials he had collected for the volume. After years of research into Napoleon's correspondence and the notebooks of his trusted aide-de-camp Henri Bertrand—and taking Von Clausewitz's treatise On War as a model—Bruno Colson has assembled this remarkably detailed look at the general's views on the objectives of war and the myriad strategies that can be used to obtain them, as well as his assessments of his many enemies. Colson also supplies the historical context for these passages, turning this book into a de facto biography of Napoleon. 484. Nº de ref. de la librería 63893
