Don't know where to post this but i'll just post it here.

Does anyone recommend a book(s) specifically focusing on Napoleon's campaigns/battles rather than his life?
Chandler's the Campaigns of Napoleon is apparently the definitive scholarship on Napoleon's battles and campaigns.

Knowing that Bavaria was in alliance with France and being German do they have ranks like Prussia, Austria, France, or some of each? Also does anyone know what a list of ranks would be for Bavaria

In 1804, a Bavarian regiment's structure was as follows:
Spoiler
1 Regimentsinhaber (a position held by a general)
1 Oberst (Colonel)
1 Obrist-Lieutenant (Lt. Colonel)
2 Majoren (Major)
2 Adjutanten (Adjutant)
2 Junkern (Officer candidates and colour-bearers)
1 Regiments-Quartier-Meister
1 Auditor
1 Regiments-Chirurg (Regimental Surgeon)
2 Unterchirurgen (Junior [Battalion] Surgeons)
2 Chirurg-Prakitanten (Assistant Surgeons)
1 Regiments-Tambour (Regimental Drummer)
10 Hoboisten (10 Oboists)
1 Profos (Provost)
1 Profosenjung (Provost's Assistant)
1 Büchsenmacher (Barrelmaker or Gunsmith)
5 Hauptleute (Captain)
5 [Stabs-]Kapitänen (Captain-Lieutenant, they commanded the 5 Leib-Companies in lieu of the Inhaber, Colonel, Lt. Col. and Majors)
10 Oberlieutenants (First Lieutenant)
20 Unterlieutenants (Second Lieutenant)
10 Feldwebeln (Sergeants Major)
10 Fourieren (Quarters and Forage Sergeant)
20 Sergenten (Sergeant)
60 Korporalen (Corporal)
2 Pfeifen (Fifer)
20 Tambouren (Company Drummer)
120 Gefreiten (Exempt or Senior Private)
