1815 the Waterloo Campaign, by Peter Hofschroer published in 1998

This one will change everything you thought you knew about the 1815 campaign! Draws mainly on German sources AS WELL AS the Wellington papers and others. Excellent!

German History 1770-1866, by James J. Sheehan published in 1989

Covers German history throughout the period. Includes information on culture, society, industry, agriculture, as well as some very light military reading.

History of the German Struggle for Liberty, by Poultney Bigelow published in 1896 in 2 Volumes

Although hard to find, an excellent read! Gives much information on the internal workings of Prussia, the characters involved, and the spirit of nationalism in Germany during the period. Weak on Battlefield data. All drawings made by R. Caton Woodville

Napoleon as a General, by Count Yorck von Wartenburg unsure of date of original edition. Accompanying Atlas published at West Point in 1942.

Very informative but rather dry. Still, a "must-have". Atlas has excellent maps regarding all of Napoleon's campaigns.

Napoleon's Conquest of Prussia, by F. Loraine Petre published in 1907

An excellent study of the of the 1806 Campaign

Napoleon's Last Campaign in Germany, by F. Loraine Petre

An excellent study of the entire 1813 Campaign

Napoleon at Dresden, by George Nafziger published in 1994.

Another "must have"! Informative without being dry, containing many black and white renditions of Knotel works.

Napoleon at Liepzig, by George Nafziger published in 1996.

Another "must have"! Informative without being dry, containing many black and white renditions of Knotel works.

The Cavalry Regiments of Frederick the Great 1756-1763, by Gunter Dorn and Joachim Engelman published in 1989

An excellent source of uniform and flag detail, commanders, and actions concerning each unit. Colour Paintings

The Enlightened Soldier; Scharnhorst and the Militarische Gesellschaft in Berlin, 1801-1805, by Charles Edward White published 1989

Informative reading on the early years of Scharnhorst and his struggle to effect change within the Prussian military hierarchy before Jena-Auerstadt.

The Fall of Napoleon, by David Hamilton-Williams published in 1996

Another excellant read! Not very extensive in military data, but full of political intrigue. You'll see that betrayal from his own government and Marshalls would bring him down as much as military action from the other powers of Europe.

The Greenhill Napoleonic Wars Data Book, by Digby Smith, published in 1998

A great book for raw data or information on actions of which one may never know. No pictures

The Infantry Regiments of Frederick the Great 1756-1763, by Gunter Dorn and Joachim Engelman published in 1989

An excellent source of uniform and flag detail, commanders, and actions concerning each unit. Colour Paintings
