Re: The Camp At Boulogne.
In Response To: The Camp At Boulogne. ()

“70. The camp at Boulogne, was the first school of the tactics in mass, henceforward destined to be successfully practised on the field of battle, and the war of 1805 gave the first opportunity of bringing them into play.”

Perhaps Soady was a little blinded by the brilliance of Napoleonic history...or what are all the camps of instruction and maneuvre held all over Europe in the 18th century and through the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars teaching? Frederick the Great's "Reviews" were not only an exercise in public relations, but were, from all I understand, wrap-ups to substantial mass drill and training.
