Waterloo: The History of Four Days, Three Armies, and Three Battles
In his very first nonfiction book, published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, historical novelist Bernard Cornwell (The Empty Throne, 2015) employs his masterful storytelling skills to bring military history to life. The battle, which took place in Belgium on June 18, 1815, marked the final defeat of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte by the Prussian and Allied armies, led by the Duke of Wellington. Cornwell’s fascinating, detailed, and generously illustrated account easily navigates the bloody battlefields that changed the fate of 19th-century Europe. (Kirkus Reviews)
