I’m looking to compile source material for a very long list of battles, big, medium and small. I’m looking for the following categories of information:
Summaries of events
I have quite a few good starting places for many battles but everything has holes as is to be expected. So I’m asking for advice on where to dig into the following battles:
• La Rothière
• Mincio River (Italy)

I take it you’re familiar with Michael Leggiere’s first volume in the Cambridge Military History of 1814? Unfortunately he seems to have been distracted from starting the second volume, and the first is really just setting the scene around the diplomacy and campaign start. A real shame! I believe that George Nafziger is on the cusp of publishing a continuation of his 1813 trilogy on 1814, so that should be good for OOBs! His maps are usually pretty good too! So it seems to be all ‘jam tommorrow’ at the moment…04/08/2014 at 06:09 #3117

I am, though I haven’t acquired a copy yet. I am hoping his second volume does come along.

Oh wow. That I did not know. Can I ask where you heard? I may need to ping George, that would be very exciting indeed. I have his OBs for 1814 but if he is putting together maps similar to his 1813 books… man, that’d be nice.04/08/2014 at 23:15 #3297
I actually heard it on TMP, but the original tell was on the Napoleon series. Coming out in July apparently ?!? -but its The Emperor’s Press we are talking about – they don’t do fast – excellent, yes, fast, not so much!

Have some more info about the George F Nafziger 1814 trilogy; first off is ‘ The End of Empire” and its putative publishing date is 28 Dec 2014:05/08/2014 at 22:13 #3465Mick SayceParticipant
Baron Fain, Memoirs of the Invasion of France 1814, Trotman Books, 1991 is quite interesting. It says on the cover that it was ‘Written at the Command of the Emperor’.
Lorraine Petre, F., Napoleon at Bay 1814, Arms and Armour Press, 1977. His whole series of Napoleonic Campaign books are very informative.
