THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON: The Man Who Beat Napoleon

Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington, is the only professional soldier in English history to have served also as Prime Minister.

Indeed, his political career was longer than his military one.

He won the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, when he was only forty-six. He continued to serve his country until he was eighty-three, and enjoyed a unique place in the esteem of both people and royalty.

Yet, when he was in his teens, his mother had not faintest idea what to do with her ‘blockhead of a son’.

Part of the ‘Talking of History’ series by the same author. See ‘The End of the Monasteries’ and ‘Cardinal Wolsey’

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
