Waterloo: Causes, Courses and Consequences - Professor Sir Richard Evans FBA



Published on 1 Jul 2015

On the 200th anniversary of the battle, Professor Sir Richard Evans discusses the Battle of Waterloo, and places it in its historical context with proper credit given to the Prussian General Blucher: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/waterloo-causes-courses-and-consequences

The Battle of Waterloo was fought on 18th June 1815. The 200th anniversary has prompted widespread commemoration. But what was the battle about? Who fought it? Why did it take place in 1815 and at Waterloo? Finally, what were its consequences?

The answers to these questions are by no means as simple or straightforward as they seem, and will be explored in this illustrated lecture.


The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/waterloo-causes-courses-and-consequences
