Adventures In Historyland

I was looking into some of the criticism people tend to level at the Duke of Wellington, and while I was looking for the answers to my questions I ended up writing this rant.

One thought on “What Wellington Said.

  1. An excellent appraisal of the attitudes of Wellington, and a fair compliment to his success, and popularity too. It must be remembered that Britain was a very different place 200 years ago, and the different sections of society were far more ordered than they are today. His opinions would have come from his background, their obedience and admiration of him, from theirs. A very enjoyable read.
    Best wishes, Pete.
