Overview

This is the story of two young Welsh cavalry officers who served for much of the Napoleonic Wars with the 15th (King's) Hussars. Major Edwin Griffiths and his nephew, Lieutenant Frederick Phillips, wrote home regularly, and they were not afraid to voice their true feelings about their situation or colleagues and superiors in their private correspondence. The book is a thoroughly researched and engaging history of the 15th Hussars throughout the wars, crammed full of interesting asides regarding the life and loves of a cavalryman in the Napoleonic age. As you read this book, you will learn to care passionately for these gregarious young men, partake in their exertions, share their joy, but also feel their pain when one of them fails to come safely through the final great battle, Waterloo.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Military History, May 2007
“To learn about the past, look to those who experienced it firsthand. In From Corunna to Waterloo, Gareth Glover pores over the musings of two Welsh cavalry officers during the Napoleonic Wars, tracking the human dimension of war.”

Napoleon Series (online), June 2007

“Gareth Glover does his normal superb job of bringing to life the numerous people, places, and events noted in passing in the text. His short sketches of most of the British officers that are mentioned by Griffiths or Philips help flesh out many of the people they interact with on a daily basis. Fortunately, these sketches are in the form of footnotes instead of endnotes, which is much easier for the reader to read them without losing his place in the text … This book is an excellent read and is a must-buy for those interested in the British Army or the Peninsular War.”
