Riassunto: Waterloo is probably the most famous battle in military history. Thousands of books have been written on the subject and yet so many mysteries remain, so much controversy abounds. Letters from the Battle of Waterloo, by presenting more than 200 previously unpublished accounts by Allied officers who fought at the battle, goes right back to primary source material. In the letters the Allied officers recount where they were and what they saw. Gareth Glover has provided background historical information but lets the officers speak for themselves as they reveal exactly what happened on the 16, 17 and 18 June 1815. Originally sent to, and at the request of, Captain W. Siborne, then in the process of building his famous model of the battle, these letters have remained unread in the Siborne papers in the British Library. A selection of material was published in Waterloo Letters in 1891 but much of vast historical significance did not see the light then and has remained inaccessible until now.
L'autore: Gareth Glover is the editor of the acclaimed Letters from the Battle of Waterloo: Unpublished Correspondence by Allied Officers from the Siborne Papers.
