Hope you don't mind me adding to! :D

For those who may read German ... I added the rare but very important book of Pflugk-Harttung with German sources about Waterloo on my site.

Just go to http://www.napoleon-online.de/quellen_monatsbuch.html and scroll down, there you find the "Download" text.

Most of the English books covering the German part of the battle take accounts from the Pflugk-Harttung book.
