“Napoleon’s Triumph: The Friedland Campaign”
Summer's end, 2011
I'm pleased to report that we met our schedule and Napoleon's Triumph: La Grande armée versus the Tsar's Army, The Friedland Campaign 1807 is at the printer. It has 440 pages with detailed orders of battle, images, and 39 maps. Also, we received so many appeals for a reprint of Crisis in the Snows: Russia Confronts Napoleon, The Eylau Campaign 1806-1807 that we found a way to reprint it at the same time. It has 488 pages with detailed orders of battle, images, and 37 maps. To meet our schedule, everyone here on the farm pulled in harness for an extended time, even the six burros who gave us our farm name, Burro Station.
We don't accept pre-orders because we want to have the finished product in our hands before offering it for sale. Barring natural disasters (I hesitate to name them, having recently endured an earthquake and a hurricane within a seven-day span) and pirates in the South China Sea, we expect to have the books by late November. At that time we will update this site and send out personal e-mails to everyone on our mailing list. If you are uncertain whether you are on our list, go ahead and shoot us an e-mail asking to be notified.
Here is the "bumpf" (a highly technical publishing term loosely translated as sales propaganda) that appears on the flap copy of Napoleon's Triumph. In this case I know it to be accurate and true...because I wrote it myself.
All best and looking forward to receiving your orders in not so very long.
