Waterloo battlefield guide by David Buttery( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The defeat of Napoleon’s French army by the combined forces of Wellington and Blücher at Waterloo on 18 June 1815 was a turning point in world history. This was the climax of the Napoleonic Wars, and the outcome had a major influence on the shape of Europe for the next century and beyond. The battle was a milestone, and it cannot be properly understood without a detailed, on-the-ground study of the landscape in which it was fought – and that is the purpose of David Buttery’s battlefield guide. This thoroughgoing, lucid, easy-to-follow guide is a fascinating introduction for anyone who seeks to understand what happened on that momentous day, and it will be an essential companion for visitors to the battlefield in Belgium
Messenger of death : Captain Nolan and the charge of the Light Brigade by David Buttery( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Captain Louis Nolan delivered the order that started one of the most famous blunders in all military history -- the charge of the Light Brigade. Nolan's conduct and the charge itself have been the subject of intense, sometimes bitter debate ever since ... Yet there has been no recent biography of Nolan. He remains an ambiguous, controversial figure to this day. In this ... study, David Buttery reassesses Nolan the man and looks at his entire career. There was much more to Louis Nolan than his fatal role in the charge ... It offers the reader an inside view of the most notorious episode of that war, the charge at Balaklava on 25 October 1854"--Jacket
Wellington against Soult : the second invasion of Portugal, 1809 by David Buttery( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the heart of David Buttery’s third book on the Peninsular War lies the comparison between two great commanders of enormous experience and reputation – Arthur Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, and Jean de Dieu Soult. In Soult, Wellesley met one of his most formidable opponents and they confronted each other during one of the most remarkable, and neglected, of the Peninsular campaigns. Soult’s invasion of Portugal is rarely studied in great depth and, likewise, the offensive Wellesley launched, which defeated and expelled the French, has also received scant coverage. As well as giving a fresh insight into the contrasting characters of the two generals, the narrative offers a gripping and detailed, reconstruction of the organization and experience of a military campaign 200 years ago."--Publisher information
Wellington against Junot : the first invasion of Portugal, 1807-1808 by David Buttery( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and Portuguese and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The account ... examines the wider implications of the invasion and liberation of Portugal -- its impact on Napoleonic strategy and on the protracted struggle against the French across the Iberian Peninsula, and its contribution to the eventual defeat of Napoleon"--Jacket
Wellington against Massena : the third invasion of Portugal, 1810-1811 by David Buttery( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wellington's clash with Massena was one of the most remarkable contests between two commanders in the Peninsular War. These two formidable generals carried on a campaign of manoeuvre, battle, and attrition across Spain and Portugal in 1810 and 1811 which had a decisive impact on the outcome of the war. Wellington's reputation was enhanced, and Massena's was ruined ... [The author's] close analysis of this extraordinary encounter offers a penetrating insight into the personalities of these two outstanding soldiers ... He reassess the famous confrontations at Ciudad Rodrigo, Almeida, Busaco, the lines of Torres Vedras, and the final bitterly fought battle at Fuentes de O?oro"--Jacket
