'Waterloo is one of the world's most famous and important battles. It was the climactic showdown between the military giants of the age- Napoleon and Wellington-who faced each other for the first and only time across the sodden rolling Belgian farmland south of Brussels on the morning of Sunday, 18 June 1815.
More than 15,000 French, British, Dutch and Prussian soldiers fought an epic, bloody and decisive encounter that ended the Napoleonic Wars and led to Bonaparte's final abdication and decades of international peace in Europe.
Written by well-known military historians, journalists and broadcasters Peter and Dan Snow, and edited by experts at the National Army Museum, The Battle of Waterloo tells the story of Napoleon's 100 Days Campaign, from his Elba escape to his defeat at Waterloo.
