1815: The Waterloo Campaign - Peter Hofschroer - Hardcover - Very Good

Regular price $24.95

1815: The Waterloo Campaign is an unique reassessment of the Hundred Days and a powerful analysis of the events of the epic confrontation at Waterloo. This study is the first of two volumes and is a thoroughly researched examination of the opening moves of the campaign from an entirely new perspective and based on evidence never before presented to an English-speaking audience.

In addition to a gripping narrative of events, fundamental questions are raised about the Duke of Wellington and his relationship with his Prussian allies. It is in dealing with the controversial theory that Wellington deceived the Prussians, and subsequent historians of the campaign, that the most far-reaching conclusions are drawn.

Peter Hofschröer undermines the traditional view of the campaign as being one fought out by the French and the British, by presenting the events from the point of view of the majority of the Allied participants: the Germans.

Using German source material from archives, most of which has never been published in English before, the crucial role of troops from Prussia, Hanover and smaller German states in the Waterloo campaign is revealed.
