Waterloo Battlefield Guide : Second Edition, Paperback Book

Waterloo Battlefield Guide : Second Edition Paperback

Description

The defeat of Napoleon's French army by the combined forces of Wellington and Blucher at Waterloo on 18 June 1815 was a turning point in world history.

This was the climax of the Napoleonic Wars, and the outcome had a major influence on the shape of Europe for the next century and beyond.

The battle was a milestone, and it cannot be properly understood without a detailed, on-the-ground study of the landscape in which it was fought-and that is the purpose of David Buttery's battlefield guide.

This thoroughgoing, lucid, easy-to-follow guide is a fascinating introduction for anyone who seeks to understand what happened on that momentous day, and it will be an essential companion for visitors to the battlefield in Belgium.
