INTERNET EXTRAS:
Maps and Documents

Posted below are documents and maps referenced in On Waterloo: Clausewitz, Wellington, and the Campaign of 1815, but which could not be included in the printed book. These include the published German text of Der Feldzug von 1815 in Frankreich, in Hinterlassene Werke des Generals Carl von Clausewitz über Krieg und Kriegsführung (Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler, 1835/1862) and Lord Liverpool's partial translation given to Wellington. Clausewitz's original study of the Waterloo campaign contained no printed maps, but it referred to a set of maps in an atlas prepared by the Prussian General Staff in the 1820s, August Wagner's Plane der Schlachten und Treffen welche von der preussischen Armee in den Feldzügen der Jahre 1813, 14 und 15 geliefert worden, 4 volumes (Berlin: G. Reimer, 1825). The printed version of On Waterloo: Clausewitz, Wellington, and the Campaign of 1815 contains details from two of those maps. On this internet page, however, we are able to include images of the complete maps, plus a few other maps from various sources that may be helpful to readers.
