The Armies of Wellington/Philip J. Haythornthwaite. Brockhampton Press. Hardcover. New edition 1998. Out of print. Condition: Very good. ISBN: 186019849X

This is the most comprehensive account ever published of the effect that this one man had on the British Army during the Napoleonic era. A profusely illustrated study, it sets out to demonstrate Wellington’s flexibility by showing the changes he employed in the various theatres of war in which he was active. It is not simply another biography but an assessment of how he adapted both the equipment and the structure of his troops for each of his very different campaigns.
