Book Description VOL. 4 IN AGE OF NAPOLEON series. 2009, new copy, LIMITED EDITION 1100 numbered copies, 10 1/2 x 14 1/2, red leather binding, 416 pages, maps, diagrams, orders of battle, uniform plates, smyth sewn binding, gilt page edges, full color through out, acid free archival paper, marbled end papers, silk ribbon marker. -------------------------------------------------------------- Tactical studies have always held a special fascination for me. When well done, these works provide so much useful information on combat capabilities, and have such high levels of exacting details, that they can be studied profitably over and over again and continue to yield fresh insights. Truly excellent examples of this genre begin with impeccable research, always utilizing any official after-action reports and other eyewitness sources written during and after the war, from participants on both sides of the engagement. Beyond the research, the author must bring a painstaking eye to choreograph the complicated maneuvers, attacks, and counter-strokes that constitute the "dance of war," and then have the talent to distill it into a cogent narrative. Furthermore, the story of the opposing commanders and the key decisions made is best told in the moment what did the commander know at the time, and what were his realistic options and not with the annoying omniscience of an author who bases his analysis only on outcomes long after the fact. ------------------------------------- Such a study is nothing less than a Herculean undertaking. One hundred years ago, in an effort to reconstitute one of Napoleon's most legendary military achievements, a young French capitaine d'infanterie breveté named Pascal Bressonnet diligently reconstructed the 1806 campaign in Prussia. Through the use of detailed after-action reports from the officers of Napoleon's magnificent Grande Armée, combined with in-depth German studies that recounted the Prussian side of the conflict, Bressonnet was able to author the most remarkably detailed and authoritative tactical study of any of the battles of the Napoleonic era. Bressonnet's Études tactiques sur la Campagne de 1806 (Saalfeld-Jena-Auerstedt), is a landmark book, filled with such precise and detailed tactical descriptions and analysis, along with superb maps, that it could only have been written by someone who had earned a complete mastery of the subject------------------------------------------------------ So, a century after the appearance of the original work, Bressonnet's study now makes its English-language debut to an ever-growing audience interested in learning more about the fascinating details of Napoleonic warfare. To supplement Bressonnet's original as completely as possible, I have the honor to work with the visionary professionals at Military History Press, who agreed to include, among many other things, the French after-action reports from which Bressonnet drew many of his details, plus newly-created maps and exciting tactical diagrams and much more. Hopefully, this lavish volume will be both a worthy salute to the legacy of the brave soldiers who fought this epic campaign, and also to Bressonnet himself, who we have kept in mind each day as we strove to equal his passion and high standards.
