On April 20, 1792, revolutionary France declared war on Austria and began a struggle that, with only two short breaks, was to last until after Waterloo, over twenty years later. Except for tiny Montenegro, every country in Europe was involved at one time or another and there were naval actions in every ocean of the world. In this book Michael Glover weaves together the military, naval, economic and diplomatic history which made up the greatest war known to history and included such battles as the Nile, Marengo, Trafalgar, Austerlitz, Jena, Friedland, Wagram, Salamanca Leipzig, and Waterloo. With over 100 illustrations plus 13 coloured plates and 7 maps.
