Bruce E. Burgoyne talked about the Waldeckers in the following terms in the introduction of his book:
« ...the Waldeckers were not just fighting men, they were human beings with all the characteristis that the term implies. Most military historians describe battles and leaders, both military and civilian, but the «Mini-Bios» which follow describe the Waldeck soldiers who were called upon to serve and if needed be, to die. »
