Fransk militærhistorie, krigshistorie, Frankrigs historie, Napoleonskrigene, Napoleonstiden, - fransk beskrivelse af slaget ved Austerlitz, 2. december 1805, udkom i 1960. Militærhistorisk er beskrivelsen korrekt, men forfatteren tager lovligt mange digteriske friheder med at lægge hovedpersonerne ord i munden, så bogen fremtræder nærmest i romanform. Slaget ved Austerlitz betragtes som et af de afgørende højdepunkter i Napoleon's brilliante militære karriere, hvor han vandt en afgørende sejr over den allierede russisk-østrigske hær, under Kutosov, Alexander I og Frants II. Den preussiske hær var også med i alliancen, men nåede ikke frem. Af Napoleon's generaler og marskaller udmærkede især Soult, Murat, Lannes, Bernadotte og Davout, sig i slaget, men først og fremmest skyldes den overvældende sejr Napoleon's militære geni
