'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 ...Hofschroer'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
