Synopsis

Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, was an iconic figure in the British and world's history, most known for his victory over Napoleon Buonaparte at Waterloo in 1815. With Marshal Ney and Prussian general Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Wellington defeated the French troops, bringing the Napoleonic era in Europe. Yet, the life of Wellington was full of other important events. Twice in his life, he took the position of Prime Minister as a member of the Tory cabinet. He also was appointed a Governor of Plymouth, a Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, and Constable of the Tower of London. His military career included numerous trips to different parts of the world, including Holland, India, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, and France. The prosperous army career of the Duke of Wellington includes many victories thanks to his strategic talent. The plans of his battles are still a subject of studies in military schools all over the world. A reader has a unique chance to learn about the most critical battles and political events of the Napoleonic era from the memoirs of Wellington. The book tells his life story from the beginning of his political career to the victory in the Battle at Waterloo.
