Overview
-

Jac Weller studies every move and countermove of the battle, recreating not only the actions and tactics of the two great leaders but the epic engagements and clashes between the troops themselves that were pivotal for the victory or defeat. The author also studies the related battles of Quatre Bras and Ligny. He takes the reader with him onto the battlefield of Waterloo, a terrain whose features are still recognizable today, and which is bought to life for the reader by detailed maps and by the author's vivid and riveting descriptions of the progress of the fighting.

This ‘completely original approach,’ appreciated by the Times Literary Supplement on the books first publication, strikes as fresh today, and this new edition, with an introduction specially written for it by the author, will be eagerly read by military enthusiasts and general reader alike.
