Review of Andrew Field’s Book on Grouchy

By Gareth Glover / a few months ago

This series of Andrew Field’s books, translating French accounts of the Waterloo campaign into English and describing the campaign from their side, goes from strength to strength. I had some small reservations in his handling of Volume 1 covering Quatre Bras, but his Waterloo book was excellent and if possible his book covering¬† Ligny and Wavre is even better, dealing with a part of the campaign rarely covered well in British histories of the campaign, particularly the 17-19 June. Thoroughly recommended.

I see his fourth volume, the rout & retreat to Paris, will I am sure be of just as high a standard and I look forward to reading it.
