Its not quite what you think at first, its called Wellington's Smallest Victory, then the subtitle slightly gives it away " The Duke, the Model maker and the Secret of Waterloo" Hmmm? I thought?
Peter Hofschröer (the Author), 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, incorporating seventy-five thousand tin-lead soldiers and stretching over four hundred square feet. Buy 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? If history is always written by the victor, never was this more true than Waterloo. Now, to correct a long injustice, Peter Hofschröer reveals the truth of one man's all-consuming and ruinous passion for historical accuracy.
I’m intrigued??? but at least I know what the new Dan Brown books gonna be about!!!!
