    Om Napoleon's 1796 Italian Campaign

    Carl von Clausewitz (17801831) is best known for his masterpiece of military theory On War, yet that work formed only the first three of ten volumes of his published writings. The others, historical analyses of the wars that roiled Europe from 1789 through 1815, informed and shaped Clausewitzs military thought, so they offer invaluable insight into his dialectical, often difficult theoretical masterwork.Among these historical works, perhaps the most important is Napoleons 1796 Italian Campaign, which covers a crucial period in the French Revolutionary Wars. During this campaign the young, largely unknown Corsican, in his first command, led the French Army to triumph over the superior forces of the Austrian and Sardinian Armies. Moving from strategy to battle scene to analysis, this first English translation nimbly conveys the character of Clausewitzs writing in all its registers: the brisk, often powerful description of events as they unfolded; the critical reflections on strategic theory and its implications; and, most bracing, the dissection and sharp judgment of the actions of the French and Austrian commanders.From the thrill of the Battle of Montenottethe youthful Bonapartes first offensiveto the remorseless logic of Clausewitzs assessments, Napoleons 1796 Italian Campaign will expand readers experience and understanding of not only this critical moment in European history but also the thought and writings of the modern master of military philosophy.
