About this product
- DescriptionPublished to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, this lavishly illustrated volume looks at all the different aspects of the 100-day campaign which has become synymous with the Napoleonic Wars and saw the eventual defeat of Napoleon's French forces. Ten articles by internationally rewned historians examine the battle from different angles, from the microcosm of the bitter fighting for the fortified farmhouse of Hougoumont through to a wider perspective of the 100-day campaign in its entirety. The official publication of the Waterloo 200 organization, slipcased and highly collectible, Waterloo - The Decisive Victory offers a unique and authoritative history of one of the most important battles in world history.
