On Wellington a critique of Waterloo

Open All Close All

  • ""Clausewitz, the Western world's most renown military theorist, participated in the Waterloo campaign as a senior staff officer in the Prussian Army. His appraisal, offered here in an up-to-date and readable translation, criticized the Duke of Wellington's actions. Lord Liverpool sent his translation of the manuscript to Wellington, who pronounced it a 'lying work'. The translated commentary was quickly buried in Wellington's private papers, where it languished for a century and a half. Now published for the first time in English, Hofschr?er brings Clausewitz's critique back into view with thorough annotation and contextual explanation"--Dust jkt."
