A first-hand account by one of the participants in the epoch shaping battle of Austerlitz, in December 1805. Accounted by many to be Napoleon's finest victory, this account is alleged to contain his own commentaries in the text by Major-General von Stutterheim. Von Stutterheim's text is balanced and free from bias despite being written by a serving member of the Austrian military. Added to the text are the notes of a “French officer”, most likely to have been Napoleon himself, who dissects the decisions that he and his opponents took during the battle giving the book an insight into the mind of the world’s greatest general.
