From the optimism of the early years in Italy, through the privations of the retreat from Moscow and the horrors of the Battle of Leipzig, to the disillusionment of the Emperor's decline, Nokl charts both his personal career and, at close hand, the trajectory of the First Empire with frankness and percipience. Based on the journal he kept from his cadetship at Chblons, With Napoleon's Guns is a dignified and revealing account of an officer at the heart of Napoleon's army.
