This session will feature: Dancing Into Battle: A Social History of the Battle of Waterloo by Nick Foulkes
August 16: Introduction - Chapter 16
August 30: Chapters 17 - Epilogue


Most books on Waterloo concern themselves with the tactics and military nuances of the battle.  This book looks at the battle from the perspective of those who lived and died in it, discovering what life for the civilians and soldiers directly impacted by this watershed event was like.
