  • The Battle of Waterloo - a Foregone Conclusion

    The Battle of Waterloo - a Foregone Conclusion

    As a scientist, the author, Professor A.J. (Tony) Pointon's training is to test theories, not against how many times they have been repeated, or against the eminence of those repeating them, but against hard logic and hard facts

    Tony Pointon, a former Director of Research at the University of Portsmouth, has applied his love of problem-solving across a range from science to chess; from politics to legal cases; from investigating whether his boyhood hero from Stratford really was the great playwright Shakespeare, (as set out in his first book) to ensuring that a statue of Charles Dickens, (the hero of his next book), now stands in Portsmouth, city of his birth, and which nobody thought would happen

    In "The Battle of Waterloo - a Foregone Conclusion" Professor Pointon sets out to show that, regardless of contemporary propaganda, the Battle of Waterloo was not a "near run thing" as was widely believed at the time, but a victory that was totally inevitable
