How are the maps in this book? Are they adequate, or will I need to find maps in another source to really follow the narrative?

There are 25 maps. They are grayscale embedded in the text as a third to full page. They seem adequate to follow the narrative.

Actually, the maps are overdone compared with the narrative. The descriptions of the battles the author focuses on are on the one hand oral histories, and on the other rather cursory as to tactical information. As a result, frankly, maps (other than a few general ones) aren't really needed to follow the narrative. However, the maps are often more detailed than the text. Sort of an odd phenomenon (I usually complain about maps not being detailed *enough*).

Help. I have copies of the maps from this book, but cant remember how I got them. I did not download from internet as there is no internet site on bottom of pages which there usually are. Can anyone tell me where or how I could have gotten these. It remains a mystery and is driving me crazy. Thanks. You can write me a ebarbara34@yahoo.com

Somebody xeroxed them so they could hold them at the point they were reading not 25 pages away.
