Wellington : the Iron Duke by Philip J Haythornthwaite( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,402 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 )

23 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 414 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

Picton's Division at Waterloo by Philip J Haythornthwaite( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the two hundred years since the Battle of Waterloo countless studies examining almost every aspect of this momentous event have been published - narratives of the campaign, graphic accounts of key stages in the fighting or of the role played by a regiment or by an individual who was there - an eyewitness. But what has not been written is an in-depth study of a division, one of the larger formations that made up the armies on that decisive battlefield, and that is exactly the purpose of Philip Haythornthwaite's original and highly readable new book. He concentrates on the famous Fifth Division, commanded by Sir Thomas Picton, which was a key element in Wellington's Reserve. The experiences of this division form a microcosm of those of the entire army. Vividly, using a range of firsthand accounts, the author describes the actions of the officers and men throughout this short, intense campaign, in particular their involvement the fighting at Quatre Bras and at Waterloo itself." --Publisher description

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

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
