Could you add Bernard Cornwell’s “Waterloo: The History of Four Days, Three Armies and Three Battles”, published in September 2014?

As a Waterloo ‘novice’ I found it an invaluable introduction – I read it in conjunction with John Keegan’s “The Face of Battle”.

Wish I’d had this list to choose from too!

    Hi Mike, The book section was set up to highlight new books and of course Bernard’s book came out over a year ago. It is unfortunately also a controversial choice, not because he is a novelist, but unfortunately it been criticised by many experts for some errors. That given, Bernard cannot be faulted for producing a vivid account and if we expand the booklist to include a suggested reading list, I will certainly include it.
