Overview

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 new account stands apart from previous British and French histories by giving voice to all the nationalities involved. The Battle is a masterpiece of military history and the definitive account of a battle that, in the words of John Keegan, 'reversed the tide of European history'.
