WATERLOO A New History of the Battle and its Armies

£12.99 £3.99

Fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, by some 220,000 men over rain-sodden ground in what is now Belgium, the Battle of Waterloo brought an end to twenty-three years of almost continual war between revolutionary and later imperial France and her enemies. A decisive defeat for Napoleon and a hard-won victory for the Allied armies of the Duke of Wellington and the Prussians led by the stalwart Blücher, it brought about the French emperor’s final exile to St Helena and cleared the way for Britain to become the dominant world power.
