192 pp, 4to (11 1/8" H). Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour with maps/battle plans, uniform studies, reproductions. "(D)escribes in detail the composition and evolution of the British Army and its Allied foreign contingents, from the earliest campaigns of the French Revolutionary Wars until the final triumph at Waterloo. All aspects are covered, from the life of the ordinary redcoat to weaponry, tactics, administration, the supporting services at home and the numerous 'foreign corps'; and to the military genius of Wellington himself, all of which are supported by lavish illustrations. An account of all the campaigns undertaken from the first landing in the Netherlands in 1793 to Waterloo show how this army was employed, including not only the famous episodes of the Peninsular War but such little-regarded expeditions as those to South America in 1806, to Denmark, Egypt, the Cape and North America, and in India where Wellington gained his first victories. Full coverage is also accorded the Royal Navy and its invaluable services, not only in combat but in the less-glamorous but no less important duties of blockade and support for the military campaigns: in effect, a complete study of 'the most complete machine'." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one very small corner bump, place and date of purchase written on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing.
