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

Ralph

Yes, my limited understanding of this subject was that much of Ney's work on manoeuvre, organisation and administration with the VI corps was founded upon the experiences of the VI corps when in the camp.

Atteridge, AH, The Bravest of the Brave, Michel Ney: Marshal of France, Duke of Elchingen, Prince of the Moskowa 1769-1815
Methuen, 1912 (Worley Reprint) chapter viii
Horricks is less interested (I think) in this episode, but there's some passing mentions in Kurtz and Morton (pace Bonnal).
Bulos (1834), particularly vol ii, I am skim reading at the moment, thanks to Google.
But I only have access to vol iii, of Bonnal's fine work and this covers the latter periods of his career.

Griffith et al, French Napoleonic Infantry Tactics 1792-1815, Griffith,P, Dennis,P, Windrow,M - although an Osprey might be useful to start to put together an accessible bibliography.

Best wishes

Anthony
