Waterloo 1815 : Quatre Bras Volume 1 Paperback

Illustrated by Gerry Embleton

Part of the Campaign series



To commemorate the 2015 bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the defining campaigns in European History, Osprey is replacing its single volume Campaign title covering the whole of the battle with three highly detailed volumes.

Based on new research drawn from unpublished first-hand accounts these volumes will provide a comprehensive resource for every aspect of the battle.

The first of this trilogy details the battle of Quatre Bras where an initial 8,000 Allied troops faced 48,000 men of the French Armee du Nord under Marshal Ney.

Realising his error, Wellington concentrated his troops at the strategic crossroads of Quatre Bras where they just managed to hold off Ney's attacks.

The battle ended in a tactical stalemate but, unable to link up with Blucher's Prussians, Wellington retreated back along the road to Brussels to new positions at Waterloo.

Featuring extensive photographs, full colour artworks, maps and bird's-eye-views, this first instalment is not to be missed.
