Reading, Ma.: Perseus/Harper Collins, 1999. Pp. xvi, 460. Illus, maps, notes, sources, index. $18.00 paper. ISBN:0-7382-0148-0.

Primarily a general biography of Wellington, Hibbert’s book gives the reader a look into the Iron Duke’s social and personal life, while not neglecting his military career. There are sufficient unusual or surprising items in Wellington, even military ones, to satisfy most readers interested in the Napoleonic period.
