    Not bad, though I was expecting more. It did give a bit of insight into the often-neglected battles of Ligny and Quatre Bras, which were overshadowed by Waterloo two days later. It did feel like the author was going out of his way to blame Wellington for the mishaps that happened, almost going as far as to take the Prussian view that they lost at Ligny because Wellington did not arrive. Nevermind that he had over 1/3 of Napoleon's army tied up at Quatre Bras. Anyway, not a bad read if you're loo Not bad, though I was expecting more.

Anyway, not a bad read if you're looking for some added insight, but I was expecting more detail and less of a playing of the blame game for the disaster at Ligny.

    Hofschroer is a different beast to the English writers on the Battle of Waterloo. He includes German, but also English and even a few Dutch sources. Since the book is mostly a revision of English dominated historiography of the campaign, Hofschroer is critical of Wellington's conduct of the campaign and his dealings with the Prussians. The constant focus on Wellington's double dealing gets tiresome, even if it's clear that the Hof is on to something.

There are very useful chapters on the diplomatic struggle over the minor German contingents between the allied armies and the Saxon mutiny. The research is very good, and I think for anyone not digging into the primary sources this book is more valuable than almost anything published by Anglo-Saxon authors.
