Any good? (I like a good read – good story telling)

Prelude to Waterloo by the same author was good. In addition to the usual narrative of events, he spent a fair amount of time analyzing the decision-making of the senior commanders and attempted to determine, based on prior instructions, current situation on-site, etc., whether their decisions were reasonable exercises of judgment. Bottom line: no one did well at Quatre Bras. Wellington just made fewer mistakes then the French, and the Duke of Orange – despite being routinely criticized by English authors – saved Welly's bacon.

Just got it today. Will post when I finish it. If it is anything like his two previous books on the subject, it will be an excellent addition.
