'What a charmingly idiosyncratic yet profoundly researched book Daniel Res’ is.'
Andrew Roberts, Historian and journalist
Author of Napoleon: A Life
‘The Duke of Wellington is not just a figure belonging to British history but also one belonging to that of the whole of Europe. In this imaginative work, Czech historian, Daniel Res, both reminds us of this fact and gives us a wealth of insight into the rich vein of material on the Napoleonic Wars to be found in the archives of mittel Europa’.
author of Napoleon, France and Waterloo: The Eagle Rejected, and Napoleon’s Wars: An International History, 1803–1815
