NAPOLEON’S SHIELD AND GUARDIAN The Unconquerable General Daumesnil

Spring Sale: £3.19

This is the tale of the Napoleonic wars as told through the story of one soldier-but what a soldier! Pierre Daumesnil rose from a private soldier to being an officer in one of the most famous units of Napoleon’s army, to being a general in France’s army and a Baron of the Empire, receiving twenty wounds during his career. Daumesnil’s career demonstrates the truth of the old adage that in the French army every soldier carried a Marshal’s baton in his knapsack.
