And concentration of artillery (Chandler, 1966; van Creveld, 1989; Lynn, 1990b; Muir, 1998). The French and other European armies had experimented with the development of non-linear tactical forms such as columns-of-divisions for shock attacks, and skirmishers to absorb the force of advancing enemy lines (Addington, 1994). Officers in the old French royal army had pioneered all these innovations; Napoleon familiarized himself with them during and after his training as an artillery officer. Although these innovations had been tried separately during the Wars of the French Revolution, Napoleon saw the potential of integrating them into a new system of battle, which he employed from his first campaign in Italy in 1796 (Chandler, 1966; McElwee, 1974; Rothenberg, 1978; Addington, 1994).
