Letters from the Battle of Waterloo

Be the first to review this product

Over 400 unpublished letters from officers who were present at the Battle of Waterloo, in which they described their experiences to William Siborne, have lain largely ignored in the British Library for over a century. This book finally makes these letters readily available to both serious academics and the general reader who has an interest in that greatest of all battles, Waterloo. Over 200 letters are published in full, the rest in brief summary; it is provided with copious notes to identify all officers mentioned; explain the various controvercies regarding the battle and how the new information contained in these letters impacts on these issues. A number of letters from King's German Legion and Prussian Officers were written in old German, these have all been translated, allowing the reader to also gain a great deal of insight into the German view of the battle.
This book will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to our understanding of the Waterloo campaign and will also question some established views.
