JOMINI’s LIFE OF NAPOLEON Volume 4
The name of the author, Baron Jomini, is familiar to every military reader. As a writer on strategy and the tactics of battles, or the application of military science to the practical operations of the campaign and battlefield, he had few equals. His works have long been studied and read as textbooks by military students of every country. Prior to the American Civil War, the translated writings of Jomini were the only works on military strategy that were taught at the United States Military Academy at West Point. His ideas permeated the Academy and shaped the basic military thinking of its graduates. The regular army officers who became the general officers for both the Union and the Confederacy in the Civil War began by following Jominian principles. His ‘Life of Napoleon’, though less of a technical character than most of his other works, is regarded as his masterpiece.
