Eagle's Last Triumph

The Eagle's Last Triumph is a compelling analysis of Napoleon's victory at Ligny on 16 June 1815. The fi ghting lasted for six hours, but such was its bitterness that more than 20,000 were killed or wounded - at least one in seven of the soldiers who fought. This fascinating narrative examines the action in detail, with many maps, diagrams and first-hand accounts. Eyewitnesses described the battlefield afterwards as 'an unforgettable spectacle'. In this illuminating book, the author reveals how this important, but incomplete, triumph led just two days later to absolute defeat at Waterloo.
