For most of us Wellington equals Waterloo. But Waterloo was one peak only in the career of this phenomenal man, and it is the achievement of this major biography that it reveals the subtlety and full variety of Wellington's genius as well as the fascinating complexity of England in his time. A unique biography which draws on new material from private papers and Wellington's own uninhabited correspondence. Includes an Index.
