About the book:

This is a highly personal account of the authors experiences in the army of Napoleon. The account starts with the author at the age of 19, and without having chosen a career, being inspired to join the cavalry after seeing a regiment of dragoons marching in Paris in 1800. The narrative traces the authors remarkable rise through the ranks and his experiences under the command of Napoleon. The focus of the book is on military encounters, recording de Ségurs involvement in the key battles that were to make France the dominant power of Europe in the early 19th century. Yet it is the personal details, such as Napoleons reaction to the tomb of Frederick the Great, discussions between Napoleon and his officers, and the authors experiences away from the battlefield, which make this work a compelling and unique narrative of such an important period in European history.
