The Chainy 10th. British Hussars, 1815.

Watermarked PDF

The 10th Hussars led the final British cavalry charge at Waterloo chasing Napoleon's Old Guard as it fell back. Fearing that the French army may regroup and counter-attack, their order was to smash all before them. Storming down the slopes, they cut and slashed their way through the disordered mass of infantry and cavalry. They eventually fell on a last square of Imperial Guard, defiantly holding their formation and trying to rally the panicking forces around them. The Old Guard fired several terrible vollies, but the day had already been won, and with the support of infantry and artillery, the last stand of Napoleon's Guard was made to surrender. The 10th Hussars rode on to Paris with Wellington after the battle.

Due to their c-in-c's (the Prince of wales) friendship with Ezekiel Baker, producer of the reknown Baker Rifle, a proportion of the 10th Hussars were equipped with 'Baker Rifled Carbines'.  10th Hussars firing Baker carbines at distance gave a nastie surprise to French troops advancing across a bridge in the withdrawl from Quatre Bras, when deciding to cross the bridge the French had assumed the Hussars were firing regular inaccurate cavalry carbines after a few well aimed shots they thought they would perhaps wait until the hussars retired.

The figures have black surrounds and there is a detailed 'earth' sheet for figure bases.  The pdf sheets include the mirror reflections and fold lines to enable easy construction.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
