Known affectionately as "Old Nosey," Wellington earned the highest reputation as a British military commander. He achieved victories despite impossible obstacles and had the undying loyalty of his men. In Wellington as Military Commander Michael Glover traces Wellington's triumphant career, from his early days in India through the Peninsular campaigns and his glorious defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo. Glover's vivid narrative, with its unrivaled descriptions of the strategies, weapons, and formations of George III's army, draws upon personal accounts of both the men who served under Wellington and the great commander himself.
