JMH on Clausewitz 1799: "finely translated, annotated, and edited volumes"

Just over a year ago, Professor Nicholas Murray and I published translations of two more volumes of Clausewitz's histories which helped him develop his theories:

"Napoleon Absent, Coalition Ascendant: The 1799 Campaign in Italy and Switzerland, Volume 1"

"The Coalition Crumbles, Napoleon Returns: The 1799 Campaign in Italy and Switzerland, Volume 2"

These have now been very positively reviewed in the Journal of Military History, Vol.86, No.3, July 2022. JMH's reviewer, Professor Frederick C. Schneid, is kind enough to say Nick and I "continue to produce finely translated, annotated and edited volumes of Carl von Clausewitz's military histories" and "For those scholars who study this era, these volumes will be a wonderful addition to their library". He also mentions our previous volume, "Napoleon's 1796 Italian Campaign", describing it as "clear, well-presented, and valuable".

I am very grateful to Professor Schneid for his review.
