Europe against Napoleon: The Leipzig Campaign, 1813 from Eye-Witness Account, by Antony Brett-James, hardcover (good condition)
This book sets out by means of eye-witness accounts -- most of them translated into English for the first time -- to show first hand what the Napoleonic era was really like. There are descriptions of scenes by doctors, painters, bank clerks, students and professors who had enlisted in the Prussian Landwehr, wealthy ladies, young fiancees, an army wife, even Goethe himself, all put into context by the head of the War Studies Department at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.
