Synopsis of Waterloo Lectures (Napoleonic Library No. 32):

Reprinted from the rare fourth edition, Colonel Chesney’s “Waterloo Lectures” is an enduring classic on the great battle of 1815. Chesney consulted English, German, Belgian, and French sources on the battle, and brought a logical and objective mind to his research. As further evidence was uncovered, he incorporated it into later editions of the book. The edition now being made available again is the last, best, and most complete.

This classic work covers the period from pre-preparations for the battle right up to its aftermath. Cheesy analysed all the available facts in an impartial and accurate way, using scrupulous standards of evidence and clear, precise arguments. These lectures are rated as an outstanding contribution to the literature on Waterloo.
