The King's German Legion was the largest and most respected of the foreign
corps which fought as integrated elements of the British Army during the
Napoleonic Wars. The light and heavy cavalry, light and line infantry, and horse
and foot artillery of the KGL made major contributions to Wellington's victories
during the Peninsular War, and several units covered themselves with glory at
Waterloo. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the KGL from its origins
to its disbandment, including its uniforms, weapons, flags and standards.
