9781848327573: 1809 Thunder on the Danube. Volume 1: Napoleon’s Defeat of the Habsburg

The Franco-Austrian War of 1809 was Napoleon's last victorious war. Napoleon faced the Archduke Charles, the best of the Habsburg commanders, and a reformed Austrian Army that was arguably the best ever fielded by the Danubian Monarchy. The French ultimately triumphed but the margin of superiority was decreasing and all of Napoleon's skill and determination was required to achieve a victorious outcome. Gill tackles the political background to the war, especially the motivations that prompted Austria to launch an offensive against France while Napoleon and many of his veterans were distracted in Spain. Though surprised by the timing of the Austrian attack on April 10th, the French Emperor completely reversed a dire strategic situation with stunning blows that he called his 'most brilliant and most skillful maneuvers'. Following a breathless pursuit down the Danube valley, Napoleon occupied the palaces of the Habsburgs for the second time in four years. The Austrians recovered, however, and Napoleon suffered his first unequivocal repulse at the Battle of Aspern-Essling on the shores of the Danube opposite Vienna. He would win many battles in his future campaigns, but never again would one of Europe's great powers lie broken at his feet. In this respect 1809 represents a high point of the First Empire as well as a watershed, for Napoleon's armies were declining in quality and he was beginning to display the corrosive flaws that contributed to his downfall five years later.

About the Author:

John H. Gill is the author of With Eagles to Glory: Napoleon and His German Allies in the 1809 Campaign (Greenhill). Volume II will take the war to its conclusion, including the Battle of Wagram and the neglected struggle at Znaim that led to armistice.

Review:

“...gives a detailed account of the decisions, movements, maneuvers, and individuals involved... does well on the military aspects of the story...I look forward to seeing the next two volumes.” (Air Power History)

“...moves fluently from the strategic, through the operational and into the tactical modes and back, providing a rich and enthralling narrative and analysis...” (Military Illustrated UK)
