Napoleon's Maxims of War with Notes by General Burnod is a fascinating little book, both in itself and because of its place in history. It was published in Paris in 1827 just six years after Napoleon's death and almost immediately translated into German, English, Spanish, and Italian. It was state of the art advice for mid-19th Century military men. Stonewall Jackson carried these maxims in his haversack throughout his campaign.

The content ranges pretty widely encompassing all the topics likely
