FIGHTING FOR NAPOLEON French Soldier’s Letters 1799-1815


This title offers the English-speaking audience a French view of a conflict which is too often limited to the traditional memoirs of Captain Coignet, Colonel Marbot or Sergeant Bourgogne. This work takes us into the daily life of the Grande Armee, with its suffering and the atrocities committed. Unlike diaries and memoirs written by officers, they captured the real experience of the common soldier. The authors have compiled a very valuable work.
