Some have suggested that while he was great field commander, Napoleon was no great innovator in military affairs, neither tactically, strategically nor technically. Rather, he was the mere beneficiary of the innovations of others.This article will discuss “The Military Revolution” in Western Europe and will analyze how Napoleon became the apotheosis of this “Revolution” by creating, managing and organizing the most devastating and successful army to that point in history. Napoleon and Le Grande Armee became the models for all other generals and armies for the next two hundred years and capped the Military Revolution.
