Wellington : the Iron Duke by Philip J Haythornthwaite( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After Napoleon returned from exile in 1815, Wellington was a principal leader of the coalition forces at Waterloo. In subsequent years, Wellington exerted a considerable influence on British politics, serving as prime minister and in later life as a trusted elder statesman. Upon his death, he was widely regarded as the greatest Briton of his generation and undisputedly one of the greatest British soldiers of all time."--Jacket
Gallipoli, 1915 : frontal assault on Turkey by Philip J Haythornthwaite( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gallipoli expedition of 1915, the brainchild of Winston Churchill, was designed to knock the Turkish Empire out of World War I and open a supply route to Russia. The campaign is characterized by the military incompetence of the higher commands, particularly the Allies. However, in spite of this, Gallipoli deserves to be, and is, also remembered for the heroism and resourcefulness of both the British and Turkish armies and the men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This book details the battles, hardships and eventual evacuation that these men had to endure, in this comprehensive guide to the Gallipoli landings."--Jacket

Frederick the Great's army by Philip J Haythornthwaite( Book )

39 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the wars undertaken by Frederick the Great, probably his greatest resource was his infantry. It is a mark of the king's determination that despite wars which almost destroyed both Prussia and its army (such as the Seven Years' War), he was able to maintain its numbers - even if the quality declined as the attritional campaigns took their toll. Philip Haythornthwaite examines the uniforms, tactics and organisation of Frederick's infantry in detail - a fighting force that contested battles such as Mollwitz, Hohenfriedberg, Kesselsdorf, Liegnitz, Burkersdorf and the siege of Prague

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accurate insight into the lives and living conditions of British soldiers 200 years ago is found by tracing of the career of a British soldier from enlistment, through the key stages of his path through the military system, including the confusion and terror of combat, all the way to his eventual discharge. This fascinating account shows how varied the recruits of the day were and how these soldiers, who the Duke of Wellington famously described as the "scum of the earth", were capable of extraordinary feats on the battlefield that eventually turned the course of the war against Napoleon

Napoleon's Imperial Guards probably represent the last true link in a chain spanning the ages.
