Bibliography

The 1805 campaign was selected for this project because of the ready availability of a wide range of documentary materials. Much of the factual information necessary to plot units on the daily maps was obtained from published primary sources, the most important of which were for French armies the various volumes of P.-C. Alombert and J. Colin, La Campagne de 1805 en Allemagne (Paris: Librairie militaire R. Chapelot, 1902-1908); and for Austrian forces, Alfred Krauss, 1805: Der Feldzug von Ulm (Wien: Seidel, 1912).The literature on Napoleon and the Napoleonic wars is voluminous and I make no claim to having made even a partial survey of it. For this project, I have relied heavily on the excellent study of Frederick W. Kagan, The End of the Old Order, vol. 1, Napoleon and Europe 1801-1805 (Da Capo Press, 2006). In addition to the works listed below, I have especially found useful Charles Esdaile, Napoleon’s Wars: An International History, 1803-1815 (Penguin Books, 2007); Paul Schroeder, The Transformation of European Politics, 1763-1848 (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994); Georges Lefebvre, Napoleon: From 18 Brumaire to Tilsit 1799-1807) (New York: Columbia University Press, 1969); and Rory Muir, Tactics and the Experience of Battle in the Age of Napoleon (Yale University Press, 1998). For reference I have employed David G. Chandler, Dictionary of the Napoleonic Wars (New York: Macmillan, 1979); and David G. Chandler, Napoleon’s Marshals (London: Weidenfield and Nicolson, 1987). Data for battles has been taken from Digby Smith, The Greenhill Napoleonic Wars Data Book (London: Greenhill Books; Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books, 1998).For those looking for a shorter account of the campaign than that found in Kagan, a good place to begin is David Chandler, The Campaigns of Napoleon (New York: Scribner, 1966). For recent introductions to the broader literature, see Alexander Grab, Napoleon and the Transformation of Europe (Palgrave Macmillan, 2003) and Geoffrey Ellis, The Napoleonic Empire (London: Macmillan, 1991). For the older literature, see the bibliography in the work by Georges Lefebvre cited above.Published Primary Materials Consulted
