... a damn nice thing .., the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life ...'
A Peninsular and Waterloo Anthology was published at the end of 2015. All members received a copy as part of their subscription for that year, but anyone interested in the Napoleonic Wars may wish to acquire a copy. It was very well received by members as the following comments indicate:
"' ... a damn nice thing ...' is. Well done to the Society."
"Warmest congratulations to you and the contributors on the Waterloo Special ... You have done a marvellous job."
"What a super surprise, the Christmas present just arrived from SAHR! ... You have worked extremely hard to edit this excellent commemoration of Waterloo and I am sure that every member will enjoy it."
"... congratulations on producing a magnificent publication, beautifully presented and illustrated ..."
The soft-back, A4 sized book is illustrated extensively in colour across its 175 pages and includes:
the hitherto unpublished letters of the Luard brothers who fought in the 4th Dragoons in Spain and Portugal.
A study of the Daniel Maclise painting 'The Meeting of Wellington and Blucher after the Battle of Waterloo'.
Eight illustrated essays on Waterloo artefacts from the National Army Museum collection.
An examination of the invention and operation of the Shrapnel shell in Spain and the Netherlands, 1808-1815.
Two new accounts of the Battle of Waterloo.
Schematic artwork by Bryan Fosten of all of the British regiments at Waterloo.
