Well-known military historian, journalist and broadcaster Peter Snow tells the story of one of the world’s most famous and important battles; the Battle of Waterloo. Snow examines the strengths and weaknesses of the leaders, the armies and their weapons. Like all the greatest battles, Waterloo is steeped in controversy—the battle ended in decisive victory, but it might so easily have turned out differently. Snow explores all the questions the battle raised. Who made mistakes? Whose victory really was it? Would Wellington have won without Blücher and his Prussians? What was the main cause of the French defeat? 200 years on, relive one of the great battles in history with Peter Snow.
Peter Snow was born in Harcourt Street, Dublin. In 1963 he began presenting and reporting the ITN News and later became the main presenter of BBC’s Newsnight. Lately he has continued a career in television and writing.
