To mark the bi-centenary of the Battle of Waterloo this issue is full of great articles covering the Irish in red, the Dublin born Duke of Wellington, and living historians who took to the field retracing the steps of the 27th (Inniskilling) Regiment of Foot.

It is a harrowing story worthy of the big screen.
