      I believe the King's Press has Major-General
      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major-General> Robert Craufurd's standing
      orders. They also have the Mutiny Act, and the King's Regulations for the
      administration of the Army. While these are quite dry, the latter two
      would be required reading for any officer in the British Army. And you can
      bet that every officer of the Light Division was familiar with the first
      one.

      I've a friend who would like to know of 1812 period readings for
      officers (much like Simes and Cuthbertson in Rev War)

      Are there any period publications anyone can recommend?

        There is a wonderful on line resource which I suspect people may not have come across: the Internet Archives: www.archives.org

        This site is the result of a concerted effort by universities (mostly US,I believe) and other institutions to preserve older books, manulas and so on. The site has a basic search engine - titles, author's names and key word searches all turn up results and what it offers is full text versions of hundreds of texts, in HTML and two other formats. One can also search within any text (using the Cntrl F function.)

        As an example, the Archives hold the complete records of the Wisconsin Historical Society: thousands of pages of correspondence and recollections by key figures from the NorthWest in our period. The Archive also holds texts of a number field manuals for officers, both US and British.
