Designed for those with an interest in the Napoleonic Wars, from 1804 to 1815, this is a guide to all the uniforms worn in the Duke of Wellington's victorious army, from the hard campaigning of the Peninsular War to the final great victory over Napoleon at Waterloo. Each regiment and unit in Wellington's army is described, and its uniforms and equipment detailed. Beyond the regulations laid down for what a soldier should wear, the author describes the reality of life on campaign, the wear and tear on uniforms and the way they were adapted. How comfortable was it to wear a cocked hat in the rain with water running off it like a fountain? Drawing on first-hand accounts, the book creates a true picture of what Wellington's redcoats really looked like.
