Wellington’s Waterloo Secret – How the 52nd Light Infantry Beat Napoleon
The most remarkable feature of all the current histories of the Battle of Waterloo is that no two descriptions of the end of the battle are the same. Why? Because the Duke of Wellington did not approve of the way the battle ended so he invented an alternative version, which has been faithfully accepted by historians, until now. But, because his version does not fit the other known facts, each historian has had to cobble together his or her own version – hence the variety.
This book concentrates of the ‘crisis’ of the battle, deduces what actually happened and adduces evidence both for the action and for the cover-up that followed.
