So much has been written on the subject of the Battle of Waterloo and the campaign that surrounds it that the reader might think that there is simply nothing new to tell. However, the archives of Europe are teeming with fascinating documents – personal letters to family and friends, private journals and official reports – that have been virtually ignored in many standard histories of the period.
In the ground-breaking Waterloo Archive series Gareth Glover has set out to unearth this buried material and to finally expose it to public scrutiny. In doing so he brings the human aspect of war and military campaigning to the fore: the humour and exhilaration, the fears and miseries, the starvation and exhaustion, the horror and the joy. He also provides an invaluable new source which will challenge preconceptions, disprove theories, destroy myths and allow for a complete re-evaluation of many key aspects of the campaign.
In this sixth and final volume in the series, published to coincide with the two hundredth anniversary of the campaign, Glover has again turned his attention to the British sources.
