A few days, a couple books, you know.

First was Osprey Campaign #25: Leipzig 1813: The Battle of the Nations which was an important campaign of the Napoleonic Wars. The Emperor was trying to assert himself after the defeat in Russia, and failed. Usually I'm pretty happy with these Osprey books; they are quick reads chock full of plates, photos and maps, but somehow this one fell flat for me. Oh, well.

Next was Osprey Elite #83: Napoleon's Commanders (2): c. 1809 – 15 which was a compendium of French generals of the period, each with maybe a paragraph or two. As a fast overview, OK. Not exactly an in depth look. Better graphics in this one than the last.
