Overview

Antoine-Henri, Baron Jomini (1779-1869), general in the French and afterwards in the Russian service, and one of the most celebrated writers on the Napoleonic art of war, was born at Payerne in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland, where his father was syndic. His youthful preference for a military life was disappointed by the dissolution of the Swiss regiments of France at the start of the Revolution. For some time he was a clerk in a Paris banking-house, until the outbreak of the Swiss Revolution. At the age of nineteen he was appointed to a post on the Swiss headquarters staff, and when scarcely twenty-one to the command of a battalion. At the peace of Lunéville 1801 he returned to business life in Paris, but devoted himself chiefly to preparing the celebrated Traité des grandes operations militaires, which was published in 1804-1805.

This ebook was compiled from scans of the original book. I downloaded it hoping to get a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War (this isn't that book, there doesn't appear to be a free version of that public domain book available for the Nook at this time). I only scanned a few pages (looking for the title page to confirm whether Antoine Jomini was the Author or Translator of this particular book and found that every page was offset. On the iPhone you only see the top left corner of any page, this leaves an unreadable book. I haven't tried this on any other nook devices or software programs, so if you have a larger device you might have better luck, but if you're downloading it to an iPhone, steer clear.
