Napoleon's Military Maxims - David G. General introduction. The old saying about every soldier having a marshal’s baton in his knapsack has thus taken on an unexpected modern meaning.
In hardcover, which is the recommended version to get, it is also very, very heavy. Napoleon's Marshals takes an in-depth look at the lives and careers of the 26 army commanders who helped make the French army the almost-unbeatable force it became. Each marshal gets a chapter to himself - written by one of 26 different authors - and that includes a chronology, a portrait, maps and a very detailed look at their careers and lives.
