* QUALITY USED BOOKS FROM MILITARY HISTORY ARTIST, MARK CHURMS' OWN PRIVATE COLLECTION. DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Wellington's commanders were undoubtedly a breed apart. Among these heroes were cavalry officer Henry Paget, who kept the French horses from the heels of the retreating British infantry with a dashing charge at Benavente, and Thomas Picton, who concealed his injuries from his men while commanding to his last breath. This book examines the command and staff system of Wellington's army, and the background, character and war records of his commanding officers. Numerous illustrations, including eight full color plates, depict the officers' uniforms in vivid detail.
