Cavalie Mercer

Gen. Cavalie Mercer (1783-1868), an officer in the Royal Horse Artillery, kept a diary of his personal impressions and experiences during the Waterloo campaign, never intending them to be published. It was not until after his death, in 1870, that this occurred, and the book has since come to be regarded as a classic. This edition was originally published in 1927, and is complete with an introduction by the Hon. Sir John Fortescue and a new foreword by Gen. Sir Alex Harley.
