The first volume describes the war in Poland and Russia in 1812, the second volume describes the revolt in Germany (The German Campaign) in 1813 and the third volume concentrates on 1814, when the German and Russian troops were in France. Most remarkable for the Dutch history is the fourth volume, which describes the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo and his exile to Elba. With library stamps of the Hogere Krijgsschool Bibliotheek.
