The Napoleonic Wars gripped Europe, and beyond, for over ten years at the beginning of the Nineteenth century. Hundreds of battles were fought between the armies of France (and its allies) and all those powers that wished to see Napoleon Bonaparte stopped in his tracks and an end to the French Empire. The battles and sieges of the Napoleonic Wars, which cost the lives of between 3 and 6 million men, made unprecedented use of large guns, and every participating army possessed a range of artillery. With the wars covering such a long period of time, and with so many armies involved, the subject of Napoleonic artillery is a complicated one, and no work has attempted to examine all the weapons involved in a single, detailed volume. The product of years of reasearch, this book presents most of what is known about the artillery pieces of the Naopoleonic Wars. Including numerous drawings, contemporary illustrations and modern photographs of surviving guns, it will be an invaluable addition to the library of historians, modellers, wargamers and reenactors. AUTHOR: Paul and Anthony Dawson and Stephen Summerfield have all written extensively on the guns of the Napoleonic Wars. Paul and Anthony live in West Yorkshire and Stephen Summerfield lives in Hull. SELLING POINTS: For the first time all the weapons involved in the Napoleonic artillery has been examined in a single detailed volume. Following years of research, this book presents most of what is known about the artillery pieces of the Napoleonic Wars. An invaluable addition to the library of historians, modellers, wargamers and re-enactors. Superbly illustrated with over 200 drawings, contemporary illustrations and modern b/w photographs. Paul and Anthony Dawson and Stephen Summerfield have spent many years researching this complicated subject of the guns of the Napoleonic Wars. 200 b/w illustrations
