ARMIES OF THE FIRST FRENCH REPUBLIC AND THE RISE OF THE MARSHALS OF NAPOLEON I Full five volume set
Monumental cornerstone work on the Revolutionary/Napoleonic Army & its commanders. This is a thoroughly documented work of immense scholarship, it is also the treatise of an experienced and seasoned military man, whose criticism of strategy and tactics is always intelligent and to the point, so that he contributes something new to the campaigns with which he deals with even though his main interest in them is with the careers of the future marshals.
The French field armies of the Revolutionary Wars (1793–1800) formed the military education of the future marshals. Phipps called these revolutionary armies the Schools for Marshals.
The end of 1799 may be conveniently taken as the dividing point between the Revolutionary and Napoleonic phases of the conflict, since in that year the consulate of Napoleon Bonaparte was established.
