Two of history's greatest commanders clash with the fate of Empires at stake
In the Ulm campaign of 1805, Napoleon demonstrated his mastery of the command of the Grande Armee-some 210,000 men-in a masterful flanking movement which was designed to defeat the Austrian Army under Mack in the Danube region before the intervention of the Russian Army under Kutuzov could affect the outcome. This, the third-and final-book in F.N Maude's trilogy on the campaigns of Napoleon to be published by Leonaur, recounts an aspect of the 'War of the Third Coalition' which is widely considered to be a strategic masterpiece by the French Emperor. The battle of Austerlitz would finalise victory and ensure the defeat of the Austrians, but it would be Ulm which would confirm France as the leading power in Europe. This history, combined with Maude's Jena and Leipzig campaigns-also published by Leonaur-are essential components of every Napoleonic library.
