Aleksandr Vasilyevich Suvorov, Count Rimniksky
Return to Book Page. The Art of Victory: Alexander Suvorova Russian military genius who rivalled Napoleon, his contemporary, is today a lost figure in history–except in Russia. Stalin renovated Suvorov’s reputation by borrowing his title, the unprecedented rank “”Generalissimo of the Russian Army,”” and by incorporating Suvorov’s image into propaganda posters depicting himself. Longworth demonstrat Alexander Suvorova Russian military genius who rivalled Napoleon, his contemporary, is today a lost figure in history–except in Russia.
Longworth demonstrates that Suvorov is quite capable of standing magnificently upright in auvorov without Stalin’s aid. Coming from a rather middle-class family at a time vichory wealthy young aristocrats dominated the officer class, Suvorov rose slowly; he did not achieve his greatest eminence until nearly seventy.
Nor did he ever really lose touch with the common footsoldier. As a tactician, he broke every rule and abandoned classical strategy in favor of loose organization on the field that allowed for fluid adaptation to events.
When slow, deliberate plodding of troops was considered absolutely necessary, he instead struck like a mongoose.
scienfe He was the bane of fellow officers, and was indeed a vain, impish eccentric An absorbing portrait of a quixotic pragmatist who never lost a battle.

Jun 16, ‘Aussie Rick’ rated it really liked it Shelves: His reputation was used by Stalin to inspire Soviet troops during WW2 and it would appear that his vicrory is justly deserved although not as well-known in the West for a number of reasons. This book, first published in tries to rectify this anomaly in military history.
Suvorov is known for his military manual The Science of Victory and noted for several of his sayings, including “What is difficult in training will become easy in a battle”, “The bullet is a mad thing; only the bayonet knows what it is about”, and “Perish yourself but rescue your comrade!
He taught his soldiers to attack instantly and decisively: Push hard with the bayonet! He was later transferred to Finland at the end of the Turkish war to help watch the frontier with Sweden and to build defences along that border and was then called in to command the Russian forces against Thaddeusz Kosciuszko’s Polish revolutionaries.
This last victory virtually expelled French forces from Italy.

Suvorov was then ordered to unite in Switzerland with the Army of Rimskiy-Korsakov and, reinforced by the Austrian armies, to face Massena who was then threatening Switzerland. There are a few basic maps but enough to give you a general thw of movements and battles. This is not an in-depth military history but a good rounded story of a famous commander who should not be lost to history. Suvorov died in St. Petersburg on 18 May He is buried in the chapel at the Aleksandr Nevskiy Cemetery in St.
