Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Anonymity, adjective "anonymous", is derived from the... More > Greek word ἀνωνυμία, anonymia, meaning "without a name" or "namelessness". In colloquial use, "anonymous" is used to describe situations where the acting person's name is unknown. Some writers have argued that namelessness, though technically correct, does not capture what is more centrally at stake in contexts of anonymity. The important idea here is that a person be non-identifiable, unreachable, or untrackable. Anonymity is seen as a technique, or a way of realizing, certain other values, such as privacy, or liberty.An important example for anonymity being not only protected, but enforced by law is probably the vote in free elections.

More > Charging at Marengo where they were badly bloodied by the Austrians in their first battle, they again charged decisively at Austerlitz and Eylau, and bore the brunt of the fighting from 1813, when they were expanded to two regiments. Of the regiments of the Guard, the Grenadiers a Pied has been on of the most written about units of the Guard. However, the regiment has not been widely studied or been the subject of indepth research looking in detail at the men and their equipment. The book brings together much of what is known about the Grenadiers from the regiments archive held in France and contemporary iconography to chart in detail the men who made up the regiment. Using primary archival material held in France, this work presents the first indepth study on this well known but little researched regiment.< Less
