In 1795--the year Napoleon Bonaparte was appointed Commander-in-Chief in Italy--the seventeen-year-old Jean-Nicolas-Auguste Noel entered the Artillery School at Ch?lons. A year later, with Napoleon proclaiming himself the liberator of Italy, Noel was appointed second lieutenant in the 8th Regiment of Horse Artillery. Written in 1850, With Napoleon's Guns is his remarkable memoir of 20 years in the Emperor's service. Noel charts both his personal career and, at close hand, the trajectory of the First Empire with frankness and percipience. Based on the journal he kept from his cadetship at Ch?lons, With Napoleon's Guns is a dignified and revealing account of an officer at the heart of Napoleon's army.
