Blundering to glory : Napoleon's military campaigns by Owen Connelly( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 2,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renowned for its accuracy, brevity, and readability, this book has long been the gold standard of concise histories of the Napoleonic Wars. Now in an updated and revised edition, it is unique in its portrayal of one of the world's great generals as a scrambler who never had a plan, strategic or tactical, that did not break down or change of necessity in the field. Distinguished historian Owen Connelly argues that Napoleon was the master of the broken play, so confident of his ability to improvise, cover his own mistakes, and capitalize on those of the enemy that he repeatedly plunged his armies into uncertain, seemingly desperate situations, only to emerge victorious as he "blundered" to glory

The wars of the French Revolution and Napoleon, 1792-1815 by Owen Connelly( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Connelly demonstrates how the wars of the Revolution shaped Napoleon as a military leader and how the practices of warfare developed and deployed during this period were to influence modes of combat throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, establishing trends discernible in the First and Second World Wars."--Jacket
On war and leadership : the words of combat commanders from Frederick the Great to Norman Schwarzkopf by Owen Connelly( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can we learn about leadership and the experience of war from the best combat leaders the world has ever known? This book takes us behind the scenes and to the front lines of the major wars of the past 250 years through the words of twenty combat commanders. What they have to say - which is remarkably similar across generational, national, and ideological divides - is a fascinating take on military history by those who lived it. It is also worthwhile reading for anyone, from any walk of life, who makes executive decisions."--Jacket
