Pages clean and bright in firm binding. A great many books have been written about the Battle of Waterloo but non quite like this; the reader can feel the shock of battle almost as if he were there. The first shots were fired at about eleven-thirty on a Sunday morning in June 1815. By nine o'clock that night, forty thousand men and ten thousand horses lay dead or wounded among the Belgian cornfields, and Napoleon had fled, abandoning his army and all hope of recovering his empire - and also, it was said, two million pounds worth of diamonds sewn into the lining of his uniform. This is the story of the men who were there. From their recollections, the author has recreated the battle as it appeared to them on the day it was fought - what they saw and heard, the little that they knew of what was happening, and above all what they felt.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
