WALCHEREN TO WATERLOO: THE BRITISH ARMY IN THE LOW COUNTRIES DURING FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY AND NAPOLEONIC WARS 1793-1815.
240pp., 20 illus. 2018. Is the focus on Wellington’s successes really an appropriate way to understand the performance of the British army in a conflict which lasted over twenty years? And what about the army’s poor record in the Low Countries, where it suffered defeats and sustained crippling losses during the same period? In this perceptive and highly readable study Andrew Limm answers these questions and provides a more balanced account of the British contribution to the downfall of Napoleon.
