    Book details


This second volume deals with the final preparations for war, including the arrival of the Duke of Wellington. The operations, particularly of the Second Division during the whirlwind campaign of Waterloo and the consequent march to Paris are described in great detail as are the details of the Army of Occupation which lasted until 1818, concluding with their embarkation. As well as his correspondence, Henry Clinton also kept a personal diary that was completed each evening. All of this various material has been put into date order and each day's diary entry precedes the correspondence for the day (inserted by date of writing rather than of receipt) and the letters have been put in sequential order wherever it is possible or a time of day is indicated. The appendix gives extracts recorded by an officer in Adam's Brigade of his Brigade orders that dovetail with the correspondence between Sir Henry Clinton and his brigade.

Review Text

  • By Robin de Wilde on 5 December 2016

    This is yet another example of recently discovered documents which have a lot of detail to tell us precisely what happened before and at and after the Battle of Waterloo. this one of two volumes covering this period. Both are well annotated. Clinton acted as Wellington's Deputy whilst he (Wellington) was in Vienna, than at the Battle itself commanded a Division on the Allied right flank. The actual circumstances of the Battle are in Volume 2. It continues thorough the Occupation until Clinton had to go back to England as a result of ill health. Clinton was part of the 'Inner Circle' and he survived which is what makes these two volumes so interesting. It is also a tribute to Gareth Glover who has been responsible for so much which is newly discovered some 200 years after the events that took place at Waterloo. There are always new features to appreciate about the actual events at Waterloo!

    This is an excellent collection of Clinton's Diaries (the early Part). I need to order the second volume.
