Charles O'Malley, the Irish dragoon by Charles Lever( Book )

1 edition published in 1841 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What happens when you bring a looney Irishmen into the British Army? Even more interesting, what happens when that army turns him loose on the French? Set during the Peninsular War, this is the rollicking story of an Irish dragoon, Charles O'Malley, and his equally uninhibited servant, Mickey Free. It is a mixture of riotous fun, humor, love-making, and military adventure; but it also shows the darker side of a very real, and very deadly, war."--Amazon

History of the expedition to Russia, undertaken by the Emperor Napoleon in the year 1812 by Philippe-Paul Ségur( Book )

1 edition published in 1827 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French general & historian Philippe-Paul, Comte de Ségur served as a member of Napoleon's personal staff during the Russian campaign. He had joined the cavalry in 1800 & had distinguished himself during earlier episodes of the European war; this led to him being chosen for several diplomatic missions. His two-volume account of the invasion of Russia, first published in French in 1824, has been through many editions & has been translated into many languages. It is both a military history & an eyewitness account. This English translation was first published in 1825 & remains immensely valuable to historians' understanding of Napoleon's ultimately disastrous Russian strategy. Volume 2 begins with Napoleon's arrival in Moscow on 14 September 1812

Adventures of a young rifleman in the French and English armies : during the war in Spain and Portugal, from 1806 to 1816 by Johan Christian Mämpel( Book )

1 edition published in 1826 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the Napoleonic Wars, few had such an unenviable job as the "poor bloody infantry"; fodder for cannon, unless tightly packed in ranks prey to cavalry, their only recourse was discipline and a highly inaccurate musket. As tactics evolved, the infantry would look for ways to maximize their effectiveness and minimize their own casualties. Increasingly the swift, the crafty and the most capable soldiers took to becoming skirmishers plying their trade away from the lines of death, fighting a personal war between the lines behind whatever cover they could find. In Wellington's ranks, many of these skirmishers were armed with the highly accurate but relative slow-loading Baker rifle; feared by their French opponents, the riflemen were not all British but also recruited from the ranks of the German principalities that Napoleon had pressed into his armies. One such soldier was Joseph Maempel: forced away from his native Germany to fight for the French, he was captured early in his career and decided to join the allied cause. After many escapes, scrapes, adventures and much hard fighting, the author returned to his native lands to write his book. The world famous German author and poet Go?the volunteered to edit these memoirs, which contain an excellent account of the service of the young Rifleman across the battle-fields of Europe
