    Om 1815 - Waterloo [Illustrated Edition]

    This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader.Waterloo Illustration Pack - 14 maps/battle plans, 18 portraits of the personalities engaged, 10 illustrations.Houssaye's history of the 1815 campaign stands out as perhaps the most complete and least biased French account of the campaign that culminated in the downfall of Napoleon. Filled with detail from numerous French sources and written in a light style, it provides a complete look at the campaign whilst keeping the narrative to a reasonable length. There is also an occasional flash of wit - usually missing from French accounts, substituted instead with accusation and counter accusation - which makes the book a real joy to read. For example, speaking of Grouchy on the morning of the 18th"Grouchy was eating some strawberries (to eat strawberries is not, moreover, a hanging matter, even on a morning of battle),..."Henry Houssaye, an esteemed member of the French Institute, wrote a number of works on the Napoleonic period (mainly of the later years of Napoleon), amongst them plays and ancient history.Title - 1815 - WaterlooAuthor - Henry Houssaye (1848-1911)Translation - S.
