New book, 288 pages. The largest force continually engaged against Napoleon was not the British army and Wellington, but the Imperial and Royal Austrian Army led by Archduke Charles. Gunter Rothenberg's work remains the definitive volume on the forces that inflicted the first defeat on the French and participated in all the Continental wars of the period. This book provides a thorough survey of the Austrian army from its initial organisation through to its subsequent reforms. As well as detailing all the major battles and campaigns, it explains clearly the political, economic and social climate of Austria in the period in order to place the Austrain Army in its context.
