First, the author. J. Colin was an incredibly prolific author. He had unrestricted access to the French archives and in the pre-WWI period wrote numerous works on French military history. He was particularly prolific on Napoleonic subjects, but did work on other areas and this is one of them.
This volume discusses the campaign plans as they were originally developed and the mobilization for the campaign. It contains a great deal of correspondence between the generals and shows how the campaign was envisioned.
