FREE today: Wellington: A Military Life by Gordon Corrigon
"Next to a battle lost, the greatest misery is a battle gained." - Wellington
The Duke of Wellington, the most successful of British commanders, set a standard by which all subsequent British generals have been measured.
His defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815 crowned a reputation first won in India at Assaye and then confirmed during the Peninsular War, where he followed up his defense of Portugal by driving the French from Spain.
Gordon Corrigan, himself an ex-soldier, examines Wellington’s claims to greatness.
Wellington was in many ways the first modern general, combining a mastery of logistics with an ability to communicate with and inspire men of all ranks.
He had to contend not only with enemy armies but also with his political masters and an often skeptical public at home.
'Wellington: A Military Life' is a brilliant examination of one of Britain's most important historical figures.

FREE TODAY Grant: The Man Who Won the Civil War by Robin Neillands
Sam Grant made famous the expression ‘unconditional surrender’, which is how most of his campaigns ended — for his opponents.
A hard-drinking soldier in a hard-drinking army, he led the Union armies to victory, first in the West and then in the East, eventually compelling the main Confederate army under Robert E. Lee to surrender at Appomattox in 1865.
Yet at the beginning of the Civil War no one, least of all the man himself, anticipated that Grant would lead the Union forces to victory.
Ulysses S. Grant was a failure as a pre-war soldier. His subsequent business career was even worse. His emergence as a successful general and eventual promotion to Commander-in-Chief is a stunning example of how a soldier's peacetime career sometimes gives no indication of how he will perform in a major war.
Grant's advance down the Mississippi realized General Scott’s ‘Anaconda’ plan and ultimately cut the Confederacy in half. His capture of Vicksburg, just as Robert E. Lee's invasion of the North was halted at Gettysburg, spelt the end for the Confederacy.
Yet Grant's battles in 1864 cost the Union army dearly and he has never quite shaken off the reputation as a ‘butcher’ who bludgeoned down the Army of Northern Virginia by sheer weight of numbers.
Robin Neillands investigates how and why Grant emerged from pre-war obscurity and whether his ultimate victory was won by brains or brawn.
Robin Neillands is the author of several acclaimed works on the First World War including ‘The Death of Glory’, ‘The Great War Generals on the Western Front’, ‘Attrition: The Great War on the Western Front, 1916’ and ‘The Old Contemptibles’.

FREE The Battle of Trafalgar by Geoffrey Bennett
Off the Cape of Trafalgar, an epic sea battle was taking place which will be remembered throughout history.
The battle of Trafalgar has now passed into national mythology.
The expertise, courage and determination and confidence which gave Britain a victory of spectacular finality in October 1805 also provided her with one of her great legendary figures – a naval hero in life but much more like a national, if secular, saint in death.
However like the noise and smoke of battle, legends have a habit of obscuring facts and having lodged into the popular imagination are transcribed to history books.
In this masterly history, Geoffrey Bennett sets the battle in the context of the world-wide struggle of Napoleon, describes the ships, their crews and the tactics of the action.
In his scholarly but immensely readable account of the battle he discusses the preparatory manoeuvres and the mechanics of naval warfare in the age of sail.
