An Aide De Camp Of Napoleon Memoirs Of General Count De S Gur Of The French Academy 1800 1812

Seeing a regiment of Dragoons process through Paris in 1800, Philippe de Ségur decided to join the French cavalry at the ripe old age of 19, swiftly becoming part of Napoleon’s headquarters staff. From then on, his career was to be unlike many of his contemporaries, for he was the son of a well-connected father and a protégé of Napoleon’s confidante, Grand-Marshal Duroc. He saw service in all of the major Napoleonic campaigns, not just a courtier, distinguished in the crucible of the cavalry charge of Somosierra and also the battlefields of Hanau and Reims. For his service under Napoleon he was forced into retirement from the army and took to writing his memoirs and historical works. His scathing attack on Napoleon’s conduct during the Russian campaign Histoire de Napoléon et de la grande armée pendant l'année 1812 provoked an uproar among Napoleonic loyalists and landed de Ségur in a duel. His further memoirs were published posthumously, a three volume account edited by his grandson, and this edited version was translated into English. Being at the hub of Napoleon’s headquarters gave him the opportunity to see into most of the major events of the era and he recorded these with wit and an impressive eye for detail. These memoirs are a must for any enthusiast of the Napoleonic period. Author — Général Comte Phillipe-Paul de Ségur, 1780-1873 Editor – Comte Louis-Phillipe-Antoine-Charles de Ségur, b. 1838 Translator – Mrs. Harriette Anne Crookesley Patchett-Martin Text taken, whole and complete, from the edition published in New York, D.

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) is best remembered for establishing the First French Empire, declaring himself Emperor of the French in 1804. His military campaigns across Europe sparked the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815) and profoundly shaped European political and economic activities during the early nineteenth century. These volumes, edited by military officer and historian Denis Arthur Bingham and first published in 1884, contain translations of a selection of Bonaparte's letters. Bonaparte was a prolific letter writer, and the translations in these volumes describe a variety of domestic and international situations, including his early military career, his reports on the invasion of Egypt, and his criticism of his relatives who he had installed on the thrones of various conquered countries. Arranged by year with concise explanatory notes, these volumes provide a valuable and fascinating resource for the study of Bonaparte's career and character. Volume 3 covers the years 1811-1815.
