Books on Napoleonic & Revolutionary Wars

Rothenberg Gunther E.: The Art of Warfare in the Age of Napoleon

This is one is great, it gives a good understanding on the general period and also provides plenty of examples and details. I quite often quote Rothenberg in my videos, since his statements and examples are usually short and on point.

Fighting Techniques of the Napoleonic Age 1792 – 1815: Equipment, Combat Skills, and Tactics

This one is written by several scholars and is a great addition, I particularly found it useful for my cavalry combat video, since it provided information that was not as detailed in other books.
