1 Siborne, Maj.-General H.T. (ed). WATERLOO LETTERS: A SELECTION OF ORIGINAL AND HITHERTO UNPUBLISHED LETTERS.
London AAP 1983 Facsimile of 1891 ed 
415pp, many folding maps. Fine in Fine DJ. The editor's father, William Siborne, was a veteran and student of the battle. He wished to construct an elaborate model showing 'the crisis of the battle', and circulated a sophisticated questionnaire to all the officers who took part in the action. The result is this book, the single most valuable source of information we have on Waterloo (the criticisms recently leveled by 'Sir' D. Hamilton-Williams are bullshit!!). This work is also a milestone in the methodology of military history; it is, in fact, the origin of 'after-action reports' now used by virtually all armies.
