99p eBook download: Waterloo: The Campaign of 1815, Volume I – From Elba to Ligny and Quatre Bras by John Hussey.

‘No-one knows more about the Waterloo campaign than John Hussey, and this extraordinary book is the culmination of his life’s work in Napoleonic War studies.’ ~ Andrew Roberts

The first of two ground-breaking, prize-winning volumes on the Waterloo campaign, this book is based upon a detailed analysis of sources old and new in four languages. It highlights the political stresses between the Allies and their resolution, examining the problems of feeding and paying for 250,000 Allied forces assembling in Belgium during the ‘undeclared war’, and how a strategy was thrashed out.

Hussey investigates the neglected topic of how the slow and discordant Allies beyond the Rhine hampered the plans of Blücher and Wellington, thus allowing Napoleon to snatch the initiative from them. Napoleon’s operational plan is analysed (and Soult’s mistakes in executing it) and accounts from both sides help provide a vivid impression of the fighting on the first day, 15 June. The volume ends with the joint battles of Ligny and Quatre Bras the next day.

Also available: Waterloo – The Campaign of 1815 – Volume II: From Waterloo to the Restoration of Peace in Europe.

In memory: Jon Cooksey
It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Jon Cooksey earlier this week. Jon was one of our leading supporters and a founding author of Pen and Sword. He authored more than 15 titles through a collaboration that lasted over 30 years, starting with the first book ever published by P&S, Barnsley Pals.

Jon had a great eye for an opportunity and was one of the most diligent and passionate historians that we have ever worked with. His attention to detail stood him above many others, whether this be researching his latest book, editing Stand To! or taking people around the battlefields. He made every experience memorable and engaging, not only for seasoned historians but also for school children experiencing the subject for the first time.

He will be sadly missed by all. RIP Jon.

Colonel John Waddy turns 100

Our Price
£12.99
Colonel John Waddy, author of A Tour Of The Arnhem Battlefields, celebrated his 100th birthday on Wednesday, 17 June.

John commanded the Parachute Regiment’s 156th Battalion’s ‘B’ Company during the iconic Battle of Arnhem in September 1944. He was seriously wounded during the battle and spent the remainder of the war in a PoW camp. He was later called upon by the producers of the 1977 film, A Bridge Too Far, and served as their military adviser.

As a battle guide, A Tour Of The Arnhem Battlefields leaves nothing out, illustrated with maps and photographs, the author takes the reader through the battle with extensive use of first hand accounts.

‘There have been several very fine battlefield guides written about Arnhem but this one deserves particular attention as its author participated in it as a company commander in the 156th Parachute Battalion. It comes with a superb 1:25,000 scale military map of the battlefield, complete with historical grid references which may be used in conjunction with unit war diaries and official reports.’ ~Pegasus Archive
