  • I've heard of it but have never seen it in person. All I know is it's pricey here in the States.

          • The French Revolution Experience

            I just got my order in the mail today:



            http://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Revol.../dp/0233002359

            Not only is it just beautifully ilustrated, it contains 30 facismiles of key documents that highlighted the pivotal moments of the Revolution from a copy of Revolutionary playing cards to the official arrest of Marie-Antoinette

            Now I want "the Napoleonic Wars Experience" book

            This is certainly worth the money !!!!

              Good of you to mention Gill.

              He has just released the final volume in his great 1809 trilogy,it will cover Znaim and Wagram.

                      Did Clausewitz call it by this title and subtitle?

                          No, an honest and straightforward one. Is the gist of the book about Wellington or about 1815 as a whole.

                          I have it ordered and I'm also looking forward to the Bassford and Pedlow translation of the same manuscript that is being talked and written about.

                          Sincerely,

                              James,

                              It was nothing against you personally, and I apologize if you took it that way. I do hope you realize the high esteem in which I hold you and your knowledge and opinions. I was merely asking a question in general and not in particular. In that sense, I guess I was thinking out loud. Again, my apologies.

                              Sincerely,
                              Kevin
