History of the Waterloo Campaign

By Captain W. Siborne


This famous account of the 1815 campaign is distinguished by its detailed information and clarity. From the landing of Napoleon in France on 26 February to the St Cloud Convention on 3 July, Siborne comprehensively records the strength, composition and distribution of the opposing armies. He covers every action from the opening cannonade of the French advance on Thuin, through the battles of Quatre Bras, Ligny, Waterloo and Wavre, to the investment of Paris and the final confrontation at Issy and Neuilly. The operations of the Allied armies that invaded France along her eastern and south-eastern frontiers until hostilities ceased in September 1815 are covered in a supplement.

Siborne's history of Waterloo is essential and gripping reading for all those who are interested in how this famous battle was fought and won.
