Waterloo continues to attract far greater attention than any other action in the Napoleonic Wars, perhaps because of the sheer drama as Wellington makes a desperate last stand and Napoleon risks all on a single battle. Andrew Uffindell has gained considerable fame in Europe in recent years for two extensive works on the Waterloo Campaign. Uffindell now uses the familiar Battleground Europe style to examine the epic battle in terms of the actual terrain on which it was fought.
Much of the Waterloo battlefield survived the two World Wars and has been preserved as it was in 1815. Uffindell and Corum use maps, illustrations and photographs of points on the battlefield as they are today to describe all of the units, personalities and actions of this historic event and to provide a guide to the museums, monuments, and accommodations in the region.
