9781846779305: 1815, Waterloo: an Account of Napoleon's Last Campaign

A great conflict-a classic account

A battle as momentous as Waterloo could do nothing other than attract the repeated attention of historians of all nationalities for decades after the last smoke had cleared from above its bloody field. Whilst battles are many, rarely do they bring down empires and emperors casting epochs to the ground with them. Yet, within comparatively modern times such was the Battle Waterloo and the campaign of 1815. History, it is said, is always written by the victors and that is generally true. However, in Henry Houssaye, both the French nation and international academia is fortunate in possessing an historian of superb talent, thoroughness and ability to communicate his ideas coherently and entertainingly to his readers-both professional and amateur. Houssaye's enduring histories of the latter stages of the Napoleonic Age require little introduction to those interested in the period. They are acknowledged classics and this book is one of their number. Leonaur also publish Houssaye's renowned predecessor to this book, Napoleon and the Campaign of 1814 which documents the campaigns to the first abdication and restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. Both are available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.
