Includes 26 maps. The story of Napoleon’s brilliant first campaign in Italy is here expertly recounted by Elijah Adlow, former Lieutenant Colonel in the US 26th Infantry Division. “Of the many campaigns in which Napoleon participated, that in which he first exercised independent command is rich in example. In the Italian Campaign of 1796 we discover in amazing sequence those basic combinations upon which rests the structure of the art of war. What is more, the contrasting talents of the opposing commanders enable us to discover the part which spiritual as well as physical factors play in the process of war. Aside from the brilliant successes which gave him fame, Napoleon must always appeal to students of warfare because of the distinct quality of simplicity which marked all his operations. He had the talent for making himself strategically and tactically articulate. To the young soldier who seeks to discover the secret of an art whose mysteries have been revealed to but few, there is some compensation in being able to identify objectively those elements which determine the outcome of military events. If this presentation has aided in the process, its purpose will have been fulfilled.”-Author’s Preface.
