Description: Arms and Armour, London, 1996.. 256 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1854092456 B&w plates, maps/battle plans. "This collection of ten Napoleonic actions has been created to demonstrate just some of the features of warfare from that period. The natura l drama of those days at Marengo, Eylau, Albuera and Waterloo needs no invented scenes, no artificial inflation of the leadership shown, no exaggeration of individual courage, and, realising that, (the author) allows the facts to stand alone. H e p r ovides the detail required to comprehend the complexities of Napoleonic warfare and sources needed to aid further study; his empathetic style encourages the reader into the position of the men of the 57th who responded to the words of thei r c ol o ne l at Albuera ('Die hard, 57th, die hard!')." Slight bump at top/bottom of spine, small light stain on top of text block, remainder mark (dots) on bottom of text block and front board. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of sp i ne and a lon g top edge - mainly on rear panel, very light rubbing and small faint line indentations on panels. Very Good/Very Good.
