Napoleon’s Last Army Multi-Volume Series Cancelled. Two New Books in Production
Lombardy Studios announces that the series of books first mentioned in 2015 under the name Napoleon’s Last Army is officially cancelled. Instead, two exciting new publications centered on Napoleon’s Hundred Days reign are now well underway.
Two New Books on Napoleon’s Armies Scheduled for 2021–2022
The first, an elegant one-volume second edition of the famous Armies at Waterloo first published in 1983 by award-winning historian and author Scott Bowden is scheduled for release in late 2021. The greatly expanded second edition includes additional research developed over the past 37 years, with fresh detailed analysis of the 1815 Waterloo campaign and battle, beautifully illustrated with a number of color images, newly commissioned color maps, and previously unpublished paintings by renowned historical artist Keith Rocco.
The second book is a completely new one-volume work titled, Napoleon’s Last Armies: A Detailed Analysis of the Organization and Composition of the 1815 French Imperial Armies, that will follow in 2022. This original work by Scott Bowden will present and examine the archival records of the last Imperial armies fielded during the Hundred Days, including the complete story of the armies that were des Alpes, du Jura, de la Loire, de la Moselle, du Nord, des Pyrénées, du Rhin and du Var.
Stunning new original maps, full-color images, artwork and more will enhance this Herculean effort.
More details concerning these two landmark projects will be shared on the Lombardy Studios Facebook page and LombardyStudios.com.
