Waterloo in 100 Objects, Hardback Book

Waterloo in 100 Objects Hardback

Hardback

Description

Explore the legacy of one of the greatest battles in military history - the Battle of Waterloo - through this finely crafted collection of objects, each telling their own story of the day.

Bullet-pierced armour and dramatic battledress bring you closer to the heart of the action, and the tragedy of the death toll is made ever more poignant by the personal mementoes left behind.

From the grim reality of the teeth of the dead turned into dentures to the romance of Napoleon's steeds, swash-buckling swords and ballgowns, each object offers new insight into the incredible events that unfolded on 18 June 1815.

This is a fascinating journey through 100 objects, from the rare to the memorable, in a unique testimony to the importance of the Battle of Waterloo, 200 years on.
