'Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. Artist: Unknown

'Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. The attack by the Royal Scots Greys cavalry regiment on the French 45th infantry was immortalised in this famous painting of 1881 by Lady Elizabeth Butler (1846-1933). The wife of a general as well as a popular Victorian painter, she persuaded the commander of the regiment to reconstruct the charge so she could make the painting. Some military historians doubt that the action actually took the form of the spectacular headlong charge depicted in the picture. What is known however is that the Scots Greys overpursued the French infantry, became split into disorganised small groups, and suffered heavy casualties at the hands of French cavalry formations before they were able to regain the British lines.

Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italian patriot, c1864 Artist: Unknown

Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italian patriot, c1864. Garibaldi (1807-1882) was involved in the 'Young Italy' movement and after a failed uprising in Piedmont in 1834 he fled first to France and from there to South America, where he learned techniques of guerrilla warfare. He returned to Italy in 1848 at the head of a band of 'Red Shirts', fighting against the Austrians and French in Italy's wars of independence, during which he became a popular hero. In 1860 Garibaldi invaded Sicily at the head of a force of 1000 men, which had increased to 30, 000 by the time he captured Naples. He then handed the territory he had captured in southern Italy over to Victor Emmanuel II, declaring him king of a united Italy. Cover of sheet music of c1864 when Garibaldi visited London.

'Battle between Alexander and Porus', 326 BC, (mid to late 17th century). Artist: Nicolaes Berchem

'Battle between Alexander and Porus', 326 BC, (mid to late 17th century). The forces of Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) combat those of the Indian rajah Porus (active 327-315 BC) on the banks of the River Hydaspes, (now the River Jhelum in Pakistan). Although Porus had the advantage of battle elephants, which the Greeks had never encountered before, Alexander still defeated Porus.
