These volumes were written with the strong conviction that neither the lapse of time nor the fortunate result of the war ought to prevent us from getting at the exact truth on any matter connected with its origin or incidents. There is no attempt to minimize the differences of opinion which separated the people of that time into two hostile camps. The best service that the historian can render is to set forth, as nearly as he can, the exact facts, taking account of all matters that justice requires should be weighed, and that a regard for truth demands should be clearly set forth. The ensuing work aims in the first place to state the political positions of the contending parties at the outbreak of the war, and, in the second place, to give a general view of the whole struggle, showing the objects of the different campaigns, and their relations to each other, and describing, as fully as has seemed to the author desirable, the more important movements and battles
The first Napoleon; a sketch, political and military by John Codman Ropes( Book )

44 editions published between 1885 and 2012 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Codman Ropes was not only a lawyer of the first order, but also a military history of great note. Intimately involved in supporting troops from his native Massachusetts in the American Civil War (he could not serve directly himself due to a childhood illness), he later diligently collected information on this conflict to produce the excellent "The Army under Pope" and the unfinished "Story of the Civil War". He was the driving force of the Military Historical Society of Massachusetts, whose members included large numbers of service men, notably General Hancock. From his wealth of expertise and knowledge, he produced two volumes on the Napoleonic period as well, both of which have gone on to become standard works. This volume details the outline of the startling career of Napoleon Bonaparte, from his noble but humble beginnings in Corsica to the heights of his power as Emperor of the French, and to his eventual demise in exile at St. Helena. Free from any of the rancorous or jingoistic undertones found in works emanating from the European belligerent nations such as France or England, the text is clear, lucid and entertaining. Despite being a "Sketch", it covers all the major areas of Napoleon's life, including his military, personal and political achievements that defined the policy in Europe for over a decade. Warmly recommended to a novice of the subject as well as an experienced Napoleonic campaigner

Waterloo Illustration Pack - 14 maps/battle plans, 18 portraits of the personalities engaged, 10 illustrations. John Codman Ropes was not only a lawyer of the first order, but also a military history of great note. Intimately involved in supporting troops from his native Massachusetts in the American Civil War (he could not serve directly himself due to a childhood illness), he later diligently collected information on this conflict to produce the excellent "The Army under Pope" and the unfinished "Story of the Civil War". He was the driving force of the Military Historical Society of Massachusetts, whose members included large numbers of service men, notably General Hancock. From his wealth of expertise and knowledge, he produced two volumes on the Napoleonic period as well, both of which have gone on to become standard works. Ropes' "Campaign of Waterloo" is a classic of its kind, acclaimed as unbiased, brilliant and eminently readable. The format of the book is ideally suited to the accumulated eye-witness testimony that has created difficulty in gaining a clear view of the events that defined an epoch. With each chapter, the Author gives a lucid narrative of the events before weighing the evidence that led him to his conclusions in a notes section at the end, all the while avoiding the tangle often found between the narrative and references. An excellent account of the Waterloo Campaign
