This is an auction for BRITAIN AGAINST NAPOLEON: THE ORGANIZATION OF VICTORY 1793-1815, by Roger Knight. reviews:

"This book presents the extraordinary efforts made by the British to defeat Napoleon in conjunction with its on/off allies. The book's value lies in the description not of campaigns and battles but in the politics,economics and finances needed to support the Navy and the various armies.It clearly indicates the folly of attacking Russia leading to Napoleon's defeat in Europe."

"For anyone impressed with the gigantic American mobilization effort in WW2, as in Maury Klein's "A Call To Arms", the British faced an even bigger existential threat from Napoleon. Where the Americans simply outproduced everyone, the British had to invent from scratch the ways and means to defeat an enemy much more powerful than themselves. The book is a behind the scenes look at how the British managed to accomplish this, and by doing so, create the template for the modern world."
