Cambridge University Series 15: Did the Germans Win the Battle of Waterloo?

Hay Festival 2015, 

In 1815, after Europe had been at war for over 20 years, two large, hastily-mobilised armies faced each other at the small Belgian village of Waterloo to decide the future of Europe. Unknown to Napoleon or Wellington, the battle would be decided by a small, ordinary group of British and German troops given the task of defending the farmhouse of La Haye Sainte.
