Overview

A classic account of a momentous battle

Colonel Maude's analysis of Napoleon's campaign of 1813 around Leipzig, is yet another example of this author's careful and thorough examination of the respective armies of the protagonists and the thoughts, motivations and actions of the principal participants. Each decision is deliberated upon and explained, giving valuable insights into the strategies of the French and Coalition generals-as well as those of the Emperor himself-which led to one of the most decisive defeats suffered by an army under Napoleon's command during the Napoleonic Wars. Fought on German soil, with Germans on both sides, Leipzig is considered to be the largest battle ever fought in Europe prior to the First World War, and Maude's classic examination is accepted as a primary document for its study.
