Aspern and Wagram, 1809 : Mighty Clash of Empires, Hardback Book

Aspern and Wagram, 1809 : Mighty Clash of Empires Hardback

Part of the Osprey Military Campaign S. series


Osprey's study of the Battles of Aspern and Wagram of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815).

The 1809 campaign on the Danube was to break the spell of Napoleon's invincibility.

Indeed Wagram - the largest battle in history at the time - was Napoleon's revenge for his first personal defeat on the battlefield - at Aspern - Essling.

In gaining this revenge the French commander was not wholly successful.

Although the French won the battle as the Austrians eventually quit the field, the victory was an extremely hollow one.

Both these epic battles are expertly described by Ian Castle, chronicling the many changes of fortune as each side captured, lost, then recaptured key positions.
