Making extensive use of previously unpublished material this book gives an unprecedented view of the Waterloo Campaign from the viewpoint of a single regiment. It reveals the preparations that preceded the battle, the role of the regiment in the battle, and the long months spent in France after Paris fell, until the regiment finally returned home in December 1815. An Order Book for the year, and letters and diaries of several officers, shed light on the internal life of the regiment and their – occasionally humorous – social life.

"When combined with A Troop’s Order Book, the reader is left with a fascinating account of a cavalry troop on campaign! Highly recommended! The Napoleon Series
