Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

Vincent Cornin, David Chandlers, and Georges Lefebvre should give you a good start.

comment How was Napoleon considered as a ruler?
As for king to emperor. It did not happen like that. It went from an absolute monarchy, to a parliamentarian monarchy, to a parliamentarian dictatorship, to a personal dictatorship, to a mess, then finally, to an Empire. And even that is an over simplification. ^_~

I voted to close because the question is way, way, way too board. I can think of a dozen or so books that have covered the issue.

@Odysseus: Cavalry is used as a "point at target and charge". What makes horses superior to elephants is that they are easier to keep under control -- just like my answers states. Elephants were mostly used as a fear weapon those deployment was closest to cavalry.

Welcome to the site. This is a nice question but is a little over broad. Which time period are you talking about and which theatres of war?

@LennartRegebro: Possibly, however as this images shows, some falconer still use the left hand for the bird and the right hand for the horse.

I am not sure this fits into the history.se but could not think of a better site to ask... Maybe sceptics? Anyhow, please let me know how to improve the question. Thanks.
