Convert currency. Add to Basket. Compare all 20 new copies. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Much of the material available to readers in the English language interested in the exploits of the troops of Hanover, Brunswick and Nassau is in the form of dry official reports which stick to the basic facts and avoid all sentimentality and emotion. However, unbeknown to virtually anyone in the English speaking world interested in the more human aspects of these 'foreign' troops fighting alongside the British at Waterloo, there are a number of memoirs and sets of letters which have been published in Germany over the last two centuries.
This volume seeks to put this right and to bring to life the human story of these German troops - their trials and tribulations, their sufferings and their emotions - and to finally reveal their views on the battle which many entered with mixed emotions. Highlights include an account of the confusion in the final 'great advance' at Waterloo; eyewitness recollections of the defence of La Haye Sainte; rare battle reports by the Duke of Wellington; and a fascinating series of letters explaining the whereabouts of a number of 'missing' Hanoverian regimental and staff surgeons and subsequent court martials.

Established seller since Seller Inventory GB Most of the book is either after action reports by the commanders of the various battalions and brigades or letters home by junior officers, written immediately after the battle of Waterloo. The battle of Quatre Bras receives quite a bit of attention because it was the Dutch and Germans who held the key crossroads until the British could arrive.
Many of the accounts are by junior officers who vividly describe the bitter fighting and the heavy casualties they took while they tried to delay the French until reinforcements arrived. The Brunswick Corps is well represented with a report by Colonel Augustus von Herzberg, who was attached to the Brunswick headquarters, after serving as the commander of the Brunswick Oels during the Peninsular War.
It includes a detailed breakdown of the force, listing the commander of each infantry battalion and cavalry regiment and its strength.
He also includes the supporting artillery, the military police, the staff and the aides-de-camp. Furthermore he provides a description of the uniform of each unit. Included in the report is a description of the horse each commander rode. For example the Duke of Brunswick rode a light brown gelding  , while Major Metzner, commander of the 1st Line Battalion rode a black English mare.
He also includes anecdotes of the bravery of different enlisted soldiers. The Brunswick accounts also has two letters from Colonel Olfermann to the Brunswick Privy Council one written the night after Quatre Bras and the other the day after Waterloo. The Nassau and Hanoverian continents are well represented with 47 and 37 pages of material respectively.
The Hanoverian Landwehr is also has a wide variety of material written not just on the infantry, but the cavalry and artillery. Most were written by junior officers, but some were by senior officers. Mr Glover continues to add to the wealth of information on the KGL with another 32 pages of material. One of the most fascinating portions of the book was in the section on the Medical Services. Apparently the medical staff could not be found and the brigade commander wanted to know why.

What follows was a series of reports from the six officers, who abandoned their command, and their attempts to cover up their actions. If the commander did not like their answer, he would ask for clarification. If the officer provided a name of someone to verify his report, Colonel Vincke then had those individuals interviewed and provide statements of what transpired.
The Waterloo Archive, Volume 4: British Sources
The reports by the surgeons provide a detailed description of the chaos in the rear of the Allied forces during the late afternoon of the battle. Sprinkled throughout the pages are comments and observations by Colonel Vincke. Unfortunately, the reader is left with just the reports and there is no indication whether the officers were court-martialed for their conduct.
