Waterloo: The Hundred Days

Waterloo: The Hundred Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Battle of Waterloo is one of the most decisive encounters in history. Wellington's victory marked the end of the career of one of the greatest leaders of all time, Napoleon Bonaparte: it also signalled a crucial change in the balance of power in Europe that was to have critical consequences for the rest of the world. Yet the story of Napoleon's return from Elba and his dramatic seizure of power - even if for a mere 'hundred days' - is more than just the dry bones of history; it is a great adventure story. The author provides a blow-by-blow account of the battle itself and examines key aspects such as the organisation of both the French and the Allied armies, their tactics, strategy and weaponry, and their commanders' personalities.

Synopsis:

The Battle of Waterloo marked the end of the career of one of the most charismatic men of all time and signaled a crucial shift in the European balance of power. But the story of Napoleon's return from Elba and his dramatic seizure of power — even if for a mere hundred days — is a great adventure story. Chandler's book, based on more than 20 years of research, gives a blow-by-blow account of the battle, but also goes behind the scenes to analyze the military organization, the commanders, their tactics, strategies, and weapons.
