Waterloo Archive Volume V: British Sources

Gareth Glover [Ed]
Another superb book in this series. This one has tapped a very rich seam of material hitherto inaccessible to anyone unable to read German. Though the whole book is most interesting Appendix 2 in particular appealed to me. It records some of the 'Glorious Feats' performed by men of the KGL and Hanoverian Army. There are also some excellent reproductions of original illustrations of uniforms and 'battle' scenes. See review of Volume VI for comment on the whole series.
