First published in March, 1844, this superb account of the Waterloo Campaign in 1815 was sold out within a few days. A second edition followed in August of the same year, a third edition in 1848 before this fourth edition was published in 1904. It is a very detailed and highly regarded account which contains a total of fourteen plates and fifteen maps and plans. There are also a number of appendices including lists of officers. A valuable addition to any Napoleonic Wars library.
