His defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815 crowned a reputation first won in India at Assaye and then confirmed during the Peninsular War, where he followed up his defence of Portugal by expelling the French from Spain. Gordon Corrigan, himself an ex-soldier, examines his claims to greatness. Wellington was in many ways the first modern general, combining a mastery of logistics with an ability to communicate and inspire.

One consequence of this 'continental commitment' was that Britain suffered many more casualties in 1914-18 than in the Second World War, a factor that has coloured post-1945 attitudes to 'the Great War'. Yet, as Gordon Corrigan reveals, the First World War was neither unnecessary nor badly conducted - two claims made with such frequency in the 1960s that they became the new orthodoxy. The British Army did make mistakes during the First World War, but most were honest errors made by men as well trained and as well prepared as they could be, given the unprecedented expansion of the pre-1914 army into a force of over three million men and women."--BOOK JACKET+-+10040895853057ocn062796148book20060.28Corrigan, GordonBlood, sweat and arrogance : and the myths of Churchill's warMilitary history+-+K8719324752511ocn858843463book20140.15Corrigan, GordonA great and glorious adventure : a history of the Hundred Years War and the birth of Renaissance EnglandHistoryIn this succinct history of a conflict that raged for over a century, Gordon Corrigan reveals the horrors of battle and the machinations of power that have shaped a millennium of Anglo-French relationships1003ocn830354035book20130.26Corrigan, GordonA great and glorious adventure : a military history of the Hundred Years WarHistoryIn this succinct history of a conflict that raged for over a century, Gordon Corrigan reveals the horrors of battle and the machinations of power that have shaped a millennium of Anglo-French relationships966ocn041504251book19990.35Corrigan, GordonSepoys in the trenches : the Indian Corps on the Western Front, 1914-1915History+-+1905277136753ocn056646727book20040.70Corrigan, GordonLoos 1915 : the unwanted battle+-+0487277136701ocn056443551book20040.19Corrigan, GordonMud, blood and poppycock : Britain and the Great War+-+0401189585654ocn866922560book20140.27Corrigan, GordonWaterloo : a new history of the battle and its armiesFought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, by some 220,000 men over rain-sodden ground in what is now Belgium, the Battle of Waterloo brought an end to twenty-three years of almost continual war between revolutionary and later imperial France and her enemies. A decisive defeat for Napoleon and a hard-won victory for the Allied armies of the Duke of Wellington and the Prussians led by the stalwart Blùˆcher, it brought about the French emperor's final exile to St Helena and cleared the way for Britain to become the dominant world power.
