Historical Maps of the Napoleonic Wars

Postby Lady Meg » Sun Jun 26, 2005 11:03 pm

Historical Maps of the Napoleonic Wars by Forty and Swift. A wonderful book to pick up for any of you that have the obsession with maps that we history fans tend to cart around with us. :D Even for those that don?t really care about such things, the prologue of the book begins with a brief outline of the Nappy era and some really fascinating pictures of a discharge certificate and a fella who fought at Waterloo. It?s a real photo of this guy, blew me away, but then again I can be easily amazed at times. :lol:

However the real thrill is all of the maps held within. They are works of art; hand drawn maps of Italy, France, Spain, Russia, USA, battlefields, Napoleon?s residence on St. Helena, and for those navy crazies like myself, ports and maritime battles are included too. I hope you all of the chance to at least look through this book if anything for it aethereal feel.

Couldn't you have said 'Cheap Skate' or something less offensive?

well i guess i could, but it doesnt have the same effect.

Sorry if it offends. But i include myself in that category as i dont spend much money on stuff like that. And im not including anyone else in this title. if anyone else feels like one feel free to clame the title. :wink:
