    Does the focus on the personalities and particulars of the Napoleonic era tend to obscure macro issues of military development over the 18th and 19th centuries? Or do those same details provide a crucial lens for examining those changes?

    Personally, I think some misunderstandings about the relationships between the particulars, personalities and the macro-issues tend to obscure the reasons for the resulting military development.

    Yes.

    They may, but they seem to obscure it at least as much.

    Cheers,
