Who Was Who in the Napoleonic WarsBook - 1998
The French Revolution is one of the most exciting periods in history, but even the most devoted history buff has a hard time keeping up with the personalities who helped create the modern world. Now a comprehensive biographical dictionary profiles more than 500 of the most important figures in the Napoleonic Wars, the War of 1812, and other conflicts of the period. Besides covering hundreds of the most prominent military leaders, entries feature political leaders, scientists, and engineers who developed new weapons and other relevant inventions, and even composers of the most popular marching songs. 320 pages, 250 b/w illus., 7 1/2 x 9 3/4.
