Having played a Napoleonic campaign with these maps. I would highly recommend them. great Maps.

Place names are not contemporary for the Napoleonic period, at least on the Northern Germany map. I live in Wilhelmshaven, which did not exist before 1871. Until then, it was just a collection of neighbouring villages, none of which was called by that name.

Can you download and print these maps? I tried, but could only get the larger area/less detail versions to print. When I enlarged them to get the better detail and tried to print, the less detailed would print, regardless. Am I doing something wrong? I agree, a great set of maps. Thanks.

yeah, I have not figured out how to get a high resolution either. They are sweet. Just what I wanted for a Silesian Wars Campaign system that I am working on.

These maps are lovely, I've used them myself.

However. The maps are in JPG format, so the lines are made up of individual pixels. When you try and blow up a pixel it just does that. So they tend to get fuzzy as the program you are using tries to decide if a single pixel which has now become 4 or 16 pixels in a square shape is white or black depending on what is next to it. So a sharp black/white image becomes Black/White and a whole bunch of varying shades of grey.

If the maps were in some scalable format, like PNG, then the black/white clarity would remain no matter how big they got.

It's worse if you're doing it in colour. You've just got to tough it out or use them as a base, import them into some other mapping /drawing program and redo.

Also remember that these maps do not join together seamlessly. The creator had other things in mind, so you cannot use them to create a super map of Europe without a huge investment of time.

Sad to report this very fine set of map's link now shows 404 err.

I have these maps and although they looked great at first, we kept discovering glaring errors on them. Cities like Bremerhaven & Wilhelmshaven, which didn't exist in the Napoleonic era. Cities on the wrong sides of major rivers, like Cologne and Koblenz. He even puts Istanbul on the wrong side of the Turkish straits.
