    1. The denouement to the disastrous Russian campaign and the harbinger of Waterloo. Leipzig was a victory by an Allied army against a rapidly recreated French army. Napoleon has lost a huge percentage of the army that entered Russia--as well as priceless horseflesh. His lack of cavalry at Leipzig was an issue.First, it is almost incomprehensible how Napoleon created a new army so swiftly after the catastrophic invasion of Russia. But he did it. One problem? Not enough horses to maintain the cavalry [...]

    2. This volume is one of the weakest I have read in Osprey Campaign series. With limited space of just below 100 pages, it would be almost impossible to present more than superficial narrative of this battle. It is therefore inexplicable to me why the author also chooses to give a lot of space not only to massive order of battle for all involved participants (a list that takes about 10 percent of the volume), but also decided to provide rather detailed descriptions for all major clashes leading to [...]

    3. Not a hugely detailed book on the Leipzig campaign but I felt, even with it being somewhat lacking in detail, it was worth reading for all but the most knowledgeable of Napoleonic students. Good maps and use information abound, as usual.
