Campaign in France

Authored by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

Edited by Ricardo Cunha Mattos Portella 
Translated by Robert Farie 

In this book Goethe gives a detailed description of the campaign of allied armies (Prussia, Royalists and Austrians) led by the Duke of Brunswick against the French Revolutionaries in 1792. The campaign culminated in the Battle of Valmy where the Allied army was defeated by the French led by Dumouriez and Kellermann. Also in this book, Goethe describes the Siege of Mainz in 1793. Goethe does not focus in military tactics or strategies, but in day to day life of the campaigns and its effects in towns affected. Goethe exposes several of his studies and thoughts like the color theory, theater, etc. This edition is based in 1849 edition of Chapman and Halls translated from the German by Robert Farie. It is illustrated with pictures of the main characters and antique city maps of the theater of operations.
