Wellington's army in the Peninsula, 1808-1814 by Michael Glover( Book )

12 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the eighteenth century there was no love lost between Britain and her army. Edmund Burke had laid down that 'an armed and disciplined body is, in its essence, dangerous to liberty.' Admitting, without enthusiasm, that they had to have some kind of army, it was provided with a system of control ostensibly designed to ensure that it could not menace civil liberty -- a complex system which led to Wellington's victory over the French because he was able to manage the administrative hydra in England. His self-set task was 'to do the best I can with the instruments that have been sent to assist me.' Michael Glover unravels the web of complexity over which the commander and his forces won a notable victory -- as well as the French. He describes the recruiting of officers and other ranks, the achievement of advance by purchase, all the services, and how these component parts worked in together. He demonstrates how this machine operated in action and rounds off his account with a portrait of Wellington himself

Battlefields of northern France and the Low Countries by Michael Glover( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the most dramatic battles in history, particularly during the two World Wars, took place in 'the cockpit of Europe'. They are fascinating to visit and close to routes which make them easily accessible to modern tourists. Michael Glover selects and comments on the battlefields. He explains just why and how the battles took place, choosing battlegrounds that to a large extent still exist and which still give the visitor a clear impression of their past. Detailed travel information makes the visit easy for today's traveller. Each battle is dealt with in three sections. First the background and influences which lead up to the action are described. This followed by a guide to the ground, showing precisely how the battle was fought and how the scene looks today. The third section contains penetrating accounts of nearby places, people, events, weapons, tactics or inspired works of art, which give the reader special insight into the reality and atmosphere of the battle"--Jacket
The fateful battle line : the Great War journals and sketches of Captain Henry Ogle by Henry Ogle( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry Ogle was a trained artist, and one who, in his writing, fused the vividness of the painter's eye for detail with a writer's precision and awareness. Commissioned from the ranks, twice wounded, his gallantry rewarded with the Military Cross, he endured four years of war; if the experience seared him, it never took from him his humanity. Front-line, support and reserve trenches; raids, patrols and work details; outposts and piquets; hospitals and base areas; French and Belgian towns and villages; leave back home in England; the tragic landscape of Flanders; weapons, artillery, transport, draft and riding animals; above all his fellow soldiers - Henry Ogle faithfully, and often wittily, recorded the day-to-day minutiae, as well as the sudden shattering moments, of vast industrial armies locked in the last of the great siege wars. In doing so, and in his accompanying text, he demonstrated that the enduring legacy of the Great War lay in the spirit of the men who fought it."--Back of book
