My first post at the new forum :) Has anyone seen/can recommend in-depth studies about supply systems of European armies during the Napoleonic Wars? I do not want broad surveys like Creveld's "Supplying War" but "nuts and bolts" approach. Thanks in advance!
Google books has a snippet:
... and "Baumann: Studien über die Verpflegung der Kriegsheere im Felde" (covers the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, pp. 327-854) https://books.google.de/books?id=fE-y2LUuzMIC
There’s this dissertation:
The army of Catalonia: organization, operations, and logistics, 1807-1814
John Leckey Morgan
Ph. D.; Loyola University of Chicago; 1994
2 volumes (xii, 589 leaves) : maps
And an article based on the dissertation:
·War Feeding War?: The Impact of Logistics on the Napoleonic Occupation of Catalonia
The Journal of Military History
Society for Military History
Volume 73, Number 1, January 2009
Wellington's Logistical Arrangements in the Peninsular War. TMO Redgrave. Unfortunately, an unpublished thesis from Kings College London (I have a paper copy). Also
The Army of Catalonia, Organisation, Operations, logistics 1801-14. John Leckley Morgan jnr. PhD Thesis. Loyola Univ of Chicago, 1994. (I have a paper copy)
"L'armée d'Italie" by Gilles Candela ; that's not an extensive study but it gives a good insight on the logistics of the Army of Italy in the mid 1790's.
Lechartier, G. (Capitaine). Les Services de l'arrière à la Grande Armée en 1806-1807, par le capitaine d'artillerie breveté G. Lechartier,.... 1910.
It is on Gallica
Welcome Alex! I know Will Fletcher is working on this during the Peninsular War. Ward did some good work on British army admin. I can't speak for the armies of other nations though...
