In the first instalment of a new feature on The Napoleonicist, Rachael Stark offers a blisteringly brilliant run down of the life, talents, achievements and controversies of Davout - widely regarded as one of, if not THE finest of Napoleon's marshals, and a man of integrity to boot.

A new podcast, this time about Davout, more or less in my view just a primer which leaves a lot of open questions. In my view Davout stays to be an enigma, he never could show his opertional art of war commanding multi corps units. In the end he stays to be a strange person being involved in endless feuds against his peers.
Unfortunately we have AuerstAdt again and again a complete lack of understanding about the battle and AuerstEdt in general showing the usual entrenched well trodden and in my view wrong perspective of Napoleonic mythology.
