Wellington's Smallest Victory Summary


Wellington's Smallest Victory: The Story of William Siborne & Great Model of Waterloo by Peter Hofschroer

'A first-class work of historical investigation.' Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon and Wellington The extraordinary story of how one man's obsession to build a huge model of Waterloo - the greatest model of the greatest battle of all time - incurred the wrath of the Duke of Wellington. 'A book that should be read and pondered deeply by anyone interested even vaguely in the Napoleonic wars . . . Hofschroeer's impeccable research shows that the Iron Duke was guilty of self-regarding pettiness, obsessive vanity, spin-doctoring and a shameful vendetta against a man whose only crime was to tell the truth.' Daily Express 'Mightily impressive.' Richard Holmes, author of Redcoat 'This important book reveals what happens when a loyal subject runs up against an establishment that will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.' Guardian
