William Hay (1794-1855) served in the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars, rising to the rank of captain before returning to civilian life. In later years he served as Inspecting Superintendent and then as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. Andrew Bamford is a historian and author who has written extensively on the British Army in the Napoleonic Wars and has made a close study of the regimental system in general and of the 12th Light Dragoons in particular.
Highly recommended for collectors of memoirs of the Peninsular War or Waterloo. I would far rather have this edition than a copy of the original! -- Arthur Harman Miniature Wargames - Arthur Harman
