Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wellington and Napoleon tells the story of the convergence and final clash of two of the most brilliant commanders ever to meet on the field of battle, Wellington, his men said, "didn't know how to lose a battle." But Wellington himself admired his adversary. In Portugal and Spain, Wellington helped wreck Napoleon's Continental System, bled his reserves away and showed the 'unbeatable' French could be beaten after all. It was the British infantryman who made the difference. Napoleon never learned to coanter Wellington's infantry, and at the great climax ot Waterloo it cost him dear. Even so, the battle was so near-run that, but for luck and the Prussians, history might have taken an altogether different course.

Synopsis:

A riveting description of the confrontation between two of the world's greatest military commanders written by a consummate military historian.
