I would say that this has to be my favourite book of military maps. A Military History and Atlas of the Napoleonic Wars by Vincent J Esposito and Colonel John R Elting, edited by John R Elting, is one of the finest works I’ve encountered on all the European battles in which Napoleon fought, between 1796 and 1815. The large maps are beautifully clear and illustrate the battles superbly, enabling anybody with an understanding of maps to appreciate the terrain that those battles were fought over....more

Obviously not the kind of book to read from A to Z, but even when only browsing and picking out some campaign or battle, it's hard to put down for anyone even vaguely interested in Napoleonic history. The maps are superb and the accompanying texts expertly written.
You will need extra space on your shelf but it's well worth the investment.
If you're a Napoleonic military history buff and a big map geek like me, you'll absolutely flip over this book. Putting a nice, like new copy of this classic reference on your bookshelf will cost you a nice chunk of change, but in my opinion, it's worth every penny.
A fantastic introduction and reference into the campaigns of Napoleon. No work yet published has better maps and the accompanying prose are top notch as well.
