I recently purchased "The Waterloo Companion" by Mark Adkin

It is a reference volume on the Battle divided into 10 sections discussing all aspects of the battle.

I am a fan of Mr. Adkin. he has published several reference volumes (I have the Gettysburg volume).

I thoroughly enjoy his work and recommend both books.

Wow, I would have expected a book on Waterloo to burn the hands of any avid Frenchman who held it, you know, kinda like Holy Water. :twisted: :wink: :mrgreen:

His significant other probably has to hold it and he has to wear sunglasses too.

Another book I recommend is Wellington, Years of the Sword by Elizabeth Longford, an interesting book and she describes the war in the Peninsular very well.

Probably not a book one reads ............front to back.

I am constantly perusing..........jumping from chapter to chapter.

I use it as a reference.............there are great stories and facts throughout.

I am making the attempt, but can't read anything except for the prologue text without using a magnifying glass... :shock:
