A Soldier for Napoleon - The Campaigns of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann, 7th Bavarian Infantry, ed John H. Gill

A Soldier for Napoleon - The Campaigns of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann, 7th Bavarian Infantry, ed John H. Gill

Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann served as a junior officer in the Bavarian Army during the last decade of the Napoleonic Wars, serving in the Austerlitz campaign, the defeat of Prussia and Russia in 1806-07, the Franco-Austrian campaign of 1809 and the disastrous Russian campaign. During the War of Liberation Bavaria began on the French side, but switched to the Allies during the war. Hausmann was besieged at Thorn during the first stage of the war, then took part in the Allied invasion of France of 1814.

Hausmann’s own writing takes up somewhat less than half of the text. For most of his career the only surviving material is his military diary, which was often simply a list of dates and locations, although there are some larger entries for particularly important days. Early in his career he served alongside his father, and the entries from this period tend to be shorter than when they were serving apart. As an example the diary for March 1809 to June 1810 only takes up seven pages. His regiment fought at the battle of Znaim, but this only gets two lines!

The letters from the Russian campaign take up about 50 pages, making them the most significant of the primary sources presented here. These are much more detailed than his diary, and give us a really useful view of life on the fringes of the greatest disaster in Napoleon’s military career. The Bavarians didn’t accompany the main army to Moscow, but instead protected one of the flanks, so weren’t caught up in the retreat from Moscow. We thus get a slightly different view of the campaign, with only occasion reports of the fate of the Grande Armée. Rather annoyingly Hausmann decided not to describe the worst aspects of the final retreat, explaining to his parents that it would be easier to discuss them face-to-face! Even so, these letters give us an idea of the daily concerns of someone of the fringes of the campaign, while the supporting material gives us a good history of the role of the Bavarian army during the Napoleonic Wars.

A Soldier For Napoleon: The Campaigns Of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann - 7th Bavarian Infantry by Franz Joseph Hausmann / 2017 / English / EPUB


‘Fills a very noticeable gap in the history of the Napoleonic Wars by providing a good description of what it was like to be a member of the Royal Bavarian Army.’ HistoryNet The letters and diaries of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann are here placed in the context of the military events of the period by renowned historian John Gill. They stem from Hausmann’s first campaign in 1805 in the war against Austria, followed by the 1806 and 1807 campaigns in Prussia and Poland. In 1809 he was in action against the Tyrolean insurrection and he also fought at Abensberg and Zniam. He was only twenty-three when he embarked on the ill-fated 1812 invasion of Russia and served as part of the Bavarian corps that was shattered in this cataclysmic campaign. He survived to describe the 1813 campaign and the 1814 campaign in France when the Bavarians switched sides and fought against Napoleon. With additional commentary by John Gill on the Bavarian Army and its campaigns and battles, this book is an important, authoritative addition to the works on the Napoleonic Wars.

Julian Stockwin action-adventure historical fiction

Edited by historian John H. Gill, the text of this book - first published in 1998 and now in 2016 - is formed from the letters and diaries of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann, a junior staff officer from Bavaria. The account begins with his first campaign which was against Austria in 1805 this is followed by the 1806 campaign in Prussia, then that of 1807 in Poland. Next comes the
ill-fated 1812 invasion of Russia. The author was 23 at the time of the campaign, serving within Napoleon’s Grande Armee with the VI Bavarian Corps commanded by Marshal St. Cyr and which suffered heavy casualties. Hausmann survived however and went on to serve in the campaign of 1813 and then in 1814, when the Bavarians changed sides and fought against Napoleon. The writer’s letters describe the hardships and danger of the various campaigns, also shedding light on just what life was like for the ordinary serving soldier. The editor’s comments serve to place this first-hand account within the wider context of the time, making the book a valuable addition to the Napoleonic bookshelf. There are seven appendices, covering such topics as Battles and Engagements, The Bavarian Infantry Regiment and Bavarian Orders of Battle. Also included are 21 monochrome illustrations, seven maps, a bibliography and an index.

Update for July 2018 at HistoryofWar.org: Italian Campaign, Peninsular War, Lockheed Aircraft, USAAF Fighter Groups, Clemson class destroyers, German railway artillery

This month we continue with our series on the Italian campaign, looking at three operations designed to support the fighting at Salerno and five of the many battles to break through German defensive lines that became typical of the campaign. We also return to the Peninsular War, looking at two more combats fought by the Spanish during the Vittoria campaign.

In the air we look at more Lockheed aircraft, this time focusing on fighter aircraft, including the F-80 Shooting Star. We also add another nine USAAF fighter groups.

On land we look at German railway guns of the Second World War, including the family of various 28cm guns that were amongst the most effective, and the massive 80cm guns that were the most pointless.

At sea we move onto the Clemson class destroyers, looking at the class itself and the first four ships.

Operation Giant I (Revised), 13-14 September 1943, was the first of two successful attempts to reinforce the Salerno beachhead from the air.

Operation Giant IV, 14-15 September 1943 was the second of two successful attempts to reinforce the Salerno beachhead from the air.

Operation Giant III, (14-15 September 1943) was an unsuccessful American airborne operation carried out to the north of the Salerno beachhead in an attempt to reduce the flow of German reinforcements from the north.

The battle of the Volturno Line (9-19 October 1943) saw the Germans under Kesselring delay the Allied advance north from Naples for over a week, winning crucial time for the construction of defences further to the north.

The battle of the Biferno (1-7 October 1943) saw the British Eighth Army break through the eastern flank of the first German defensive line in Italy, the Volturno Line.

The battle of the Barbara Line (31 October-4 November 1943) saw the Allies break through the outlining defences of the ‘Winter Line’, a hastily constructed line of outposts between the Volturno and the more strongly defended Bernhardt and Gustav Lines.

The battle of the Trigno (27 October-4 November 1943) saw the Eighth Army overcome the second of a series of German defensive positions on the Adriatic coast of Italy, in the aftermath of the initial landings in the south.

The battle of the Bernhardt Line (5 November-17 December 1943) saw the Allies capture the mountains that guarded the ‘Mignano Gap’, on the approaches to the main Gustav line positions behind the Garigliano and Rapido Rivers after a series of costly infantry assaults.

The combats of Guernica (2 and 5 April 1813) saw a French column force the Spanish guerrillas to abandon their HQ in Biscay, but the majority of the Spanish troops were able to escape, reducing the value of the success.

The combat of Bilbao (10 April 1813) was an unsuccessful Spanish attempt to capture the city while it was weakly defended, but failed after one of the key forces failed to arrive in time to support the initial attack.

The Lockheed XP-49 was a design for a more powerful fighter to be based on the P-38 Lightning, but it never got beyond the prototype stage, and by the time the prototype was ready, it was outclassed by existing P-38s.

The Lockheed XP-58 Chain Lighting was a two-man version of the P-38 that suffered from repeated changes of purpose, and that never entered production.

The Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star was the first jet fighter to enter US service, but despite an impressively quick development didn’t arrive in time for the Second World War. It saw extensive service early in the Korean War, before being replaced by the F-86 Sabre.

The Lockheed XF-90 was a design for a penetration fighter, capable of escorting bombers and carrying out ground attack missions, but never got beyond the prototype stage.

The Lockheed R3O was the designation for two versions of the Model 10 Electra used by the US Navy, one purchased for the Navy and one impressed during the Second World War

The Lockheed R5O was the US Navy’s designation for the Model 18 Lodestar transport, of which nearly 100 were used during the Second World War.

The 84th Fighter Group (USAAF) served as a training unit from 1942-1944.

The 85th Fighter Group was a training group that served with the Second and Third Air Forces in the United States in 1942-44.

The 86th Fighter Group was mainly used as a close support unit, and took part in the invasions of Sicily, mainland Italy and the south of France, before ending the war operating over Germany.

The 87th Fighter Group was a short lived replacement training unit for P-47s.

The 318th Fighter Group spent two and a half years based on Hawaii, before moving to the front in June 1944 to take part in the invasion of the Marianas and the air attack on Japan.

The 324th Fighter Group fought in Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, the south of France and the final advance into Germany, mainly operating as a close support unit.

The 325th Fighter Group fought in Tunisia, Pantelleria, Sicily and mainland Italy, then became a escort unit supporting the Italian based heavy bombers on their raids across Germany and occupied Europe.

The 407th Fighter Group (USAAF) was a home based training unit that also saw limited active service in Alaska.

The 408th Fighter Group (USAAF) was a home based training unit that was active from October 1943 to April 1944.

The 28cm Kanone 5 (Eisenbahn) (schlanke Bertha or slim Bertha), was one of the most effective railway guns ever produced, and was large enough to have a major impact on the fighting, without being so large that it became too cumbersome to be used effectively.

The 28cm kurze Bruno Kanone (Eisenbahn) was the first of four models of railway artillery loosely based on a First World War original, and carried a L/40 gun.

The 28cm lange Bruno Kanone (Eisenbahn) was the second of four models of railway gun loosely based on a First World War original, and carried a L/45 gun.

The 28cm ‘Schwere Bruno’ (Heavy Bruno) was the third of four models of railway gun loosely modelled on the First World War 28cm ‘Bruno’ railway guns.

The 28cm K(E) ‘neue Bruno’ was the last of four models of railway gun produced by mounting old naval guns on railway carriages. It was an attempt to produce a weapon that was more powerful than the ‘short’, ‘long’ and ‘heavy’ Brunos,

The 80cm Kanone (Eisenbahn) was the largest artillery gun ever built, and was a vanity project that consumed far more resources than its limited impact could possibly justify.

Clemson Class Destroyers

The Clemson Class Destroyers were the second class of standardized flushdecker deck destroyers produced for the US Navy during the First World War, but none of them were completed in time to see service. Instead they formed the backbone of the inter-war destroyer force, were used for a large number of specialised modifications, and performed valuable service during the Second World War

USS Clemson (DD-186/ AVP-17/ AVD-4/ APD-31) was the name ship of the Clemson class of destroyers. She entered service too late for the First World War, but had a varied career during the Second World War, serving as aircraft tender, a destroyer with an anti-submarine group and a fast transport.

USS Dalhgren (DD-187) was a Clemson class destroyer that was used on experimental and sonar training duties during the Second World War

USS Goldsborough (DD-188/ AVP-18/ AVD-5/ APD-32) was a Clemson class destroyer that spent much of the Second World War supporting amphibious aircraft, before being converted into a fast transport to take part in the invasions of Saipan, the Philippines, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

USS Semmes (DD-189) was a Clemson class destroyer that served with the US Coast Guard in the interwar period and carried out a mix of experimental, training and escort work during the Second World War.

Bomber Offensive, Sir Arthur Harris.
The autobiography of Bomber Harris, giving his view of the strategic bombing campaign in its immediate aftermath. Invaluable for the insights it provides into Harris’s approach to the war, what he was trying to achieve and the problems he faced. Harris perhaps overstates his case, not entirely surprisingly given how soon after the end of the war this book was written

Bac Si: A Green Beret Medic's War in Vietnam, Jerry Krizan and Robert Dumont.
An unusual perspective on the Vietnam War, written by a Special Forces Medic serving at Loc Ninh, one of the more active Green Beret bases during his year in the country. As well as fighting alongside a Vietnamese Army force, he also had more contact with the locals that you find in many of these accounts. Nicely organised, largely by topics, the result is a valuable memoir looking at a less familiar part of the war

The 1916 Battle of the Somme Reconsidered, Peter Liddle.
A modified version of a 1992 original that attempted to produce a new perspective of the battle of the Somme, seeing it as an essential step towards the eventual Allied victory, both for the damage it did to the German army and the improvements it forced on the British, as well as looking at the contemporary views of the soldiers involved in the fighting, suggesting that the average soldier wasn’t the disillusioned figure painted by the war poets or of the post-war period

The Social History of English Seamen 1650-1815, ed. Cheryl A. Fury.
A selection of articles looking at the live of British sailors during the period that saw the Royal Navy evolve into the foremost naval power in the world, after overcoming the trauma of the Civil Wars. A mix of general and very specific articles, the choice of an earlier than normal start date means that this covers some unfamiliar topics, and unfamiliar twists on familiar topic

I, Horatio, Donald A. Tortorice.
A novelised biography of Nelson, written from his point of view, and largely in the style of the period. Suffers from some historical errors, including minor matters of titles, and one major error about the status of Nelson’s ship at the battle of Cape St. Vincent, but the result is still a readable and fairly convincing life of Nelson, from an unusual point of view

The Paper Caper, Tim Topps.
A fun and generally light hearted spy caper, based in the immediate post-war period, at the start of the Cold War. After arriving at a large military depot in the Midlands, our hero is soon involved in an attempt to track down a Soviet sleeper agent, while at the same time running the base newspaper and getting involved in romances. An entertaining read, presumably rather loosely based on the author’s own experiences to give the convincing feel for the period

A Soldier for Napoleon - The Campaigns of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann, 7th Bavarian Infantry, ed John H. Gill.
A look at the Bavarian Army’s role in the Napoleonic Wars, built around the war diaries and surviving letters of Franz Joseph Hausmann, a junior officer who served on many of Napoleon’s greatest campaigns, then on the opposite side during the invasion of France of 1814. Most valuable for the collection of letters from the Russian campaign of 1812, covering the activities of one of the flank armies that attempted to protect the Grande Armée as it advanced to Moscow and back

Patricians and Emperors - the Last Rulers of the Western Roman Empire, Ian Hughes.
Looks at the final decades of the Western Roman Empire, focusing on the series of short-lived Emperors, some of whom came tantalisingly close to winning significant victories, while others were shadowy non-entities who came and went without having any visible impact. Takes an interesting approach, organising the period by the Emperors and not by the series of military commanders who normally dominate the period, and as a result giving us a rather different view of the final years of the Empire in the west

War Birds - The Diary of a Great War Pilot, Elliot White Springs.
The compelling diaries of an American volunteer serving with the RFC and RAF during the First World War, covering his time in training, which became increasingly light-hearted (and drunken) and his six month long combat career during 1918. Provides a fascinating study of the way in which combat stress could affect someone, as well as the contrast between the fairly safe life on the airfield and the dangers in the air

LEO TOLSTOY'S WAR AND PEACE

The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy translated by Lynn Solotaroff. Introduction by Ronald Blythe. Bantam Classic. New York, New York, 1981, reissued 2004. :

I have a lot of quotes and notes from this introduction.

Tolstoy: A Biography by Henri Troyat. Translated from the French by Nancy Amphoux, Doubleday & Company, Inc. Garden City, New York. 1965, 1967. :

Classic biography on Tolstoy. Troyat also has one of the big biographers of Pushkin.

Russia And the Russians: A History by Geoffrey Hosking The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press Cambridge, Massachusetts, 2001. :

If you want a overview of Russian history, this is very good. If you want specific details about different events that you find relevant, it isn't as helpful. It is a one volume book on the history of a whole nation, so, you get what you pay for.

Great Biographies Reader's Digest, Catherine, Empress of All the Russias by Vincent Cronin, Pleasantville, New York, 1987.:

Simple and positive biography of Catherine the Great.

Into Battle with Napoleon 1812: The Journal of Jakob Walter, Edited and Annotated by Bob Carruthers. Coda Books Ltd, South Yorkshire, 2011.:

First-hand account of the wars of 1812 from the French side (though Walter was Westphalian or "German"). I found his contact with Jews interesting as well of course his account of the suffering of the retreat. There are better printings of this out there than the one I have. Short and easy to read.

Anna Karenina, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Penguin Books, London, England, 2002.:

Good shelf companion with the Pevear and Volokhonsky War and Peace.

Austerlitz 1805: Battle Story, Gregory Fremont-Barnes. The History Press, Gloucestershire, 2013.

Books on Austerlitz, for reasons Davidov in his book below gives, is much harder to find than books on the War of 1812. This is small and almost purely from a military perspective, which is both interesting and less of what I am interested in.

The History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell, Simon & Schuster, New York, New York, 1945, 1972.

Read this while in college, but I revisited this for Schopenhauer and Rousseau. Overall, this book is very good for people interested in, well. "The History of Western Philosophy". Russell is very biased of course, but does some interesting things in his summaries of the philosophers (one that has stood out to me for years is the conversation he has Nietzsche and Buddha have). Of course, a modern day reader will most likely want everything that happened in the history of Western philosophy, or *gasp* Eastern philosophy, since Russell wrote his book. He has very negative, probably too negative views of Tolstoy, Rousseau, and Schopenhauer.

Lectures on Russian Literature by Vladimir Nabokov, Harcourt Brace & Company, Orlando, Florida, 1981.:

Nabakov, in his irascibility and pomposity, is insufferable but at the same time, one of the best thinkers when it comes to Russian (or any kind of) Literature. Unfortunately, his section on Tolstoy focuses on Anna Karenina instead of War and Peace. I disagree with the way he believed literature worked (you don't need to know how the streets of Soho look to understand The Strange Case of Jekyll and Hyde), but he is one that deserves to be heard and read.

The Freemasons: A History of the World's Most Powerful Secret Society by Jasper Ridley. Arcade Publishing, New York, 2001.:

Unsurprisingly, finding books about Freemasonry that aren't full of hysteria is difficult. Considering the centrality of Freemasonry in the Pierre plotline, understanding Freemasonry's influence at the time is important. This book is helpful from the French side (and Bonaparte's relationship with it) but contains very little Russian history.

Peter The Great: His Life and World by Robert K. Massie, Ballantine Books, New York, 1981, 1986.:

A television mini-series was based on this book, which is good to understanding Peter the Great and his role in Russian history, which has a small but not nonexistent role in War and Peace.

Up from Serfdom: My Childhood and Youth in Russia, 1804-1824 by Aleksandr Nikitenko. Translated by Helen Saltz Jacobson. Foreword by Peter Kolchin. Yale University Press, New Haven & London, 2001.:

A first-hand account of an exceptional serf rising out of slavery. While the Napoleonic Wars don't affect him, Nikitenko being from the time Tolstoy is writing about and going up to the time Tolstoy is writing is extremely helpful to understanding the peasant lifestyle and what it might be like to live at that time.

In the Service of the Tsar Against Napoleon: The Memoirs of Denis Davidov, 1806-1814, translated and edited by Gregory Troubetzkoy, Stackpole Books, Pennsylvania, 1999.:

Denisov in War and Peace is partly based on this leader of the Cossacks. A first-account that gives an account of Tilsit, the characters of Suvurov and Bagration, and of course the Napoleonic Wars through the lens of a Russian. Because of this, it is a necessary read.

Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin. Translated by Charles Johnston, Introduction by John Bayley. Penguin Books, 1979.

One of the greatest works of Russian Literature and one of the most controversial in translation (see Nabokov's book). The introduction gives a nice account of Pushkin's life and helps make the connection between Pushkin and Tolstoy, which is important from a literary perspective (like understanding James Joyce is important to understanding English-speaking literature for the rest of the 20th century).

Anna Karenina, translated by Constance Garnett, with an Introduction and Notes by Amy Mandelker, Barnes & Noble Classics, New York, 2003.

Mandelker, another translator of War and Peace, has some great notes throughout, just as the Barnes & Noble Classics' War and Peace does.

Napoleon's Russian Campaign by Count Philippe-Paul de Segur, Translated from the French by J. David Townsend with an introduction by Peter Gay. Time-Life Books Inc., Chicago, 1980.

A clear source text for Tolstoy writing his novel, this is a first-hand account of someone who was with Napoleon during the War of 1812. Not only does it give a great account of Napoleon and the army, but it also gives characterization to characters like Ney, Murat, and others.

The Slavery of Our Times by Leo Tolstoy, Translated by Alymer Maude, The Free Age Press, Maldon, Essex, 1900

An important political treatise by Tolstoy, arguing that emancipations from slavery have only created new slavery, which is caused chiefly by demographic shifts from rural areas to urban areas (caused by different forms of violence). Long review here.

The Kingdom of God is Within You by Leo Tolstoy, Translated by Constance Garnett, Wilder Publications, Radford, VA, 2008

This edition is rather poor and full of typos. A text version of Leo Wiener's translation can be found here. An audio version can be found here. My review of the book is 17 different posts. If interested, I would encourage you to use the search bar.

Sonya: The Life of Countess Tolstoy by Anne Edwards, Simon and Schuster, New York, 1981

Lev Tolstoy by Victor Shklovsky, Translated by Olga Shartse, Progress Publishers, Moscow, USSR, 1978


Tolstoy: A Russian Life by Rosamund Bartlett, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, New York, New York, 2011.

Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy, Translated by Rosemary Edmonds, Penguin Classics, New York, New York, 1985,

The Course of French History by Pierre Goubert, translated by Maarten Ultee, Franklin Watts, New York/Toronto, 1988
As the title suggests, this is an overview of French history, starting in the 900s to the 1980s. With enough detail to allow you to get a picture of each time period (and good chapter divisions to boot), Goubert gives a concise description of each period of French history, not only following political upheavals and personalities, but general economic and societal trends as well. Even if one is only interested in the Revolution or Napoleonic sections, I believe it is a necessary read.

Charles Breunig, The Age of Revolution and Reaction, 1789-1850. Second Edition. W.W. Norton & Company Inc, New York , 1977.

Part of Norton's History of Europe series in the 1970s, this book concentrates on the revolutionary period, particularly in France, but has good information on what happened after the period of revolutions and reforms and when it happened again in 1848. A good read for one wanting an overview of the period.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky Crime and Punishment. Translated by Constance Garnett. Introduction by Ernest J. Simmons. Vintage Books, A Division of Random House, New York, 1950.

I was mainly interested in this edition because of the Simmons introduction.



This work is particularly important for comparison of Tolstoy's views of free will, history, and punishment. This work is also slender and much easier to digest than most of Schopenhauer's philosophy. It is simple enough that even non-philosophically inclined people can read it.

Yanov, Alexander The Origins of Autocracy: Ivan the Terrible in Russian History. Translated by Stephen Dunn. University of California Press Berkeley, Los Angeles, California, 1981.

Rather than a biography of Ivan the Terrible, this is mainly how Ivan the Terrible has been viewed in different periods of Russian history. What Yanov concentrates on the most is Hegelian and Stalinist apologists for Ivan. Yanov sees Russian history rotating through cycles of tyranny, "de-Stalinisation", and political stagnation. How this works most relevant to War and Peace is that the reign of Paul was tyranny, the reign of Alexander until the war of 1812 was the "de-Stalinisation", and what followed in Alexander's conservative turn was political stagnation.

Tolstoy, Leo Hadji Murat Foreward by Colm Toibin Translated by Hugh Aplin. Hesperus Press Limited, London, 2003. Reprinted 2004.

A novelette size story that develops a lot of the themes and characterizations of War and Peace, along with Tolstoy's later environmentalism. It is a strong story and is perhaps most notable for its portrayal of Tsar Nikolai I, which is the main reason it was published posthumously.

Roberts, Andrew. Napoleon: A Life. Penguin Books, New York, 2015

A modern biography of Napoleon in a big volume that is accessible (the writing is mostly very readable other than the occasional strange sentence or vocabulary words). Roberts is a semi-Napoleon defender, and it is very easy to disagree with his conclusions, but overall, he is pretty honest in Napoleon's mistakes. Roberts portrays Napoleon as a micro-managing autocrat that was interested in everything, and, unsurprisingly, wrong about a lot.

A Peace Reader: Essential Readings of War, Justice, Non-Violence and World Order. Revised Edition. Edited by Joseph J. Fahey and Richard Armstrong. Paulist Press. Mahway, New Jersey, 1992.

A collection of essays on the subjects of war and non-violence. Contains Tolstoy's Letter to a Non- Commissioned Officer, which I think is a great, and easy, starting point for anyone interested in Tolstoy's political and religious thought. The book also contains some writings from Gandhi and Martin Luther King, as well as some important writings from the Reagan/Gorbachev era.

Fischer, Louis Gandhi: His Life and Message for the World. Mentor, New York, New York, 1954.

A short and sweet description of Gandhi's personality and thought, including his principles of non-violence and comparisons between Tolstoy, Thoreau, and other thinkers. Gandhi is perhaps the greatest example of what Tolstoy's political thought could look like in action.

Tolstoy, Leo. The Raid and Other Stories. Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude. Introduction by P. N. Furbank. Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, 1982.

This collection contains The Raid (1852), Sevastopol in May 1855 (1855), Two Hussars (1856), Albert (1858), What Men Live By (1881), Master and Man (1895), How Much Land Does a Man Need (1886), The Death of Ivan Ilych (1886), and The Three Hermits (1886).

A Soldier for Napoleon: The Campaigns of Lieutenant Franz Joseph Hausmann, 7th Bavarian Infantry. Translated by Cynthia Joy Hausmann. Edited by John H. Gill. Greenhill Books, London, 1998.

An interesting look at an officer serving in the Napoleonic wars that will give a reader a viewpoint of what it was like to be in the army at this time (like Nikolai Rostov's section of War and Peace there is a lot of focus on Hausmann paying for and acquiring goods he wants or needs). Because of where he was located in the wars, the 1805 section is more helpful to a War and Peace reader than the 1812 section (notably, he refuses to disclose any of the horrors he saw in the French retreat).

Road to Revolution: A Century of Russian Radicalism. Avrahm Yarmolinsky. Princeton University Press. Princeton, New Jersey, 1957.
