We're going to be looking at the Italian army under Napoleon in this episode. The Italian army took part in numerous conflicts, including Napoleon's famous (and failed) invasion of Russia in 1812, and established a strong military tradition were previously there had been none. We'll be talking about how armies of the time fought, the origins and development of the Italian army, its social impact, and the campaigns in which it fought.
