A Waste of Blood and Treasure

The 1799 Anglo-Russian Invasion of the Netherlands

Philip Ball

In 1799 Britain and Russia joined forces – their first such joint venture – to send a 48,000 strong army to liberate the Netherlands from French occupation. This first study for a generation of an important but neglected campaign explains the diplomatic manoeuvring that preceded it, and the political fallout from its failure. Drawing on eyewitness reports from soldiers, sailors and politicians, and supported by six maps, it also offers descriptions of the major battles.
