Waterloo by Gilles Bernard

Book Description

Waterloo, the Belgian plain where Napoleon's Empire received its final blow following a titanic struggle, is not only a name on a map and in the history books. La Haye-Saint, Hougoumont, Plancenoit were, and are, real places where men struggled, suffered and died. In this new study of Waterloo, the authors retrace all the phases and events of the famous battle. They lead you deep into the past by showing you the artefacts, weapons, uniforms and equipment that have survived the last two centuries. From Napoleon's hat to Wellington's pad, from a simple uniform battle to a rusted bayonet found on the actual battlefield, these evocative relics help you to understand and actually "revisit" the events of June 18th, 1815. A classic "Histoire & Collections" book on Napoleonic history that is an a large format, and illustrated in full colour with top quality production standards. The authors are both renowned specialists in the field of military archaeology. It is fully illustrated with many items never published before: historic engravings, photographs of original artefacts, uniforms and weapons.
