From Library Journal: A brilliant follow-up to the author's The Anatomy of Victory: Battle Tactics 1689-1763, this ambitious volume is a study of the infantry, artillery, and cavalry tactics of the Napoleonic Wars. A detailed study of small-unit tactics of the period 1796 to 1815, it focuses on the evolution of tactics from the linear to the impulse method along with the coincidental evolution of arms and equipment. Nosworthy takes the reader right on to the battlefield through the use of primary sources and his analysis of the physical and psychological experience of being a Napoleonic soldier. His is one of the few texts in English to deal with the period on a tactical level. Recommended for all collections.
