Description - Galloping at Everything by Ian Fletcher
The poor discipline demonstrated by the British cavalry commanded by general Slade at Maguilla in 1812 prompted the Duke of Wellington's famous remark that British cavalry officers were in the habit of 'galloping at everything. This work rehabilitates the reputation of the British cavalry in the Peninsula and at Waterloo.
