Book review

"Next to a battle lost, the greatest misery is a battle gained." - Wellington

The Duke of Wellington, the most successful of British commanders, set a standard by which all subsequent British generals have been measured.

His defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815 crowned a reputation first won in India at Assaye and then confirmed during the Peninsular War, where he followed up his defense of Portugal by driving the French from Spain.

Gordon Corrigan, himself an ex-soldier, examines Wellington’s claims to greatness.

Wellington was in many ways the first modern general, combining a mastery of logistics with an ability to communicate with and inspire men of all ranks.

He had to contend not only with enemy armies but also with his political masters and an often skeptical public at home.

'Wellington: A Military Life' is a brilliant examination of one of Britain's most important historical figures.

‘Political, fluent, well-researched and extremely argumentative’ – Andrew Roberts.

Major Gordon Corrigan is a retired Gurkha officer, a member of the British Commission for Military History and Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society. Fluent in the Nepali language, he is now a freelance military historian and battlefield lecturer. He is a well known figure on the History channel. He is also the author of ‘Sepoys in the Trenches’.
