    The Esposito/Elting Atlas covers all of Napoleon's campaigns and the maps for the campaigns, as well as the battles, are excellent. I have found this volume to be the best operational study, both maps and text, of Napoleon's campaigns.
    But could it be used for maps from War of the Sixth Coalition in general ? I have taken up some books but none of them have maps.
    Most academic works don't seem to have any, and without maps I cannot make sense of anything in 1813 Germany.


    • The book covers the campaigns of 1813 and 1814. It does not cover the Peninsular War. For an Atlas for that I would highly recommend Nick Lipscomb's Peninsular War Atlas
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.


      • I have seen only three works by Donald Horward : Bussaco, the Twin Sieges and Pelet Papers. Are there any others put together books ?
        If not could anybody point me towards the journals where his individual papers could be found ?


        • This may be of interest.

          ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
          All human ills he can subdue,
          Or with a bauble or medal
          Can win mans heart for you;
          And many a blessing know to stew
          To make a megloamaniac bright;
          Give honour to the dainty Corse,
          The Pixie is a little shite.
