At Waterloo, some 70,000 men under Napoleon and an equal number under Wellington faced one another in a titanic battle. Alessandro Barbero’s majestic account combines British and French histories to give voice to all nationions involved. The Battle is a masterpiece of military history.

‘This is not just the best book on Waterloo I’ve read, it’s also one of the most original and stimulating works of military history I’ve come across in years. ***** — Simon Shaw, Mail On Sunday
