Cavalry at Waterloo

A cavalryman's view of a famous action
This concise book offers an interesting perspective of the British mounted arm during the campaign which ended Napoleon's bid to reposition himself on the throne of France. The ranks of infantry glued to the muddy ridge at Waterloo sealed his fate, but the horse soldiers played no small part. This analysis has been written by a famous British soldier-Sir Evelyn Wood. Wood was a cavalryman himself and knew his subject well. He was a cornet in the 13th Light Dragoons later transferring to the 17th Lancers. He served during the Indian Mutiny winning the V. C. in 1858, aged 20, in a light cavalry action at Sinwaho. Wood went on to serve in the Ashanti War, the Zulu War, the Boer War and the Sudan before ending his career with the rank of Field-Marshal.
