  • Cleanby Katherine Ashenburg

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 11.98

    'I return to Paris in five days. Stop washing.' So wrote Napoleon to Josephine in an age when body odour was considered an aphrodisiac. In stark contrast, the Romans used to bath for hours each day. Ashenburg's investigation of history's ambivalence towards personal hygiene takes her through plague-ridden streets, hospitals and battlefields. From... more...

  • 1813by Jonathon Riley

    Pen and Sword 2013; US$ 14.99

    1813 was a critical year in the world war that ended with the downfall of Napoleon. In a series of major battles, the converging armies of the Sixth Coalition drove the French forces back. This was the year in which the balance of power tipped decisively against Napoleon’s First Empire, and that is why Jonathon Riley’s highly readable and... more...

  • Waterlooby Gordon Corrigan

    Atlantic Books Ltd 2014; US$ 14.57

    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... more...

  • Dragon Rampantby Donald Graves

    Frontline Books 2010; US$ 12.99

    ‘I never saw any regiment in such order,’ said Wellington before the Battle of Waterloo, ‘it was the most complete and handsome military body I ever looked at.’ The object of the Duke's admiration was the 23rd Regiment of Foot - the famous Royal Welch Fusiliers - and this is their story during the tumultuous and bloody period... more...

  • The Constitutional Monarchy in France, 1814-48by Pamela M. Pilbeam

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 43.99

    Historians in France assume that the restoration of Monarchy after the defeat of Napoleon was doomed. The first compact recent history of the period in English, this book reveals that although the French experimented with two Monarchies and a Republic (1814 - 48), there was substantial stability. The Institutional framework constructed during the Revolutionary... more...

  • Three German Invasions of Franceby Douglas Fermer

    Pen and Sword 2013; US$ 17.25

    Tension and rivalry between France and Germany shaped the history of Western Europe in the century from 1860. Three times that hostility led to war and the invasion of France - in 1870, 1914 and 1940. The outcomes of the battles that followed reset the balance of power across the continent. Yet the German invasions tend to be viewed as separate events,... more...

  • Waterloo 1815by Gregory Fremont-Barnes

    The History Press 2014; US$ 36.46

    The Battle of Waterloo is one of the most important moments in military history. This book seeks to not only tell the story of this great battle, but also to challenge conventional thinking about the opposing forces and the British victory. At noon on 18 June 1815, the might of the Imperial French Army under Napoleon faced the Anglo-Allied Army, commanded... more...

  • The Lie at the Heart of Waterlooby Nigel Sale

    The History Press 2014; US$ 29.17

    All descriptions of the end of the Battle of Waterloo are incorrect, confused by the myth which Wellington promulgated, giving himself the credit for ordering the winning blow. At long last the truth has been teased out of the maze of evidence, revealing a tale, which - without the compelling evidence - would be nearly unbelievable. By analysing eyewitness... more...
