About this product
- DescriptionEarly British accounts of the Dutch-Belgian troops' part in Quatre Bras and Waterloo were, at best, grudging, and have been repeated ever since without serious examination. Contemporary documents in Continental archives w reveal the truth - that these troops, representing a third of Wellington's army, fought hard and took heavy casualties. An expert Napoleonic researcher and art historian present the evidence regarding the Belgian units; explain their complex origins; and illustrate the text with many new mochrome studies and colour plates of troop uniforms.
- Author BiographyRonald Pawly is a respected member of several international societies for Napoleonic studies, and an expert on 19th century military portraiture. He is the author of the monumental 'The Red Lancers: Anatomy of a Napoleonic Regiment' (Crowood Press, 1998), and of a study of Napoleonic veterans' tombs in Belgium; and has contributed to two major French reference works, 'Repertoire Mondiale des Souvenirs Napoleoniens' and 'Dictionnaire des Colonels de Napoleon'. Patrice Courcelle was born in northern France in 1950 and has been a professional illustrator for some 20 years. Entirely self-taught; he has illustrated many books and magazine articles for Continental publishers, and his work hangs in a number of public and private collections. His dramatic and lucid style has won him plenty of admiration in the field of military illustration. His other enthusiasms include music, from Clapton and the blues to Mahler, and cooking. Patrice lives a few miles from the battlefield of Waterloo with his wife and son.
