Marshal Ferdinand Foch, his life and his theory of modern war by A. Hilliard Atteridge( Book )

16 editions published between 1918 and 2013 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A.H. Atteridge penned many books on the subject of warfare, concentrating mainly on the Napoleonic period and the German army in the run up to the First World War. War Correspondent of the Daily Chronicle in the Sudan campaign of 1896, he was also special correspondent at manoeuvres of various foreign armies, and was an officer in the London Irish Rifles from 1893 to 1905. Some of the important military works written by him included Towards Khartoum, Wars of the Nineties, Napoleon's Brothers, Joachim Murat, and Marshal Foch. An acknowledged expert, his writing style is fluid and pacy without losing any of his authoritative knowledge. In this volume, the author focusses on the celebrated Marshal Ferdinand Foch: Atteridge documents Foch's rise from military theorist of high repute before the First World War to the pinnacle of command as the general in chief of the entire war effort. Not a dry analysis of dates and figures, the entire methodology of Foch's theory of warfare is discussed; from the foundations from Foch's time at the Ecole de Guerre to the application of them against the invading forces of Germany. Still an excellent biography of the leader of the Allied Generallisimo

Joachim Murat, marshal of France and king of Naples by A. Hilliard Atteridge( Book )

16 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. A first-rate biography of the famed Marshal Murat, the most famous cavalry leader of the Napoleonic Wars. Joachim Murat was born in Gascony, the department of Lot, and although his father was relatively affluent, no-one realized the spectacular rise that would lead him to a the crown of Naples and an indelible imprint on the history of his native France and all of Europe. Atteridge wrote a number of books on the men who worked as satellites to Napoleon, Emperor of the French, his commanders on the battlefield and the brothers he placed, or tried to place in power as a buffer to a vengeful Europe. Marshal Murat has often been caricatured as a dashing cavalry commander with little more brains than the horse he rode, however the portrait here painted is much more complex than the simplistic view carted out by some other historians. More than a superlative leader of cavalry, in the short campaigns of the emergent French army, he grew distant from Napoleon due to constant goadings and rebukes, he was a varied man, vain and pompous, a dedicated family man, yet possibly also cuckold. He was to find a ignominious grave, for firing squad, at Pizzo having attempted to emulate his former master's march on Paris in his adopted Naples. Highly recommended. Atteridge's book forms a companion to his other single volume biography of Marshal Ney and his work on the varied personalities on Napoleon's Brothers
Marshal Ney : the bravest of the brave by A. Hilliard Atteridge( )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bravest of the brave, Michel Ney, marshal of France, duke of Elchingen, prince of the Moskowa 1769-1815 by A. Hilliard Atteridge( Book )

9 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Few of Napoleon's Marshals have been involved in such controversy as the son of a cooper from Sarrelouis, Michel Ney. His reputation has been argued over fiercely by military historians, Bonapartists, revisionists and romantics for almost two centuries since his untimely demise at the hands of his own countrymen in the gardens of the Luxembourg. This volume paints a sympathetic picture of Marshal Ney, drawing on the memoirs of his subordinates and Gňřal Bonnal's Vie Militaire du Marčhal Ney to combine into the best single volume biography yet published in English. Atteridge writes concisely but vividly, and does not shy away with the controversies that have dogged Ney's reputation, whilst providing a clear framework of the events. The details are accompanied by numerous maps, including excellent details on the often overlooked Battle of Hohenlinden in 1800 which secured the French Republic. From the early days of the French Republic, Ney fought fiercely and with much skill, through to the dark days of the retreat from Russia in 1812 in which he saved the remnants of the vast army Napoleon led to their destruction. His actions in the Hundred Days, for which he lost his life in a trial whose outcome was predetermined, are analyzed clearly and he deserved a better lot than he received for his efforts. Ney was a pivotal figure in an era of giants and Atteridge's book does him the justice his brave and valorous character demands. Highly recommended. Atteridge's book forms a companion to his other single volume biography of Marshal Murat and his work on the varied personalities on Napoleon's Brothers

14 editions published between 1911 and 1919 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous land fights : a popular sketch of the history of land warfare by A. Hilliard Atteridge( Book )

10 editions published between 1914 and 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A. H. Atteridge penned many books on the subject of warfare, concentrating mainly on the Napoleonic period and the German army in the run up to the First World War. An acknowledged expert, his writing style is fluid and pacy without losing any of his authoritative knowledge. The history of warfare has been a subject of continuing fascination throughout the ages. In his own words, the author attempts to provide "a sketch of its progress [the history of warfare], outlined in popular and untechnical language, and illustrated by a series of episodes in that history, intended to show what the fighting on the battlefield was like at various periods." Progressing from the phalanx of the Greeks to the tortoise of the Roman Legions, the evolution of tactics are charted and discussed; the instruments of war are described in great detail, from the pikes of the Swiss to the rifles and cannons of the Boer War. Passing through such great battles as the Issus, Cannae, Zama, Crecy, Rossbach, Austerlitz, Waterloo, Sadowa and Sedan, the author brings his extensive knowledge to bear. However, it is the experiences of the soldier on these many and varied battlefields that the author brings to the fore and provides a constant motif in any of the progressing chapters. A gripping account of the many battles of European history
