318 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1854091751 B&w illustrations. "(T)he most comprehensive account ever published of the effect of this one man on the British Army during the Napoleonic era. This profusely illustrated study by Philip Haythornthwaite sets out to demonstrate Wellington's flexibility by showing the changes he employed in the various theatres in which he was active. As such, it is not another biography of this most celebrated soldier, but rather an assessment of how he altered the structure and equipment of his troops for each of his campaigns. Every aspect of his armies is explored - from the officers to the common soldiers; from the infantry to the cavalry; from military clergymen to the me dical services; as well as the attitude, morale and experiences of the troops. The author supplements his diligently researched analysis and detailed statistical coverage with contemporary accounts and quotations (many previously unpublished ) t o p r ovide a fresh look at one of the most colourful characters in European miltiary history..."

The songs are thus given their proper background, and the story connected with each heroine is fully and admirably told. This identification adds greatly to the interest of the songs....The poems are annotated where Scottish expressions need definition."

From the dust jacket of 'The Bombay Marines': "Newly returned from a successful assignment to rid the Arabian Se a of pirates, Captain Adam Horne of the frigate 'Eclipse' is summoned to the presence of his commading officer, Commodore Watson, head of the East India Company's private fighting unit, the much derided Bombay Marines. It is 1761, and Pond i c h e r r y , last stronghold of the French in the Indian subcontinent, has just fallen to the British. Now Captain Horne is given a strange and secret mission: to capture the defeated French commander Thomas Lally, from his prison at Fort St. G eo rg e in M ad ra s - or the unit will be disbanded for failure. Due to the deployment of most of the Marines on the east coast of India, Horne's force is seriously undermanned. He is left with only one choice: to take his pick of the motley co lle cti on of th iev es, r ap ists and murderers held in the prisons of Bombay Castle and subject them to intensive training for the most closely guarded campaign of the Seven Years' War. Drawing on a wealth of historical characters and events, and on l itt le-s tudi ed d ocum ent s o f the East India Company's early history, the action moves from sea to land, from the colourful waterfront of Bombay to the sadistic penal colony of Bull Island and the final, cataclysmic denouement within th e wa lls o f Fo rt St .
