Front cover for the next issue of the BJMH

The forthcoming issue of the journal showcases the work of both experienced and up and coming scholars. For the main part the issue focuses on Wellington's Army. However, the issue also includes a debate between Professors Andrew Roberts and Charles Esdaile on whether Napoleon was great as well as papers by Huw Davies, Beatrice Heuser and Nick Lipscombe who reconsider the historical and strategic implications of the period.

The next issue of the BJMH will be out in time for the Waterloo200 commemorations in mid-June.
