Σελίδα 596 - Bulow, upon the enemy's flank, was a most decisive one; and even if I had not found myself in a situation to make the attack, which produced the final result, it would have forced the enemy to retire, if his attacks should have failed, and would have prevented him from taking advantage of them, if they should unfortunately have succeeded.
Σελίδα 813 - Marshal had promised me that, in case we should be attacked, he would support me with one or more corps, as might be necessary. The enemy collected his army, with the exception of the third corps, which had been sent to observe Marshal Blucher, on a range of heights in our front, in the course of the night of the 17th and yesterday morning; and at about ten o'clock he commenced a furious attack upon our post at Hougomont.
Σελίδα 93 - Let us, then, march to meet them. Are they and we no longer the same men ? "Soldiers! at Jena, against these same Prussians, now so arrogant, you were one...
Σελίδα 813 - Hougoumont, which covered the return of that flank : and in front of the left centre, we occupied the farm of La Haye Sainte. By our left we communicated with Marshal Prince Blucher, at Wavre through Ohaim; and the Marshal had promised me, that...

Σελίδα 813 - Neither did he attempt to molest our march to the rear, although made in the middle of the day, excepting by following, with a large body of cavalry, brought from his right, the cavalry under the Earl of Uxbridge.
Σελίδα 813 - I am happy to add, that it was maintained throughout the day with the utmost gallantry by these brave troops, notwithstanding the repeated efforts of large bodies of the enemy to obtain possession of it.
Σελίδα 618 - As the army is about to enter the French territory, the troops of the nations which are at present under the command of Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington are desired to recollect that their respective Sovereigns are the allies of His Majesty the King of France, and that France ought therefore to be treated as a friendly country.
Σελίδα 811 - Sombref, holding the villages in front of his position of St. Amand and Ligny. The enemy continued his march along the road from...
