    As a wartime commander and peacetime politician, the Duke of Wellington towered over British life throughout the first half of the 19th century. In 1856, four years after his death, Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone of Wellington College, a school in Berkshire for servicemen's sons. Handsomely illustrated with colour photographs and period images, this book charts the Duke's career, and reflects on how his character and intellect have shaped to this day the school named in his honour.
