    In 1815, the deposed emperor Napoleon returned to France and threatened the already devastated and exhausted continent with yet another war.

    Following France?s defeat in the Franco-Prussian War in 1870?71, French patriots feared that their country was in danger of becoming a second-rate power in Europe.

    The History Press 2014; US$ 36.46

    The Battle of Waterloo is one of the most important moments in military history.

  • 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...
