      If its by Digby Smith I would say it should be a good read. I have "CHARGE" by
      him about the great Napoleonic Cavalry charges.

        Its less a good read and just a reference book . I paid 25 for it. Good buy or rip off?

          It is worth every penny. Digby Smith has written some of the best reference material on the Napoleonic Era. I also recommend that you also get his "Napoleon's Regiments" at the first opportunity.
          If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

                This may be old news, but google online books has a full version of volume VI of Oman's Peninsular War series. it can even be downloaded as a PDF.

                http://books.google.com/books?id=ddR..._brr=1#PPP1,M1

                Also, anything that is old enough to be in the public domain has a good chance of being available as well.

                    I'm reading "1812, Napoleon's fatal March on Moscow" by Adam Zamoyski at the moment. So far a good read. It's the first proper book about Napoleon's Russian campaign I'm reading.

                      I've got that, it's a great reference.

                          Many thanks for the links alas they don't ship outside of America. They are very good prices though, a lot more competitive than the second hand market over here.

                          • I thought it might also be useful to post the below link, it is a miniatures site and therefore is full of people who regularly buy and discuss the latest reference books - very good place to get insight on recent publications. Could be helpful to some (certainly is for me!)

                                D'oh, I should look more closely next time. I think the shipping rates are a little to high for me at the moment but will keep it book marked. Thanks again.
