Napoleon's unrivalled career of victory was due not only to his genius, but also to the efficient system of command by which he controlled his armies. This, the second of two books looking at Napoleon's Imperial Headquarters, focuses on his campaign headquarters, examining the integration of the military and civil households within both the campaign and battlefield headquarters. The headquarters' organisation and lines of communication are discussed in detail as are Marshal Berthier's (chief of general staff) staff departments which included intelligence and the commissariat.
