Bryan Wells has studied the Battle of Waterloo for many years, and in 2014 visited the battlefield, and walked it for three days to try to get a better understanding of its details. As they say: "The victors write the history," and this is very true of this battle. Bryan believes that we (in the British world) have been the victims of a considerable manipulation of the facts in our understanding of the conduct and progress of the Battle of Waterloo during that one fateful day (Sunday, 18 June 1815). Did the Duke of Wellington win the battle, or did Napoleon lose it? That is the question!
