Osprey Elite 101 : Austrian Commanders of the Napoleonic Wars 1792-1815

Throughout the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, France's most consistent enemy on land was the Austrian Empire. Austria's huge armies played a central part in the several coalitions against France, from the 1790s, to the Austerlitz campaign of 1805, the closely-balanced battles of 1809, and the final upsurge of 1813-14. Contrary to the myth of rigid aristocratic conformity, the generals who led those armies were as diverse in origin and character as their regiments - some were princes of the blood, and some ex-rankers promoted for talent and courage. This book provides a concise but fact-packed accounts of the careers of more than 30 of these men, illustrated with portraits and colour plates. Text by David Hollins with illustrations by Christopher Rothero.
