The Road to Waterloo - a concise history of the 1815 campaign - eBook
By Alasdair White

This is the story of the towering ambition of a man willing to impoverish his people in pursuit of personal glory. From the disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812 to his defeat on the battlefield of Waterloo three years later, Napoleon's fall has a certain inevitability about it. Writing in a clear, non-technical way, and making use of new research and insights from a variety of other academic disciplines, Alasdair White explores the events of 1815 and sets them in perspective, showing how close Napoleon came to an improbable victory despite his many failings.

Dating the Bois d'Hougoumont
By Alasdair White
The Bois d’Hougoumont seldom gets a mention in the history books. Many authors have assumed that the wood was cut down well before the battle, but Alasdair White’s recent research into the age of some of the trees in the wood show that they pre-date the Battle of Waterloo

Of Hedges, Myths and Memories
By Alasdair White
This is probably the most detailed historical appraisal of Hougoumont currently available. Making use of unpublished documentary records and detailed analysis of contemporary maps, White pieces together what the farm would have looked like and provides answers to the great historical question of how just 1,200 allied soldiers held off more than 6,000 French troops at the Battle of Waterloo.
