Overview

A special edition of Maude's military history essays

The British military historian and soldier F. N. Maude was highly qualified to assess and write about the warfare of the 18th and 19th centuries. Maude's writing reflects his understanding of how the armies of Europe had evolved up to the outbreak of the First World War. There can be little doubt that his three books on the great battles of the Napoleonic era-Jena, Ulm and Leipzig-are extremely useful histories and they remain in print in Leonaur editions. This book contains several linked essays in which Maude considers his subject in terms of tactics, logistics, equipment, training, morale and the performance of troops both on campaign and during battles. As well as the subject defined by the title of this book he gives particular attention to the refinement and performance of Prussian cavalry under von Seydlitz, the tactics of Napoleon's forces and the activities of Wellington's Peninsular Army. This special Leonaur edition enhances Maude's text by including relevant illustrations for the first time; these make this edition unique and explain why the book's original title, 'Cavalry Versus Infantry,' has been slightly modified to differentiate it from editions without illustrations. A useful addition to the libraries of military history students of the period.

Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
