Two centuries after the Battle of Waterloo, the French are still in denial. If Napoleon lost on 18 June 1815, then whoever rules the universe got it wrong.

How the French Won Waterloo - or Think They Did, Paperback (June 2016)
If Napoleon lost on 18 June 1815 (and that's a big 'if'), then whoever rules the universe got it wrong. As soon as the cannons stopped firing, French historians began re-writing history. The Duke of Wellington was beaten, they say, and then the Prussians jumped into the boxing ring, breaking all the rules of battle.

Author Biography - Stephen Clarke
In 2004, Stephen Clarke, a British journalist, published A Year in the Merde, an almost-true account of what may-or-may-not have happened in to him in the ten previous years he'd lived in France. He originally published the novel in a edition of 200 copies, with the intention of selling them through his website or giving them to his friends. However, following a reading in a Canadian bookshop in Paris and a write-up in a French newspaper, the book became a word-of-mouth bestseller and was published around the world. He lives in Paris where he divides his time between writing and not writing. For more information about Stephen Clarke and his books, visit his website- www.stephenclarkewriter.com
