9780750959629: The Lie at the Heart of Waterloo: The Battle's Hidden Last Half Hour

Wellington's explanation of how Waterloo was won is shown to be a lie, as the author uses his experience as a serving soldier to explore the battlefield anew and dismantle the accepted history

All descriptions of the end of the Battle of Waterloo are incorrect, confused by the myth which Wellington promulgated, giving himself the credit for ordering the winning blow. At long last the truth has been teased out of the maze of evidence, revealing a tale, which—without the compelling evidence—would be nearly unbelievable. By analyzing eyewitness accounts the author has discovered the action was far more intricate and interesting than either Wellington described or has been concocted subsequently. This revolutionary account of the "Crisis" conjures fresh insights from long-established evidence as well as newly-published material, and demolishes many long-held theories. The author investigates how the myth was established and the maneuvers to which Wellington was forced to resort in order to keep the secret, including a suicide and blackmail. The 52nd Light Infantry can now firmly be credited with routing Napoleon’s left wing while the Prussians routed the right.

About the Author:

Nigel Sale served with 1st Green Jackets, 43rd and 52nd, the two regiments at the heart of Waterloo. In this book he uses his skills as a battalion intelligence officer to interpret and evaluate the sources and his knowledge of how soldiers respond on the battlefield to shed new light on eyewitness accounts.

Descripción The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Waterloo has, perhaps, a greater claim to have left its mark on Europe than any single battle before it, yet, even after two hundred years, there is confusion about how the battle ended. Readers will believe they know perfectly well how Wellington gave the order to the men of the First Foot Guards and they finished the business; but they will find themselves mistaken and intrigued. The Lie at the Heart of Waterloo is not the customary eulogy but a critical analysis of the carefully engineered misinformation that has often totally misled historians and students of military history for so long. The author uses quotations from eyewitnesses - not only those published shortly after the battle but also the most modern academic work - to tell the true story. The truth is as complicated and dramatic as anyone could desire. There is also an answer to the inevitable question: why has this knowledge been hidden for so long? The process of unravelling the mystery brings to life the horrifying reality of battle for the soldiers in Napoleonic warfare. There is also a whiff of suicide and blackmail, and senior officers reputations are not sacrosanct. This history shines a light on the confusion and challenges long-standing assumptions. It is supported by a sequence of specially produced full-colour maps. Nº de ref. de la librería AA79780750959629
