Wellington's Smallest Victory - Peter Hofschroer - Hardcover - Good

Regular price $24.95

The extraordinary and tragic tale of one man's obsession to build the greatest model of the greatest battle of all time. Peter Hofschroer tells the remarkable story of William Siborne, a Lieutenant in the British Army and expert in topography, who was commissioned to make a vast scale model of Waterloo. But why - at a time when celebrations of England's finest hour at Waterloo were so in vogue, and Wellington's fame was at its peak - did this exquisite model gain Siborne the enmity of the Duke and ultimately lead to his own ruin?
