To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a fantastic book that will tell you all you could ever want to know concerning the organization and operation of Napoleon's armies but be ready to drown in a sea of information. Whoa to those who don't already have a basic knowledge of the history of Napoleonic France, the major players in the Grande Armée, and the more important battles it fought - you will be initially lost.
The authors knowledge of the subject is excellent. It is not a story, but a publication of a great amount of information that at times over loads the brain of the average reader. The author (as do many who know their subject in such detail) forgets that many of his readers do not know nor remember French or how it is used in the french military of the day. It would have been more informative for me anyway if the author had continued to add the english meaning behind the french word or phrase. All in all a publication well worth the read for one who is interested in the French Army of the period beyond that France fought a war in Spain, Russia, etc
