In celebration of the bi-centenary of the Battle of Waterloo June 18th, Lt-Gen Sir Barney White-Spunner will be introducing Of Living Valour, an insightful new work on the story of Waterloo.

As a former soldier himself, and using many unpublished sources, letters and diaries of ordinary British soldiers, Sir Barney White-Spunner  will tell the story of the against-the-odds triumph of the regimental officers and soldiers whose bravery and resolution achieved the victory that arguably changed the course of European history.

What was it like for those who fought and for their families waiting at home? Sir Barney White-Spunner brings their story alive for us.
