Wellingtons Guns (General Military)


Wellington was a brilliant field commander but his leadership style was abrupt and uncompromising. He kept his artillery commanders at arm's length. In consequence, Wellington's relationship with his Gunners was dutiful at best, and occasionally failed completely. Wellington's somewhat disparaging comments resulted in the mistaken belief that the Gunners performed badly at Waterloo, supposedly abandoning their which was in direct contrast to French eyewitness accounts. Wellington's Guns is the long overdue story of the often stormy relationship between Wellington and his artillery, the frustrations, the characters and the achievements of the main protagonists as well as a detailed account of the British artillery of this period.
