2nd ed., 1998. Xxxiv + 202 pp., 5 fldg., & partly cold., maps + 4 other maps + 2 fldg., charts. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. Napoleon’s total defeat of the Prussian Army at the battle of Jena was one of the most dramatic actions of the Napoleonic Wars. In this balanced and gripping narrative the author gives a key insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the two opposing armies as well as relating and analysing every move of the campaign. With folding diagrams illustrating the combat tactics of the various arms of the opposing forces as well as excellent maps, more than half of which are partly coloured and folding, which allow the twists and turns of a campaign that was fought across the breadth of Germany to be followed with ease, this is a vital history to any Napoleonic collection.
