Compilation of memoirs and military campaigns of the French Republican General Jean Victor Marie Moreau (1763-1813), assembled by the British military writer John Philippart.  Moreau, a General in the Republican Army, also served with Napoleon, until political intrigue and rivalries led to his banishment to the United States in 1804.  He returned to Europe to advise military leaders in their efforts to defeat Napoleon; he was wounded and died in Russia in 1813.
