This is THE BEST book on Napoleon's Egyptian campaign available in English. Herold is a fantastic writer and tells the story of Napoleon's campaign here with phenomenal detail. If you want to learn about Napoleon's Egyptian adventures, this is the book.
This book tells the story not only of the battles, but of Napoleon's savants, it tells how his men discovered Egypt, it dedicates an entire chapter to Louis Desaix, basically it has it all.
Highly recommended. Credit Gordo.
