This is Volume One of a five part series that was originally published in 1901 and details the many battles and conflicts witnessed during the 19th Century. The chronology runs from the early years of the Napoleonic Wars right through to the last battles of the century involving many of the great powers. The accounts are detailed and bring to life the contemporary reporting of such momentous events.
Each volume is profusively illustrated with contemporary black and white illustrations, strategic maps and orders of battle. Please note that this is a direct copy of an old book so please allow for the eccentricities of old, uneven and aged paper in the reproduction.
For the student of history it is also a unique insight into the minutiae of many lesser known battles of the century that have been long forgotten in this modern era. In their time the outcomes ultimately had crucial geo-political consequences that we are still living with today.
