Are there any good English language books on the Bourbons in Naples? Looking for general histories, military aspects would be a plus. Mostly interested in post-Napoleonic Italy, but also interested in pre-Napoleonic as well. Thanks!

Seen late but a response better late than never….
The best in English are those by Harold Acton:
The Bourbons of Naples (1734-1825), London, Methuen, 1956
The Last Bourbons of Naples (1825-1861), London, Methuen, 1961

More general but cover Bourbons are:
Naples: a Palimpsest, in 1961 by Peter Gunn
Street Fight in Naples: A City's Unseen History by Peter Robb

and on the web:
