426 pages with numerous color illustrations and maps.


One hundred years ago, in an effort to reconstitute one of Napoleon's most legendary military achievements, a young French capitaine d'infanterie breveté named Pascal Bressonnet diligently reconstructed the 1806 campaign in Prussia. Through the use of detailed after-action reports from the officers of Napoleon's magnificent Grande Armée, combined with in-depth German studies that recounted the Prussian side of the conflict, Bressonnet was able to author the most remarkably detailed and authoritative tactical study of any of the battles of the Napoleonic era. Bressonnet's Études tactiques sur la Campagne de 1806 (Saalfeld - Iéna - Auerstedt), is a landmark book, filled with such precise and detailed tactical descriptions and analysis, along with superb maps, that it could only have been written by someone who had earned a complete mastery of the subject.


So, a century after the appearance of the original work, Bressonnet's study now makes its English-language debut to an ever-growing audience interested in learning more about the fascinating details of Napoleonic warfare. To supplement Bressonnet's original as completely as possible, I have the honor to work with the visionary professionals at Military History Press, who agreed to include, among many other things, the French after-action reports from which Bressonnet drew many of his details, plus newly-created maps and exciting tactical diagrams and much more. Hopefully, this lavish volume will be both a worthy salute to the legacy of the brave soldiers who fought this epic campaign, and also to Bressonnet

 

There is no doubt that this land-mark translation and the significant augmenting of one of the most famous tactical studies ever sets a superb, new standard in Napoleonic history & publishing.

This title transforms Bressonnet's original book published in 1909 into a modern, 400+ page over-sized giant of lavishly illustrated text, richly supplemented with exciting new tactical diagrams, after-action reports, illustrations and much more. The final result is that "Napoleon's Apogee" is unquestionably the highest quality Napoleonic combat study ever offered. Oh, sure, there have been over-sized Napoleonic art books and similar texts illustrating Napoleon's life. But there has never, ever been a Napoleonic battle study like this that features all the best of a superbly-researched and highly-detailed narrative giving the flow and analysis of combat combined with fantastic art direction.
