Perhaps even worse, the Saxon regiments had only recently mutinied. These points explain the doubts of the British.
However, our writer—understandably but possibly wrongly —strongly supports the Prussian points of view. Personally, I do not believe these charges. Most of his book is well judged, and for new material discovered or re-discovered about the saga, we must be grateful. Nevertheless, he sometimes rather overpaints in his Germanic arguments.
Personally, I trust him to be balanced as a historian—verified hopefully in his next volume. Whether or not a higher academic understanding has been attained, no final judgment can yet be made. We must await the growth of an informed and critical consensus. However, it is certainly not overly rash to suggest that his book may be accepted for several years as a standard work on its subject.
The author has a good case. Let us hope he does not spoil it in his future efforts.
We need some fresh air. As for the Great Duke, he admitted his mistakes, praised his allies—but then he refused to write any more on the subject. He was correct, of course; if only more modern generals would be as sensible as Wellington. David Chandler. Published in Virtually no wear to covers.
