5 Reviews
There have been many books about Waterloo, but never one to rival this in scale or authority. The text, based upon extensive research, describes both the battle and the campaign that preceded it in detail, drawing upon the firsthand accounts of participants on all sides in order to give the reader a vivid feeling for the experiences of those who fought upon this most celebrated of all battlefields. The many full-colour maps, all specially commissioned for the book, and the numerous diagrams and photographs, the majority in colour, as well as sixteen pages of original paintings, make the book a feast for the eyes and a collector's dream.
