4.0 out of 5 stars Filling a gap
The complement to the MAA Belgian Allies book, it gives a lot of detailed data about the actions and uniforms of the various dutch units present at Waterloo and offers new excellent drawings by Mr.Courcelle including the Prince William of Orange. I think it's a must for the Waterloo fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much use
This is not an especially helpful book. Infuriatingly, many uniforms plates replicate those available from other sources such as Haythornwaite. Unlike Haythornwaite it mentions the Orange-Nassau regiment very briefly and there is one illustration of a private, but no illustration or description of officers, drummers, NCO's, heaven forbid -the colour party.

This review is from: Wellington's Dutch Allies 1815 (Men-at-arms) (Paperback)
This is not an especially helpful book. Infuriatingly, many uniforms plates replicate those available from other sources such as Haythornwaite. Unlike Haythornwaite it mentions the Orange-Nassau regiment very briefly and there is one illustration of a private, but no illustration or description of officers, drummers, NCO's, heaven forbid -the colour party. There was a long and tedious introduction regarding the emergence of the Netherlands forces in 1813 and 1814 and absolutely no mention of the regimental colours either carried or not carried in 1815. I think the policy in this book is to completely avoid mentioning issues which he is not sure of instead of stating his doubt and describing any available evidence. This left me rather in the dark regarding certain important information regarding painting and wargaming. On the whole I think if you have Haythornwaite's Uniforms of Waterloo, this won't add anything that you can't glean free of charge from the internet. Disappointing.
