In his first nonfiction book, acclaimed historical novelist Bernard Cornwall “employs his storytelling skills to bring military history out of the textbook” as he recounts pivotal battle of Waterloo. Tha stakes of the battle were high. Napolen has returned from exile and restablished himself in power in France. Napolean was detrmined to strike first before the allied monarchies could combine forces against him. Napoleon managed to drive a wedge between the British and Prussian armies at the battles of Quatre-Bras and Ligny, setting up a final, bloody confrontation with Wellington’s outnumbered British and Dutch command. This is detailed yet readable of account of the final conflict of a revolutionary era.
