9781862274150: A Desperate Business: Wellington, the British Army and the Waterloo Campaign

A "desperate business" was how the Duke of Wellington described the Battle of Waterloo following the Allied victory there on June 18, 1815. Ian Fletcher tells the story of the Waterloo Campaign and illustrates just how desperate the battle was, with Wellington's Anglo-Dutch army hanging on to the ridge at Mont St Jean until their Prussian allies arrived to put the seal on one of the most decisive victories in military history.
