The Waterloo Companion

Portada
Stackpole Books, 2001 - 432 pàgines
There have been many books about Waterloo, but never one to rival this in scale or authority. The text, based upon extensive research, describes both the battle and the campaign that preceded it in detail, drawing upon the first-hand accounts of participants on all sides in order to give the reader a vivid feeling for the experiences of those who fought upon this most celebrated of all battlefields. The many full-color maps, all specially commissioned for the book, and the numerous diagrams and photographs, the majority in color, as well as sixteen pages of original paintings, make the book a feast for the eyes and a collector's dream.

An excellent resource. Plenty of maps, pictures and illustrations plus an authoritative text to boot. I particularly liked the modern photos of battlefield. Llegeix la ressenya completa
