Waterloo by Christopher Hibbert.
Waterloo was the battle that ended for ever Napoleons dreams of a European empire unified under his rule. Through judicious and skilful use of original source material, Chistopher Hibbert creates full-dimensional portraits of Napoleon and Wellington, of the French, English and Prussian armies, and a strategical, step-by-step reconstruction of the events that led up to the battle, and the battle itself. Divided into three parts, the first studies Napoleon and his rise to power, the second describes Wellington and the allied armies, while the third reconstructs the battle of Waterloo. A final summary investigates the significance of the battle on world history.

Waterloo by Christopher Hibbert. - Editions Available
The Peninsula War was a war of contrasts; a war fought in the icy passes of the high Pyrenees and on the burning wastes of the Sierra Morena; a war of infinite cruelty yet remarkable courtesy; a war in which debonair British officers fought alongside ragged Spanish partisans. It began in 1808 with Napoleon at the height of his power, and ended with his attempted suicide in 1814 - he called it his Spanish ulcer. In a series of savagely fought battles - Cuidad, Rodrigo, Badajoz, Salamanca and Vittoria - Wellingtons scum (the French opinion of his army) avenged Corunna and swept Spain clean of Frances finest troops. Roger Parkinsons narrative vividly recaptures the horror, excitement and drudgery of historys first guerilla war. The books many superb illustrations ably complement the stirring text.
