Quick Overview

Leonaur 2007 Paperback 216mm x 140mm 196 pages .



Elzéar Blaze recounts his life and experiences in Napoleon's army in a well written articulate and companionable style that draws the reader in as though listening to a master storyteller in the flesh. Whereas most writers of military memoirs deliver linear accounts of their recollections Blaze concentrates on the different aspects of the military experience-the soldiers the food the uniforms the camp the march etc.-and spins fact and anecdote both personal and borrowed into a seamless monologue that evokes the very spirit of the Napoleonic period. Comrades and acquaintances are drawn in convincing detail with all their idiosyncrasies and humour. Blaze is a different kind of French Napoleonic soldier and this is a different kind of military memoir. For those who are fascinated by the subject it is absolutely essential taking the reader into the heart of the times in an intimate portrait of life in the infantry on campaign throughout Europe.
