Winter campaigns : the test of generalship by J. Watts De Peyster( Book )

7 editions published between 1862 and 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating historical book is a discussion of the challenges faced in a military campaign conducted during the winter. Prior to the development of modern technology, the logistics and mobility of an army were impacted by weather. The powerful elements of winter have, therefore, proved to be quite influential in military history. A perfect example is Napoleon's failed invasion of Russia in 1812. Napoleon had built an army that seemed unbeatable. At 690,000 men, his Grande Armée was the largest force ever assembled in Europe. After only six months, however, the army had lost 380,000 men. A majority of the men perished from the frigid conditions of the Russian winter. This book was published in 1862 during the American Civil War. John W. De Peyster anticipates winter campaigns in the war and discusses the challenges of such operations. He refers to several examples throughout history. It is a truly interesting study of a particular challenge in military strategy
