The book suffers from one flaw, one which he admits indirectly. The Italian and Tyrolian campaigns are only touched on. This is a shame, but Mr.Bowden is not alone in leaving out this area of operations. I sincerely hope one day an author will cover the campaigns of 1805,1809,1813-14 in this area.
Overall a great book. BUY IT
Oh, yes...a word about some of the "hit reviews" previously posted. I, too, have a copy of Sutterheim's 1807 English TRANSLATED piece on Austerlitz, and Scott Bowden is absolutely correct in his citation. Also, I had an opportunity to hear the author when he spoke in Hawai'i in 2002, and one of those talks included, in part, a detailed presentation on Napoleon. In that presentation, I saw a lot of the archival documents used by the author in putting together NAPOLEON AND AUSTERLITZ---documents that others making "hit reviews" say he never possessed. That speaks volumes about the credibility of those who posted those remarks.
