To create more interaction we will install a number of new features on this website to inform and better serve our public and interested readers:
To keep up to date:
Last Friday 14 June at the cavalry monument near the crossroads of Quatre Bras the annual official military commemoration was held in honour of the Dutch-Belgian fallen and wounded in the cavalry regiments in 1815. In his speech the chairman of the 'Stichting Cavaleriemonument Quatre Bras / Waterloo' their comrades in the infantry and artillery were not forgotten. It was an exceptional commemoration where representatives of current regiments of both the Dutch army and the Belgian army tracing back their proud history to the 1815 regiments attended and paid hommage to comrades of the past.

On Saturday 22 June we will visit the re-enactment of the Battle of Waterloo.
During the morning hours the author will promote his book and visit the Allied camp at the Hougoumont farm and in the afternoon make a similar visit to the French camp at Le Caillou, Napoleon's last field headquarters.
We will distribute many flyers around the camps, show the new book to everyone interested (no copies available on site), hopefully see many friends and enjoy the day!
We now offer all of the available maps published in both volumes 1 & 2 to our interested readers and public.
These full colour maps accompany the intriguing text and show the finest details on new research regarding the Waterloo campaign and its battles. One more reason to keep following the interesting series of books published by Sovereign House Books up to the bicentanery in 2015 on the Battle of Waterloo.
