Imperial Bayonets examines the maneuvering systems of the French, Prussians, Russians, Austrians and British from 1792 to 1815. It studies infantry maneuvers and firepower, cavalry maneuvers, and artillery. It is THE definitive work on Napoleonic tactics and a must read for anyone wanting to understand the fundamentals of period tactics.  It provides not only a discussion of every major maneuver of the five major powers, i.e. from line to square, or column, but does time and motion studies of how long it would take to execute those maneuvers and compares them to the other nations.  It covers infantry and cavalry maneuvers on this level.  It performs an analysis of both musketry effectiveness and artillery effectiveness, providing curves that demonstrate the effectiveness of both.   It also covers brigade maneuvers and army marches.

 

"There was a time when it seemed that Napoleon was going to become invincible - this fascinating book looks at his mastery of military tactics, paying especial attention to weapons and artillery.” Books Monthly

 

“ … I cannot recommend this book too highly; it should be on every Napoleonic wargamer's bookshelf.” Miniature Wargames
