Short Story in the Waterloo Collection
The Collection was launched last weekend in Devon by Professor Richard Holmes, an expert on Waterloo, and he has written the foreword and signed the book. Evidently, the standard of competition entries was so high that they decided to publish some of the stories. The Collection is to raise funds for Project Huogoumont, in the hope of restoring the dilapidated farm on the site of the Battlefield in Belgium, in time for the 200th anniversary of Waterloo in 2015.
It's a stunning cover, isn't it? Copyright of the cover art remains with artist Chris Collingwood, having been granted permission for it by 'Project Hougoumont' .
