Overview

Fitchett's four-volume history is a stirring and frankly biased account of England's role as protector and defender of civilization against what the author terms "the wild-menace of Revolutionary France and the world-threatening despotism of Napoleon."  In this, the concluding volume, Fitchett focuses on The Hundred Days, Waterloo, and Napoleon's last years on St. Helena.

About the Author

William Henry Fitchett (1841-1928) was an Australian journalist, historian, novelist, minister, and editor.  He wrote three novels, and a number of successful popular histories—including Deeds that Won the Empire (1896)—but he viewed his work as the founding president of the Methodist Ladies' College of Melbourne to be his crowning achievement.
