The Battle of Waterloo: Battles of the Nineteenth Century

The Battle of Waterloo: Battles of the Nineteenth Century

by David Pietrusza

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9Two clear and evenhanded series entries. Nardo describes the decisive battle that marked the end of the 17-year conflict between Rome and Carthage, and places it in historical perspective. Never shrinking from depictions of skilled brutality, he clearly delineates the struggle between the two most powerful nations of the Mediterranean. Likewise, Pietrusza details the personal and military battles of the hard-driving, ambitious Napoleon, as well as some of his domestic victories. One section highlights what is arguably his greatest accomplishment, the establishment of the Napoleonic Code. This balanced presentation offers a complete picture of the man and battle whose names have become synonymous. Both volumes include helpful chronologies, maps, black-and-white reproductions, and interesting sidebars. Especially valuable, particularly on the less familiar topic of Zama, are the books' annotated bibliographies and further reading sections.Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
