"In this essential addition to French military history, Owen Connelly examines both the wars of the French Revolution between 1792 and 1799, and those of Napoleon between 1800 and 1815. Arguing that the importance and drama of the Revolutionary Wars have been neglected, and that the unceasing cut-throat politics that continued into the Napoleonic era has been overlooked, this analysis examines the two eras together to provide a broader context for warfare.
Connelly demonstrates how the wars of the Revolution shaped Napoleon as a military leader and how the practices of warfare developed and deployed during this period were to influence modes of combat throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, establishing trends discernible in the First and Second World Wars."--Jacket.
