Publisher Synopsis

Studies of military strategy relating to major battles often ignore the human element, the way in which individual soldiers can change affairs - or even what it means to them. This is a fascinating Read more...

   schema:description ""[In this] new series, acclaimed Napoleonic scholar Gareth Glover brings together previously unpublished material relating to the Battle of Waterloo. The hitherto unseen British material contained in Vol. 1 includes: a series of letters written by a senior officer on Wellington's Staff to Sir Thomas Graham immediately following the battle; the letters of a member of the Wedgewood family in the Guards at Waterloo; the journal of Sgt. Johnston of the Scots Greys, detailing all his experiences, including a very rare transcript of his own court martial; letters from eminent surgeons including those of Hume, Davy and Haddy James, who served at Waterloo with their harrowing tales of the wounds suffered. Vol. 2 concerns German troops which formed the majority of Wellington's forces present at the Battle of Waterloo including those of Nassau, Brunswick, Hanover and the King's German Legion, and left a large number of first-hand accounts of their role in the battle. Early British histories of the battle have largely sidelined the achievements of the German troops, and there is a great need to provide an English version of much of the original German source material to redress the imbalance. This volume is intended to remedy that situation by publishing sixty of these reports and letters fully translated into English for the first time, giving a clearer insight into the significant role these troops played"--Publisher."@en ;
