The war Drama of the Eagles, Napoleon's Standard-bearers on the Battlefield in Victory and Defeat From Austerlitzto Waterloo, a Record of Hard Fighting, Heroism, and Adventure.
The stories told here exist indeed, even in France, only in more or less fragmentary form, scattered broadcast amongst the memoirs left by the men of the Napoleonic time. They have not before been brought together within the covers of a book. I have utilised, in addition to the personal memoirs of Napoleon's officers, French regimental records, bulletins, and despatches (noted in my List of Authorities), other official military documents, contemporary newspapers, both British and foreign, and information kindly placed at my disposal by the authorities of Chelsea Royal Hospital and the Royal United Service Institution, and by friends abroad.
