277 WATERLOO 1815 (2) Ligny
Second installment of the captivating study of the Waterloo campaign focuses on the desperate struggle for Ligny, which saw the Prussians pushed back by the French Army after heavy fighting in what was to be Napoleon's last battlefield victory. With Wellington unable to assist his Prussian allies in time, the Prussian center was overwhelmed as night began to fall, although the flanks were able to retreat in some semblance of order.
Stunning illustrations augment the drama of the fighting in this area while considerable new research drawn from unpublished first-hand accounts provide a detailed and engaging resource for all aspects of the battle.
