WATERLOO: MYTH AND REALITY
256pp., 40 colour & b/w illus. 2014.
Purchasers of our own publications will know the depth of study that Gareth has applied to memoirs and accounts of Waterloo. He has uncovered hundreds of previously unpublished eyewitness accounts and in doing so has been in the best position to know the myths and distortions that have followed other histories down the centuries. Here at last is Gareth’s own study of the campaign, readable and balanced, this is the one Waterloo book you will HAVE to read and certain to be one of the major contributions to the study of the Napoleonic Era.
