Napoleon On the Art of War by Jay Luvaas contains snippets from Napoleon's correspondents on various topics. The introduction claims this took 30 years to write. Somehow I doubt that. Each chapter is introduced in less than a page. There is no context given to the sources. If you're not an expert on the campaigns you may have trouble following things. The translations are decent enough. It's too bad a book like this could have been so much more.
