Item description for Waterloo: Relics by Gilles Bernard...

Waterloo, the plain where Napoleon's Empire was dealt its final blow after a titanic fight, is not only a name on the map. La Haye-Sainte, Hougoumont and Plancenoit are real places where men struggled, suffered and died.
In this book, the authors retrace the phases of the famous battle. But moreover, they lead the reader deep into history by showing the artifacts, weapons, uniforms and pieces of equipment that have survived after more than two centuries.
From Napoleon's hat to Wellington's pad, from a simple uniform button to a rusted bayonet found on the very ground of the battlefield, these fabulous relics help us revisit the day of June 18th 1815. Packed with dozens of color images of uniforms and equipment.

Reviews - What do customers think about Waterloo: Relics?

The title says it all, "Waterloo Relics"! I doubt if any battle campaign prior to WWII has been covered more than Waterloo, but seldom is there an illustration given to the equipment used, and the relics found from the Waterloo Campaign.

As a casual collector of such, I found this an essential addition to my library. The author pulls together illustrations, equipment, relics, and pictures of the battlefield into one pioneering effort with this splendid work.

The illustrations are virtually all in brilliant color, nicely sized, and of superb quality. The captions are well done, as are the introductions to each chapter with overviews of the specific aspects of the campaign.

The laminated hard cover is much appreciated, as I'm personally tired of damaging my dustcovers, or the effort to keep them in good shape.

The definitive work on the subject? No, but it is a darn good read, fun to pick up and take off wherever the page lands, and a feast for the eyes. I hope the authors will add more volumes to this work.
Any with even a passing interest in Waterloo must not miss this!  May 22, 2006
Waterloo may be recalled as a military defeat rather than just a battle, but years after the war, relics remain to prove otherwise; so it's surprising that no other survey has seen fit to examine and focus on these remainders more closely - not until WATERLOO RELICS, that is. From uniform buttons to broken metal and cartridge cases, history is re-created using a blend of artistic vivid color paintings, pieces of archaeological evidence, and brilliant quotes from descriptions of Waterloo battle history. Any with even a passing interest in Waterloo must not miss this!
