Wellington's Belgian Allies 1815 Paperback
by Ronald Pawly
Illustrated by Patrice Courcelle
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
Early British accounts of the Dutch-Belgian troops' part in Quatre Bras and Waterloo were, at best, grudging, and have been repeated ever since without serious examination.
Contemporary documents in Continental archives now reveal the truth - that these troops, representing a third of Wellington's army, fought hard and took heavy casualties.
An expert Napoleonic researcher and art historian present the evidence regarding the Belgian units; explain their complex origins; and illustrate the text with many new monochrome studies and colour plates of troop uniforms.
