To achieve this, the essays conform to the common themes of Napoleon's planning, his command and control, his execution of plans, and the response of his adversaries.

Overall, this volume reflects the finest scholarship and cutting-edge research to be found in Napoleonic Military History. Contributors include JonathanAbel, Robert M. Citino, Huw Davies, Mark T.
