Looking for a decent title specifically pertaining to the Spring Campaign of 1813. Anyone know of any ? All I can find thus far is the Osprey version 'Lutzen & Bautzen'

Thanks Boys!! :mrgreen:

The Nafziger book on it is great. It is also super expensive so I recommend inter-library loan....

I'll see your Nafziger and raise you a Duffy

http://www.amazon.com/Russias-Military-Way-West-1700-1800/dp/0710007973/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382574216&sr=1-1&keywords=Russia%27s+Military+Way+to+the+West%3A+Origins+and+Nature+of+Russian+Military+Power

There was 1 copy for $150 but its gone now :cry:


But the absolute prize of my collection, at least in terms of rarity, is John Childs' The British Army and the Nine Years War: Operations in the Low Countries 1688-1697. Amazon has 3 copies starting at $644.95! Which no one else lists (in hardcover) so I am guessing they have been sold. Although it is available new in a 2013 paperback edition for under $40.

http://www.amazon.com/Nine-Years-British-Army-1688-1697/dp/0719034612/ref=sr_1_2_title_0_main?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382574587&sr=1-2&keywords=Operations+in+the+Low+Countries

I got it for about what the Nafziger book cost after having it on my want list on abebooks and alibris for several years. The Nine Years War and War of the Spanish Succession are very hard to find books on, except for biographies of Marlborough or the battle of Blenheim alone. The Great Northern War the same, Peter the Great bios or books on Poltava.

Childs' Warfare in the Seventeenth Century is also excellent if you like the period, and fairly priced.
