Marengo, 1800 by Dave Hollins

Book Description

Osprey's study of the campaign at Marengo in 1800 during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). Having returned from Egypt and seized power as First Consul, Napoleon led the Army of the Reserve against the Austrian Army besieging Genoa. After a period of skirmishing and manoeuvring, Melas, the Austrian commander, launched a surprise attack on the morning of 14 June. The attack initially drove the French back to Marengo village and, despite committing the Consular Guard, by 3pm the French were retreating. Believing he had won, the wounded Melas left the field to his Chief-of-Staff, Zach. The timely arrival of Desaix's Division led by Kellerman's cavalry and the 9e Legere threw the Austrians into confusion, turned the battle in Napoleon's favour, thus securing his position as First Consul. It could have been very different."

Austrian Commanders of the Napoleonic Wars by Dave Hollins Austrian Commanders of the Napoleonic Wars, Paperback (January 2004)

The Austrian Army fought Napoleon in more major campaigns and battles than any other, either alone or as part of successive Allied coalitions. This book examines the multi-national character of the army - including many French, German, Yugoslavian, Hungarian and even Anglo-Irish exiles.

Hungarian Hussar 1756-1815 by Dave Hollins Hungarian Hussar 1756-1815, Paperback (November 2003)

Hungary was the home of the elite Hussar. This work covers a period during which the Hussars were increasingly regulated within the Hapsburg army, and developments took place in clothing, weaponry and equipment, notably the introduction of short carbines and rifles.

Austrian Napoleonic Artillery 1792-1815 by Dave Hollins Austrian Napoleonic Artillery 1792-1815, Paperback (May 2003)

This title covers the renowned Lichtenstein system, which produced some of the most successful artillery of the Napoleonic Wars. It details the most successful tactics used, tactics previously thought to have been created by Napoleon himself.
