Description
 
Using personal documents and primary sources, which are contained in this work, Leonard Chodzko wrote one of the first histories of the Polish Legions in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. This is the seminal work on the subject, from which all other works start. It traces the history of the Legions from the fall of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the rise of its leader - Jan Henryk Dabrowski. Originally published in French, in 1829 as two volumes, we have combined them into one big volume. This is the most recent translation of this work into English in the past fifty years.

About The Author:

Leonard Chodzko (1800 - 1871) was a Polish historian, geographer, cartographer, archivist, editor and activist exile. He was the son of a participant of the Kosciuszko Insurrection and studied law at Vilnius University from 1816 – 1817 where he met Adam Mickiewicz. In 1819 he became the personal secretary to Michal Kleofas Oginski, with whom he left Lithuania in 1822. After a four-year stay in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and England, he settled permanently in Paris in 1826 where he took an active part in Émigré politics before and after the November Uprising of 1830.
