In this sixth and final volume in the coming to the end, of this magnificent and groundbreaking Waterloo Archive series, Glover has again turned his attention to the British sources. Many treasures await readers: Lieutenant Ingilby’s journal provides a long overdue description of the role of Gardiner’s Troop of Royal Horse Artillery, Corporal Coulter vividly describes his own wounding during the battle; while Esward Heeley gives a fascinating glimpse into the life of a servant boy. Through these accounts the human aspect of war and military campaigning is brought to the fore: the humour and exhilaration, the fears and miseries, the starvation and exhaustion, the horror and the joy.
