“ ... best of all is the splendidly dramatic account of Waterloo. The description of the battle has all the frenzied excitement of a racing commentary, but then Wellington suddenly stops and considers the human price of his greatest success; 40-50,000 men either dead or wounded. Wimbush's moving delivery of the great line, ‘Next to a battle lost, the greatest misery is a battle gained’, seems to bring us close to the heart of Wellington and the tragedy of war.”
