    Looking for a good book on the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 which also includes good maps and OB info.

      This site is a gold mine: http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C19/1866.htm

      Take a look at the battle scenarios at the top of the page.

        Which one of these would you say is the best at explaining the entire war and which supplies good maps? Lets say that maps are more important than OBs in this case.

          Ahh... Good maps... Probably the most common problem with most military history books.

          Quintin Barry's book is very good and contains a lot of maps. However, those maps simply .

          Wawro's book is good, although a bit controversial. The maps are not that great either.

            Thanks for the info folks. Yes, good maps are hard to come by these days.

            If someone knows of a good ATLAS for the war that would work too.
