Waterloo: A Near Run Thing/David Howarth. Fontana Books. Softcover. 1972. Out of print. Condition: Fair, some creasing of cover, and tanning to end papers and page edges. ISBN: 0006530494
Illustrated by contemporary engravings, drawings, paintings and maps, this is perhaps the most vivid account of Waterloo ever written. Based on eighteen principal eye-witness accounts, together with a similar number of biographies and memoirs, and a large number of personal letters adding isolated details, it creates an active sense of participation and an indelible memory of this famous battle.
