Stumbled across another site that may be of interest. Apart from the Napoleonic period it also has Crimea, 1898 war, 1812 US war, etc.
Her is the link to the Napoleonic summaries page followed by a listing of one of the volumes. It seems to be an out of copyright dealer who collates varies military themes and sells in pdf format. These may be available on guttenberg or similar but I suppose the work of finding them is done for you and they dont seem that expensive.
