Launch of Waterloo to Wellington JULY 2015

New book celebrating the Duke of Wellington and his educational legacy

Joanna Seldon's book Waterloo to Wellington: From Iron Duke to Enlightened College was launched on 6 July at the East India Club in London. 

This new book celebrates the life and achievements of the Duke of Wellington and the school he inspired. Wellington College was originally intended as a school for ‘the children of deceased officers … in Our Royal Army or in the Army of the East India Company’ so it is particularly appropriate that this book was launched at the East India Club, which shares these military beginnings, having originally been for ‘the servants of the East India Company and Commissioned Officers of Her Majesty's Army and Navy’.
In this beautifully illustrated publication Joanna Seldon tells the compelling story of the Duke, the Battle of Waterloo, the foundation of Wellington College and its early years.
