Beschreibung

The best-selling author of The Battle, Alessandro Barbero, was asked which action saved Wellington at Waterloo prior to the arrival of the Prussians. He replied: ‘If I should indulge in that game, I’d say the cavalry charge which effectively broke d’Erlon's attack.’ In terms of regiments the greatest contributor to that charge, made by the British heavy cavalry, was the King’s Dragoon Guards (KDG), which fielded nearly half of the Household Brigade’s sabres. This book tells the remarkable story of the KDG before, during and after the battle of Waterloo, drawing on private, unpublished archive material. It concludes by describing the KDGs link to their descendant regiment, 1st Queen’s Dragoon Guards, of which HRH The Prince of Wales is Colonel-in-Chief.
