Piraud at the end. viii, [9]-216 p. 8vo. Napoleon's Seige Specialist. Francois, Marquis de Chasseloup-Laubat (1754-1833) was a French general who fought in the French Revolution and was chief of engineers in the army of Italy under Napoleon. He led the seiges of Maastricht, Milan and Mantua. He reconstructed the defences of northern Italy during the peace of 1800-1805, during which time he constructed the great fortress of Alessandria on the Tanaro. He then served in the Polish and German campaigns, where he directed the siege of Danzig and reconstructed many fortresses. Napoleon praised Chasseloup as one of his best generals.
The detailed plates at the end of the work give plans for cannon and fortifications, as well as designs for a portable bridge, a well, a sawmill and other instruments of war.
