About The Book
On April 20, 1792, revolutionary France declared war on Austria and began a struggle that, with only two short breaks, was to last until after Waterloo, more than twenty years later. Except for tiny Montenegro, every country in Europe was involved at one time or another, many countries fighting now on France’s side, then against her. There were naval actions in every ocean of the world, while on land the fighting ranged from Java in the east to Buenos Aires in the west; from Finland in the north to Cape Town in the south.
While Napoleon was the predominant figure, there was also a plethora of distinguished if lesser figures. Among the generals were the Archduke Charles, Kutusov, Massena and Wellington. The admirales included Howe, Villaret-Joyeuse and Nelson — and there was that remarkable trio of statesmen: Castlereagh, Metternich and Talleyrand.
In this book Michael Glover, author of eleven other military historical books, and an authority on the period, weaves together the four strande — military, naval, economic and diplomatic — which went to make p the greatest war that history has known, and which included such classic battles as the Nile, Marengo, Trafalgar, Austerlitz, Jena, Friedland, Wagram, Salamanca, Borodino, Leipzig and Waterloo.
