By the end of June 15, 1815 it was clear that the scourge of Napoleon had been lifted from the fields of Europe, but what was the secret of the forces that held fast that day? With this fully illustrated book, the author has produced the definitive, single volume reference to the mighty British army of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century, an army that went on to glory at every point of the compass. From the French Revolutionary Wars to the final battle, every aspect of the forces of the “Iron Duke” are explained, including the composition and evolution of some of the most famous regiments in the world.
