A visually stunning examination of the battle that changed Europe forever: Napoleon’s last stand at Waterloo. In 1814, with Napoleon in exile, it looked as if his career was over. Then the Emperor escaped and made a last stand, which climaxed on June 18, 1815, at Waterloo. This compelling and richly illustrated treatment of the Hundred Days campaign includes reproductions of contemporary letters and documents that graphically portray Napoleon’s final overthrow, as well as information on the armies, commanders, battlefield topography, and the campaign’s consequences for Europe.
