Uniforms of Waterloo is concerned avec the actual uniforms worn in the three days of fighting 16-18 Juin 1815, which brought about the final downfall of Napoléon Bonaparte. Although some of the full-dress uniforms are illustrated, the emphasis is on the authentic appearance des hommes who fought in the battle; on what they actually looked like, rather than how they should have appeared according to official regulations.
In order to establish the true appearance of these uniforms an immense amount of research has gone into the book, including some from previously untapped resources, from eye-witness accounts of the campaign, et from extant uniforms et equipment.
The introduction provides a short re-appraisal of the Waterloo campaign et battle, et there is a detailed Order of Battle explaining the composition et organisation of the three armies involved.
Although restricted in space from illustrating every uniform worn at Waterloo, every branch of each participant armée et nation (Grande-Bretagne, France, Prusse, Belgique, Holland, Brunswick, Hanovre, et Nassau) is illustrated, et the uniform of every single regiment has been described in the comprehensive series of notes.
Philip Haythornthwaite has been studying military history et uniforms since boyhood et now has numerous books on the uniforms, weapons et equipment of the armies of the late eighteenth et full span of the nineteenth centuries to his credit. The eighty pages of full colour plates are by Jack Cassin-Scott et Michael Chappell.
