This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Wellington: The Road to the Lion’s Mound 1769-1852, courtesy of Amerigo-Citadelle.
In this first volume of a new biography of the Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, Daniel Res draws on a wealth of new facts, insights, and theories to provide a Central European context to this renowned figure in history.
The book has been praised by numerous historians, such as Andrew Roberts, who called it ‘charmingly idiosyncratic yet profoundly researched’, as well as Charles Esdaile, who admired its ‘imaginative’ approach and access to new material.
Res’ style of writing is also engaging and accessible, and the book is lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished images. This issue, three lucky winners will each receive a copy of the book.
Competition closes 6 November
