A masterful study of command, control, communications, and even intelligence of all the major combatants during the Waterloo Campaign. Destined to become the gold standard for those studying how armies were controlled and decisions made during the Waterloo Campaign. --Robert Burnham, editor-in-chief, The Napoleon Series
I cannot over state how much I enjoyed this book. What other authors have brought into a spotlight Hussey has brought into the sunlight. Not only do we see an event illuminated we also see the context by which and in which it has relevance. If you want to understand Waterloo you have got to read this book. --Clash-of-Steel.co.uk
