So far as discussion of all the military operations is con cerned, it will be found that every aspect of each. Campaign has been passed under ample critical review. Were the merely critical portions of the book to be collected from the narrative, where they are hidden by the details, they would be found to amount to a large volume.

The author would have be'en happy to delay the publica tion of Napoleon until the French Stafi has finished all its labors; but these may last into the next generation; and, while minor facts are sometimes changed by their publica tions, and the colors accentuated, the general matter is not altered, nor the principles of strategy or tactics changed.' And it is these that mainly interest us, and which furnish the basis of this history.

To save space and reader's time, much matter of secondary importance has been printed in small type. In quotations, when an order or a report is of marked importance, it has been put in text type; when not so, but yet illuminating, in small. Much valuable matter has of necessity been crowded out.
