WA Winter Lecture 2 – The Prince of Orange: Hero or Zero?


Was the Prince of Orange inept or has he been unjustly maligned?


About this event

January 5th 19.30-21.00 on Zoom

In this talk Andrew Field examines whether the Prince of Orange was an inexperienced, conceited and tactically inept senior officer or a much-maligned young man of courage and intelligence who has been harshly judged by the Anglo-centric histories of Waterloo.

After a military career spanning 43 years, Andrew Field has used his retirement to indulge his passion for the battle of Waterloo. Perhaps best known for presenting the French perspective of the campaign, he now concentrates on the contribution of Wellington’s allies to this fascinating battle.
