"A good first-hand account of military life"--The Amourer
incorporating Classic Arms and Militaria (07/01/2017)
"This gem of a book is one of the best accounts of the Spanish war, as well as the desperation and heartbreak that was Russia... This book is a must for every Napoleonic historian, enthusiast, and anyone who likes a good story of high adventure. It is told in a soldierly, straightforward manner, by an officer who did more than his assigned duty for his Emperor and his native land of Poland. It is one of the best memoirs to come out of the period, and ranks with Parquin's as one of the most accurate. Jonathan North's masterful translation has added another gem to the crown of valuable and accurate Napoleonic memoirs available to us."--Kevin Kiley "The Napoleon Series "
