Our editor Zeughausverlag will publish the four volumes of plates done by Charles Lyall about the armies of the Waterloo campaign. Like Neumann or Knötel he draw and painted the plates with reference to mostly contemporary sources.

The plates will be accompanied by short remarks about the shown units and with introductory texts about Lyall, the Waterloo campaign (rather short) and the uniforms of the armies.

The German version will be published at the end of this year, the english translation will follow shortly afterwards … so there's no need to order the German version, unless you like to read our original text :-)

For more information about the release dates just follow this link

It's not the "English Army". England doesn't have an army now and didn't in the Napoleonic Wars. It's the British Army – as indeed the book cover shows in the link.

A common misunderstanding world-wide.

Just like thinking all Americans are from the United States.

Sorry for that … of course the British army and especially sorry for the Scots, Irish and Welsh troops serving in the British army and which I've neglected with the post title :-)

All the best

Excellent. I'm looking forward to getting these.

Oh how we must sympathise with you, Markus. In England, even here, it dominates (speaking as one with an Irish EU legitimate passport).

I recently had an article returned by the proof reader as I talked about The Royal Colleges of Surgeons. The poor lad was from a very long way away and asked me to drop the "s" in Colleges. I did then explain that there is an Edinburgh, Glasgow and even a Dublin College…not just the London one.

Let us not forget KGL…..

Napoleon always talked about the English facing him in 1815. We still think that Las Ramblas is in Spain……..funny old world

Didn't John Lennon call it the English Army?
"…the English Army had just won the war…"

Just curious.

@d88mm1940 I don't think (though it would be great if I were wrong) that John Lennon was a wargamer. Therefore his view doesn't count :)

He was in the movie,"How I Won the War (1967)".
That kind of counts…
