Michel Ney was born in Saarlouis in 1769 and died in front of a French (royalist) firing squad on 7 December 1815, six months after the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo. He began his army career in 1788 when on 6th December he enlisted in the 5th Hussars and took his first step up the ladder that would lead to Marshal when he was promoted ÒbrigadierÓ or corporal on 1st January 1791. A year later he was a sergeant-of-horse and three months after that, May 1792, a sergeant-major. In that same month war was declared against Austria and so began the long period of the Wars of the Revolution and the Empire which saw the rise of Napoleon. NeyÕs chance, too, had come and he made good use of it. He saw his first pitched battle at Valmy in September 1792, by which time he had become an officer, a sub-lieutenant, promoted during his first campaign. His promotion thereafter was rapid and within two years, at the age of twenty-five, he was a Chef de Brigade, equivalent to a colonel.In May 1801 he met the man who was to have such an influence on his subsequent career, Napoleon, though he showed no disposition to attach himself to that particular rising star. In 1804 Napoleon restored the rank of Marshal of France and among those promoted to that rank was Ney. In 1805, as Commander of the 6th Corps of the Grand Army Ney took part in the campaign of Ulm and Austerlitz. Subsequently, in the war against Prussia his corps fought at Jena and Friedland. During the Peninsular War his corps was with the Army of Portugal under Massena with whom he fell out and was deprived of his command and returned to France. Napoleon reinstated him for his Russian campaign and gave him command of the3rd Corps and it was during this campaign he received the accolade ÒBravest of the BraveÓ. AtteridgeÕs biography covers NeyÕs career in full and notes his showing at Quatre Bras was no longer that of a clear sighted commander while at Waterloo his recklessness was more than evident, a sombre end to a great career. To the royalists he was a traitor having declared for the king when Napoleon was defeated in 1814, and then Ôturned coatÕ when Napoleon returned from exile for the last hundred days that ended at Waterloo.

MARSHAL NEY: The Bravest of the Brave - new book

ISBN: 9781843421955

ID: 978184342195

A. H. Atteridge's biography of Michel Ney. Napoleon's most famous marshal, is a classic work of its kind. He describes Ney's meteoric career in vivid detail, from his enlistment as a hussar in the army of Louis XVI, his rapid promotion through the ranks of the revolutionary armies and his long service under Napoleon. Ney's pugnacious character and his capacity for inspiring leadership come across strongly in innumerable actions across 25 years of almost constant warfare. Particularly striking are the author's accounts of Ney's contribution to Napoleon's most famous campaigns - Ulm and Austerlitz, Jena, Eylau and Friedland and the catastrophic march on Moscow. Ney's last battle. Waterloo, and his subsequent execution by the returning Bourbons form the last chapter of this fascinating story. Atteridge, A.
