BOUÉ Gilles, The Battle of Leipzig 1813

From the publisher:
"One of the most decisive battles of the Napoleonic wars is described in this gripping narrative.
Around Leipzig between 14-19 October 1813, 500,000 men would battle on what remains the greatest battlefield of the Napoleonic wars. Napoleon would fight to keep his grip on Germany and beyond his empire. The Russians, the crowned winners of the unthinkable victory of their 1812 winter campaign, the Prussians, and their vehemence against France, the Austrians, wanting to erase fifteen years of defeats, all unite against the last Grand Army."
