First was Osprey Elite #52: Wellington’s Foot Guards, troops that were involved in key battles of the Napoleonic Wars, including a very major part in Waterloo.

Second was Osprey Elite #48: Nelson’s Navy, without which Britain could not have defeated Napoleon.

Third was Osprey Elite #108: Spanish Guerrillas in the Peninsular War 1808 – 14; their work during the period gave Wellington the situation that he could turn to advantage to defeat French forces, and invade France itself.
