work by a folio volume on grand warfare, in which the genius of the master already showed itself. About the same time appeared a small pamphlet on strategy by Major Wagner; then in the service of Austria; this essay, full of wise views, promised that the author would one day give something more complete, which has been realized qs of Gourgaud and of Montholon; the great enterprise of victories and conquests under the direction of General Beauvais; the valuable collection of battles by Colonel Wagner and that of Major Kaussler; the Spanish War by Napier; that of Egypt by Reynier; the campaigns of Suwaroff by Laverne; the partial narratives of Stutterhein aeflections which he has not repeated. Okounieff, Valentini, Ruhle; those of Messrs. de Laborde, Koch, de Chambrai, Napier; finally, the fragments published by Messrs. Wagner and Scheel, in the interesting journals of Berlin and Vienna, have all more or less assisted in the development of the science of war. Perhaps I may be permit

. To give maxims for these kinds of wars would be absurd; there is but one upon which sensible men are agreed, this is to unite the two sects, or the two parties, in order to drive away the foreigner who should wish to meddle in the quarrel, then to explain to each other with moderation, to the end of mingling the rights of the two parties into a pact of reconciliation. In fact, the intervention of a third power in a religious dispute, could never be other than an act of ambition. Colonel Wagner, in translating the first edition of my Compend, has found my assertion too absolute, basing himself upon the support given by Gustavus Adolphus to the Protestants of Germany, and by Elizabeth to those of France; a support dictated according to him by a wise policy. Perhaps he is right, for the pretention of Rome and its church to universal dominion, was flagrant enough to give fear to the Swedes, and even to the English; but this was not the case with Philip II; besides, ambition can w

that tetes-de-ponts will oftener be contiguous enclosed works: but if they are composed of detached works a feeble corps would suffice to secure them from insult. As for the rest those intrenchments enter into the same class as those of camps, and as their attack or defense belongs more particularly to tactics, we shall speak of them in Chapter IV, Article 36; it suffices to have pointed out here their strategical importance. Article XXVIII: diversions and great detachments. Colonel Wagner, in his translation already cited, has been pleased to make upon this article observations, the justness of which I have appreciated, and which have decided me to re-write it entirely. If we still differ in the manner of looking at some points, I am pleased to think that they will be of little importance I have hesitated whether to place this Article in the chapter of strategy or in that of mixed operations (Chap. 8) but it appears to me to belong definitively more particularly to s

unate at Essling, and especially at Wagram, in having adopted this last order, which I proposed in my chapter upon the general principles of war published in 1807; the brave cavalry of Bessieres could do nothing against those little masses. M. de Wagner seems to call in question that I contributed to the adoption of this formation. His Royal Highness, the Arch-Duke himself. assured me of it in the meanwhile, in 1814; for, in the Austrian as well as in the French regulations. it was used on, nor reserves formed in columns; I wished to speak only of cavalry deployed for charging en muraille, and the lines of which uselessly accumulated the one behind the other, would be swept away as soon as the first should chance to retreat. M. Wagner, in order to combat this assertion, cites the battle of Ramilies, where Marlborough conquered by a grand cavalry charge in lines, without intervals, against the French en echiquier. But, if my memory serves me, I think that the allied cavalry w
