Campaigns of Napoleon by Chandler is the definitive napoleonic text

Not OP, but I'd love to read books in the Napoleonic era that aren't too academic. I remember reading a sample from a memoir that was written by some British guy during what I think was the second coalition (?), talking about how Scottish troops were the best behaved, and about how Wellington was a ladies man. I wish I could remember the name, it was a great bit of literature and I would have loved to read the whole thing. Anyways, I'd like something that's informative, but not too heavy reading.

To give an example, I don't want Infantry in Attack, I want Panzer Commander.
