    See my review for part one. Massive and extraordinarily thorough, part 2 is a better and easier read than part 1, mostly due to the fact that the tempo of operations picks up in this period so the narrative does as well. Still only for the most serious student of the Napoleonic period.

    Nice readings For me, an amateur historian, this book is extremely well documented and detailled. It provides a nice inside to the extraordinary fighting spirit of the Prussian army
