This book is an interesting read for those who are intrigued by the Napoleonic Wars and by its characters There is no doubt Arthur Duke of Wellington was an extremely gifted and tireless commander one who had a knack for the details of warfare and a very thorough approach to front line reconnaissance He often went to the front lines to personally observe the French positions Several times he nearly got himself captured by skirmishers His cool headedness in battle enabled him to turn the tide in his favor when crises occurred His disdain of whimsical public opinion manipulated by sensationalistic and partisan London newspapers allowed him to forge ahead despite minor setbacks towards one victory after another in the Peninsular Campaign As a military man and a Protestant he was diplomatic towards his Catholic allies the Spanish and Portuguese He even ordered his troops to salute and present arms to the Blessed Sacrament if encountered in procession in the streetsOne disappointment in this great man’s life was his treatment of his wife at least up to the Battle of Waterloo the ending point of this book Although faithful to her as far as is known he grew cold towards her especially after she displayed inability to deal with the family finances and made some blunders Perhaps his long years of military service abroad made him deficient in regards to marriage It was good however to see that he did not lower himself to the scandalous behavior of Admiral Lord Nelson who publicly cohabited with another man’s wife Wellington abhorred this kind of scandalous behavior especially in public officials and military officersIt was a pleasure to read about Wellington’s crowning victory at Waterloo his only direct encounter with Napoleon Bonaparte Wellington actually believed that the outcome of the Peninsular War would have been different had Napoleon personally led the French in Spain and Portugal Instead Wellington would have the honor of dealing the knock out blow at the Little Tyrant’s attempted re usurping of France in 1815 Had Napoleon respected Wellington he might have succeeded at Waterloo Surprisingly Napoleon engaged in a slug fest a series of brutal frontal assaults that led to his demise In all fairness Wellington was aided tremendously by the return of Blucher’s Prussian Corps at the crucial moment However it was the Iron Duke who maintained his soldiers’ nerves and steeled their will to continue repulsing Napoleon’s massive assaults and hold the line until he could signal the pursuit of the retreating Imperial Eagles
