About this item

After Napoleon’s humiliation of Prussia, on the battlefield at 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 powers.

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 and describes Napoleon’s crushing victory over the Russians 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 at a time when Napoleon dominated Europe.
