About this Product

The Guards fought in every major British campaign on the continent during the Napoleonic Wars. They carved their place in history under commanders such as Sir John Moore and Wellington from Corunna and Talavera during the Peninsula War to their legendary defence of the Chateau of Hougoumont throughout the battle of Waterloo. Ian Fletcher examines the uniforms and insignia of the Guards as worn both on campaign and on ceremonial duties in this worthy addition to the Elite series, which features a wealth of accompanying illustrations including 12 full page colour plates by Bill Younghusband.

Biographical Note

Ken Bradley was born in 1944. He has a long standing interest in many aspects of militaria but his particular passion is reserved for the English and Spanish Civil Wars. A member of the Sealed Knot, he rose to the dizzy heights of becoming Colonel of the Earl of Stamford's Regiment of Foot (Parliamentary)! He has also researched in depth the International Brigades invoved in the Spanish Civil War, and has visited almost every one of the battlesites. Mike Chappell comes from an Aldershot family with British Army connections stretching back several generations. He enlisted as a teenage private in the Royal Hampshire Regiment in 1952 and retired in 1974, as RSM of the 1st Battalion The Wessex Regiment (Rifle Volunteers), after seeing service in Malaya, Cyprus, Swaziland, Libya, Germany, Ulster and home garrisons. He began painting military subjects in 1968 and since then has gained worldwide popularity as a military illustrator. Mike has also written and illustrated many quality books in the Osprey Military list.
