Waterloo Relics, Paperback / softback Book

Waterloo Relics Paperback / softback


Waterloo, the plain where Napoleon's Empire was dealt its final blow after a titanic fight, is not only a name on the map.

La Haye-Sainte, Hougoumont, Plancenoit, are real places where men struggled, suffered and died.

In this book, the authors retrace the phases of the famous battle.

But moreover, they lead the reader deep into history by showing the artifacts, weapons, uniforms and pieces of equipment that have survived after more than two centuries. From Napoleon's hat to Wellington's pad, from a simple uniform button to a rusted bayonet found on the very ground of the battlefield, these fabulous relics help us revisit the day of June 18th 1815. Packed with dozens of color images of uniforms and equipment.
