My Osprey Campaign book will be released on 29 October. I already have a number of copies available from my website:

Brilliant. I've just ordered my copy. This book was a long time coming.

I wrote it last year so glad that it is finally out in print.

A definite must have.

The advert states it has full OOBs. As far as I know these dot not exist for the actual day of the battle, but only at a point prior to the battle. Have you discovered a new source for actual battle?

I have done a lot of cross-referencing between the pre-battle OOBs, national archives, regimental histories and first hand accounts to build a pretty comprehensive day of battle OOB. There are still a few unknowns, especially for the cavalry, and there are places where I have had to make a couple of educated guesses but I do point out what is certain, what is likely and what is still unknown.
