Fighting Techniques of the Napoleonic World explores the tactics and strategy required to win battles with the technology available during the Napoleonic period (1789-1815), and points out how the development of such weapons technology changed the face of the battlefield. Divided into five sections it highlights:
  • Individual components of the armies: the foot soldier, the cavalryman and the artilleryman, the equipment they wore and used, and how they fought together.
  • Technology change, the emergence of military professionalism, and the impact these changes had on the battlefield.
  • How units were used together on the battlefield, and stragetic positioning of battle units.
  • Specialist techniques and equipment developed for artillery.
  • Naval warfare, from the ships in which the men fought to the weapons they carried.
