Description: This book explores the relationship between the Prince Eugène and Albrecht Adam, official painter to his court, and thanks to over four hundred colour illustrations provides a vivid account. The battle scenes of Leuchtenberg (check this!!!) are the focal point of the book, which details historical and geographical context of the works, as well as information on the battle tactics, the uniforms and the various weapons used in combat.
