Hard to say what particular things I require so far.
In fact, first I wanted to estimate it as a source. I’d be interested to know:
- does it contain exact Auguste's accounts or some re-translation by his son.
- to what degree the book is full of first-hand accounts or documents rather than renditions.
- and how deep and detailed is it's description of the 1807 campaign.
In one word, I'd want to have opportunity to analyze value of the book as a source.
