The Battle. History of Waterloo

Alessandro Barbero



An extraordinary book written by one of Italy’s most engaging intellectuals. Barbero, historian and novelist, writes novels that double as historical essays. Franco Cardini

On the battlefield, among the troops: even if the narration is crammed with detail and the protagonists numerous, one never tires of reading Barbero, who is a natural storyteller.

Aurelio Lepre

Barbero’s prose captivates the reader.

Lucio Villari

A masterly reconstruction. The discipline and talent of Alessandro Barbero transform The Battle into a unique book, which like a film propels us into the heart of Napoleon’s last battle.

La Repubblica
