Abstract:

"The glory of the Imperial Guard resounds above all others in the annals of war. Created, built and nurtured as a bodyguard for Napoleon, it grew from a brigade of fewer than two thousand men into a virtual army, and became 'a human fortress which no one but [Napoleon] could dominate and no enemy could penetrate.' And on such battlefields as Austerlitz, Jena, Friedland, Wagram and Waterloo, it won the laurels of undying fame ... With its vivid narrative and lavish illustrations, 'The Anatomy of Glory' can lay justifiable claim to be one of the most magnificent books on military history ever published."
