Müffling is best known for his role as Prussian liaison officer in the Duke of Wellington's headquarters during the Waterloo Campaign. As such, he was one of the architects of the allied victory.
This was, however, not Müffling's only achievement. He was for much of his military career a staff officer with a speciality in cartography. His maps were used throughout the 19th century. He later became chief-of-staff of the Prussian Army.
While Müffling's memoirs give an insight into many events in this dramatic period of history, one needs to take into account the circumspect way he relates certain errors he made. 
As one of the few Prussian accounts of this period that has been translated into English, this work should be read by all people interested in it.
