BLACK Jeremy, Waterloo: The Battle That Brought down Napoleon


Description: The battle on Sunday 18 June, 1815 near Waterloo, Belgium, remains one of history's most argued-over battles. The british victory nevertheless became iconic, a triumph of endurance that ensured a 19th Century world in which Britain played a key role. It was also a defining moment for the French, bringing Napoleon I's reign to an end and closing the second Hundred Years' War.
This concise reinterpretation, by a leading military historian, gives readers a fascinating look at where this battle belongs in the larger story of the tectonic power shifts in Europe, and the story of military modernisation.
