This is the first of five volumes published in 1800 written by British Lieutenant General Graham, victor of Barossa in 1811 and the vanquished at Bergen-op-Zoom in 1814. This work is a general discussion of the 1796 campaign, with all the battles and engagements being discussed. Though General Graham is English and this and later volumes clearly indicate his anti-French, anti-Revolutionary, and anti-Bonapartist attitudes, his account of this campaign is surprisingly unbiased. He prepared this work using a wide variety of sources, both Austrian and French. The accuracy of the data and quotations he provides is surprising. His discussions and facts have been verified in the manuscript using both modern and other period sources.
