Aspern and Wagram, 1809, Ian Castle

Mighty Clash of Empires (Osprey Military Campaign)

An interesting Osprey campaign book covering some of the largest but often forgotten battles of the Napoleonic wars, including Aspern, Napoleon's first defeat on the battlefield.  It is clearly written and of great use to those interested in the Austrian Army of the period and helps dispel some myths about this much maligned force.  It is of the usual high Osprey standard clearly written and packed with illustrations and colour plates as well as clear maps and 3 D battlefield maps.
