Prelude to Waterloo Quatre Bras PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Prelude to Waterloo Quatre Bras free pdf The Battle of Quatre Bras was critical to the outcome of the Waterloo campaign - to the victory of the allied armies of Wellington and Blucher, the defeat of the French and the fall of Napoleon. But it has been overshadowed by the two larger-scale engagements at Ligny and at Waterloo itself. And too often the clash at Quatre Bras has been seen mainly through the eyes of the British and their allies - the viewpoint of the French has been neglected. It is this weakness in the history of the battle that Andrew Field focuses on in this original and highly readable new study. Drawing on French eyewitness recollections and later commentary, he reconstructs the French experience of the battle - and the French interpretation of it. He quotes extensively, and subjects to critical analysis, the conflicting accounts written by Napoleon and his subordinates as they sought justify their decisions and actions at this pivotal moment in the campaign.
