Wellington, The Iron Duke
by Richard Holmes
I love a biography with colour plates and maps - which this volume has in abundance. My 'in' to Wellington was really through our mountain, kunanyi/Mt Welly - always wondering how these far off men ended up with their names slapped on sacred things a world away from where they battled and raged against the might of, in Wellington's case, mainly Napoleon. Known for his military mastery (he's often referred to as Britain's greatest ever soldier)
