Encyclopedia of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Produced by ABC-CLIO and edited by Gregory Fremont-Barnes, the four-volume set is the ultimate basic reference for students of this period. I had the honor of writing the major segment on Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as a number of other important topics. I also contributed a number of graphics.

My segments were:

Aboukir, Battle of (1799)
Amiens, Treaty of (1802)
Beyle, Henri (French novelist; psuedonym: Stendhal)
Bonaparte, Napoleon
Brumaire, Coup of (1799)
Byron, George (English poet)
Campo Formio, Treaty of (1797)
Lodi, Battle of (1796)
Lowe, Sir Hudson
Sieyès, Emmanuel Joseph
Malet Conspiracy
Menou, Jacques-François de Boussay, Baron
Montholon, Charles Tristan
Moscow, Occupation of (1812)
Prisoners of War
Smolensk, Battle of (1812)Vitebsk, Battle of (1812)
