Featured battle : Kallham [or Riedau]

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 01 May 1809

Great bravery was shown on both sides in this determined Austrian rearguard action. The Baden and W├╝rttemburg hussars waited until the Austrian infantry had fired a volley then charged into the square. The Austrians fought on until their commander was cut down.

Waterloo Battlefield Guide

David Buttery
From the outset this book delivered more than I was expecting. Not only was there a description of the many places relevant to the Waterloo story placed, of course, in their modern setting to make them easy to find; but there was also a narrative of the battle with the troop dispositions and timings as accurate as you will find anywhere else. The maps and illustrations are numerous and good servants to the text. I read the book before my visit to Belgium and, having now used it extensively while there, my advice to the would be visitor is read it before you go and don't go without it. Highly recommended.
