Complete facsimile of all the steel-plate engravings, containing 134 maps, colour coded for troop positions, covering campaigns and battles from the Italian Campaigns in the Valley of the Po in 1796, to the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. This is an important atlas of significance for Napoleonic students. Jomini was a Swiss officer who served as a general in the French and later in the Russian service, and one of the most celebrated writers on the Napoleonic art of war. Jomini's ideas were a staple at military academies, the United States Military Academy at West Point being a prominent example; his theories were thought to have affected many officers who later served in the American Civil War. General Halleck commanded the Department of the Missouri and then the Department of the Mississippi. He led the Union forces during the Corinth campaign before he became the commanding general of the Army on 13 July 1862. He served as commanding general until 9 March 1864, when he was designated as the chief of staff.
