Wellington: The Iron Duke
Publisher: HarperCollins (UK)Format: Paperback
Richard Holmes, military historian and broadcaster, tells the story of one of Britain's greatest-ever soldiers, the man who posed the most serious threat to Napoleon. The author charts Wellington's military career from India to Europe, and in the process, rediscovers the reasons Queen Victoria called him the greatest man the 19th century had produced. Combining historical analysis with a semi-biographical examination of Wellington, Holmes illustrates the rapid evolution in military and political thinking of the time. Wellington is shown as a brilliant figure, idealistic in politics, cynical in love, a wit, a beau, a man of enormous courage often sickened by war. As Richard Holmes charts his progress from a shy, indolent boy to commander-in-chief of the allied forces, he also exposes the Iron Duke as a philanderer, and a man who sometimes despised the men that he led, and was not always in control of his soldiers.
