This highly detailed new book provides a comprehensive account of the fighting at the Château of Hougoumont on Sunday 18th June 1815, by utilizing the accounts of the officers and men who fought in the Battle of Waterloo. Drawn predominantly from contemporary manuscript sources, it contains a wealth of previously unpublished material, including significant new information from the French and German archives. Extensive new research has revealed that the French made a number of incursions into the farm complex, that the allies sustained critical losses during the fighting in the orchard, and that there were repeated attempts in the early evening by the garrison to secure more ammunition. The authoritative text is supplemented by a series of notes and appendices, and is enhanced by ten color scenes and full color contour maps with troop overlays, thereby making the book an essential addition to every Napoleonic collection.
