Overview
-

The three commanders-in-chief during the Waterloo campaign rank among the most famous soldiers in history.

Rarely have three such remarkable men as Napoleon, Wellington and Blücher confronted each other on a field of battle or had such an impact on the history of their time. Andrew Uffindell, in this readable and meticulously researched three-part biography, gives vivid accounts of their parallel lives and extraordinary careers.

The dramatic contrasts that emerge between their backgrounds, personalities and methods of command offer a fascinating insight into the secrets of leadership and into the warfare of the Napoleonic era.
