Napoleon's Campaign in Poland, 1806-07 by F. Loraine Petre

Book Description

SHORTLY after the tragic death of the duc d'Enghien, on the 21st March, 1804, Napoleon, then first consul for life, took measures to induce the French senate to propose his elevation to the Imperial dignity. A comprehensive study of Napoleon s campaign in Poland Describes such key battles as Eylau, Heilsberg and Friedland A remarkable insight into Napoleon s genius for war After Napoleon s humiliation of Prussia, on the field Jena, the French Emperor turned his attention to subduing his Russian foe and marched into Poland in the winter of 1806. Six months later, the Russians had been beaten and brought to the peace table and Napoleon was at the height of his power. In his detailed study of this remarkable episode of Napoleonic history, F. Loraine Petre follows every move of the campaign. He assesses the defeat of Prussia, analyses the strengths and weaknesses of both Napoleon s army and that of his Russian opponents, details the bloody battle of Eylau where Napoleon s troops were fought to a standstill in the snows of a Polish winter and describes Napoleon s crushing victory over the Russian at Friedland. F. Loraine Petre s campaign studies are renowned for their scope, detail and clarity, and Napoleon s Campaign in Poland is a brilliant overview of Napoleon s vaunted army confronting some of its most worthy opponents. F. Loraine Petre was a distinguished military historian and student of Napoleonic tactics and strategy. He wrote a number of formative campaign studies, including Napoleon s Conquest of Prussia, Napoleon s Last Campaign in Germany and Napoleon at Bay. "
