TRIUMPHS AND DISASTERS Eyewitness Accounts of the Netherlands Campaign 1813-1814


In the closing months of 1813, with Napoleon’s forces largely expelled from Germany and the allied armies advancing towards the Rhine, insurrection began to break out in the Netherlands. With Britain having a keen interest in this part of the world, and placing some importance on its being retained in friendly hands, it was decided to dispatch an armed force of around 7,000 men in order to aid the insurgents. Carefully researched and expertly compiled by historian Andrew Bamford, this is a valuable and absorbing new source, which will be of great interest to Napoleonic students.
