About this product
- DescriptionThe origins of Napoleon's world-beating army lay in that of the French Revolution. The re-organization of regiments and tactics to weld together the bones of the old professional Royal army - with the mass of enthusiastc but untrained Revolutionary manpower - produced a military machine which bafled the traditional armies that attempted to strangle the young Republic at birth. This book explains the actual procedures used to produce this result. Events are discussed from the fall of the Bastille, through the great battles on the Rhine and in the Low Countries, the vicious counter-revolutionary war of the Vendee in the west of France, to the failed landings in Wales and Ireland in 1797-98.
- Author BiographyTerry Crowdy was born in London in 1970. Initially a re-enactor, his interest in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars led to writing for specialist magazines. Having assisted with Campaign 70: 'Marengo 1800', his first Osprey title was Warrior 57: 'French Napoleonic Infantryman 1803-1815'. In addition to preparing new projects for Osprey, he is researching espionage during the Marengo campaign, and a history of the 'Incomparable' 9e Legere.
