Description

On June 18, 1815, the armies of France, Britain and Prussia descended upon a quiet valley south of Brussels. The little village north of where the Allies turned to fight the French army was called Waterloo. The blood-soaked battle to which it gave its name would become a landmark in European history. In his first work of nonfiction, Bernard Cornwell combines his storytelling skills with a meticulously researched history to give a riveting chronicle of every dramatic moment, from Napoleon's daring escape from Elba to the smoke and gore of the three battlefields and their aftermath.

Professional reviews

"Above all, the narrator conveys the relentless carnage. Dugald Bruce Lockhart, a well-known Scottish actor, is very effective at narrating works such as this. Using changes in timing and intonation, he makes the listener feel the soldier's chaos--the deafening cannonade and musketry and screams and shouts and pain. The historical backstory is not the focus here; it's the battle, plain and simple and immensely complex. The author wrote about it before, especially in his fictional SHARPE'S WATERLOO, published in 1990, part of the bestselling Richard Sharpe series. Cornwell himself narrates the foreword and prologue.
