This highly detailed new book is the first of two concerned with the role of the Netherlands troops during the Waterloo campaign, and forms part of an exciting new series on the events of June 1815. Drawn exclusively from contemporary manuscript sources, the book contains a wealth of previously unpublished material written by officers and men who served with the Netherlands contingent within the Allied army commanded by the Duke of Wellington, all of which has been professionally translated into English. The details contained within the letters and reports provides significant new information on many of the most critical moments in the campaign, including the communication with the Duke of Wellington and his staff on the 15th June, following confirmation of the French advance; the role of the Netherlands troops during the early stages of the fighting at Les Quatre Bras, and the part played by the 3rd Netherlands Division during the attack by the Imperial Guard at the climax of the battle of Waterloo. The extraordinary text is supplemented by colour contour maps and ten pages of full colour illustrations by Gerry Embleton, making the book is an essential addition to every Waterloo collection.
