of the Napoleonic Wars

A series of books for the wargamer and enthusiast by W. J. Rawkins


This long out of print series of books is now once again available, revised and updated in printable E-book format by digital download or on DVD-Rom.  Our plan is to publish at least two new or revised titles during 2019 from the titles most requested by customers.

Our E-books are produced as a PDF file, which can be read on any PDF reader, or may be opened with a Kindle app on a PC, Laptop or other reader.  (The illustrated large format of the book does not really lend itself to small hand held readers such as telephones.)   The books are illustrated throughout in full colour with uniform details taken from original artwork by the author and enhanced with many illustrations by contemporary and well known established artists.  The book is fully printable up to A4 size format.





The easy POST FREE option.  Simply select the DIGITAL DOWNLOAD option at the checkout and a secure link will be sent to you by e-mail from which you can download your purchases.  Each digital purchase consists of a PDF Book File and an accessory sheet of disc labels and artwork for a DVD case for clients who wish to create their own back-up disc.  The link may be accessed for 48 hours from purchase during which period the files may be downloaded a maximum of three times.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure your firewall and spam filter are set up to receive mail from us before ordering dowload links . 






The book file is available loaded to a suitable good quality DVD disc with a optional printed disc label.  You can order discs directly from this site or from Amazon or E-bay by visiting the Ordering page for the links and the UK and Overseas postage rates.
