Following Elite 115 - which described the composition of Napoleon's military and civil 'households', and Marshal Berthier's army general headquarters - this title offers an intimate glimpse of the Emperor's entourage in the field during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). Centred on the Waterloo campaign in 1815, it draws comparisons with his earlier triumphs. From the testimony of his trusted servants, the text draws a vivid picture of his daily routines on the march. Of particular interest are new details of Napoleon's tented camp HQ from 1812; and a further selection of the striking uniforms worn by his closest attendants.

Integration of military and civil Households within the Great and Small Headquarters . Organisation and functions of the Great Headquarters . Organisation and functions of the Small Headquarters . The Major General (chief of the general staff), Marshal Berthier . Berthier's staff departments . Communications . The evidence of soldiers/painters
