At the end of Waterloo, readers will feel that they could command a battalion themselves. With historical accounts like this, who needs novels for excitement? --Wall Street Journal"

Waterloo may be a well-mined topic, but this new presentation is bound to satisfy lovers of military history .[Cornwell] injects a human element into a thorough and entertaining account. --Publishers Weekly"

No one, not even the great military historian John Keegan, describes or explains battle better than Cornwell .Cornwell illustrates so clearly and with such an assured sense of pacing that this messy and confusing set of battles is easier to follow, understand, and thus appreciate. --Library Journal, starred review"

Waterloo is a fabulous story, superbly told .Cornwell cannot be bettered. --Max Hastings, Sunday Times (London)"

Both vivid and scholarly .Readers new to the Waterloo campaign could hope for no better introduction and veterans will find fresh insights. --The Independent"

A great and terrible story told with energy and clarity by a writer who has a deep understanding of men in combat and why they do what they do. --The Economist"

The history of the Battle of Waterloo told by a master storyteller. --Shelf Awareness"

In his first nonfiction book, acclaimed historical novelist Cornwell (The Empty Throne, 2015, etc.) employs his storytelling skills to bring military history out of the textbook . A fascinating, detailed, and generously illustrated description of the battle that changed the fate of 19th-century Europe. --Kirkus Reviews"

From the Inside Flap

The blood-soaked battle of Waterloo would become a landmark in European history, to be examined over and again, not least because until the evening of the 18th, the French army was close to prevailing on the battlefield.

Now, brought to life by the celebrated novelist Bernard Cornwell, this is the chronicle of the four days leading up to the actual battle and a thrilling hour-by-hour account of that fateful day.

In his first work of non-fiction, Cornwell combines his storytelling skills with a meticulously researched history to give a riveting account of every dramatic moment, from Napoleon's escape from Elba to the smoke and gore of the battlefields. Through letters and diaries he also sheds new light on the private thoughts of Napoleon and the Duke of Wellington, as well as the ordinary officers and soldiers.

Published ahead of the upcoming bicentenary in 2015, Waterloo is a tense and gripping story of heroism and tragedy - and of the final battle that determined the fate of Europe.
