Oleg Sokolov - candidate of historical Sciences. The President of the military historical Association of Russia. A specialist in the history of France Napoleon I
The author of the book about ten years he worked in the archive, which contains the largest number of documents on the subject - the historical service of the French army in Vincennes castle. Some of the research conducted in preparing this book, has never been done by French historians. In writing this book has been used by many of the memoirs and specific literature related to the Napoleonic era. All the illustrations were chosen on the principle of absolute conformity to the spirit and truth of time.
For the work the author was awarded by the French government with the Legion of honor.
The book contains information about the full composition of the French army of the First Empire, regiments, military routes, the location of the army depot, the years of formation and abolition of units.
From myself I will add that the work of Sokolova for me personally is one of the reference books on Napoleon and gives answers to many allegedly "vague" aspects of the topic, including the discovery of finds of which "we wasn't supposed to be." As well as a strong basis for further research.
