Hardcover, 134 pages. Published January 25th 2002 by Sutton Publishing (first published 1970). Interesting insight into one of Britain's greatest generals.

Elizabeth Longford's "Wellington" is a very short introductory life of the First Duke of Wellington. It is derivative of her full-length biographies of Wellington and Queen Victoria but manages to be solidly informative without being overwhelming. Longford, in highly readable prose, provides a fast moving survey of the military and political life of Arthur Wellesley, weaving in the kinds of personal details that hang a more human face on a man and a time much mythologized.

Elizabeth Longford, who died aged 96, was a creative woman in every sense. A biography of the poet and seducer Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, A Pilgrimage of Passion (1979), was less successful, perhaps because she found it difficult to empathise entirely with her subject. Elizabeth Longford lived a golden life which she richly deserved, as a writer and founder of a writing dynasty (after Antonia and Thomas came Judith Kazantzis, Rachel Billington and Kevin Pakenham, and in the next generation Rebecca and Flora Fraser), as a wife, matriarch and unique personality.

Elizabeth Pakenham, Countess of Longford, CBE (née Harman; 30 August 1906 – 23 October 2002), better known as Elizabeth Longford, was a British historian. She was a member of the Royal Society of Literature and was on the board of trustees of the National Portrait Gallery in London. She is best known as a historian, especially for her biographies of 19th-century luminaries such as Queen Victoria (1964), Lord Byron (1976) and the Duke of Wellington (1969).

This product should not be purchased. It is machined too tightly and virtually impossible to accommodate the hue light strip and the cover. I had purchased another manufacturer’s product that easily accommodated the hue light strip and cover. Avoid this product/ manufacturer.

As the sequel to Longford's "Wellington: The Years of the Sword," this covers the remaining 40 years of Wellington's life after Waterloo. Although the accounts of political life are not as exciting as either the Peninsular Wars or Waterloo itself, and one needs to do extra research to learn about the other characters involved, it is a fine account of English political life and the development of the British Empire from 1815 to 1855.

this 2 volume set is mentioned in every other book about wellington and waterloo and is superb.

Elizabeth Longford is a brilliant writer about Wellington, cannot get enough
Grosho
This is an absurdly abridged edition of Elizabeth Lonford's magnificent biography of the Iron Duke. The 1,400 pages of the original two volumes have been abridged to one tenth of their original length. The result is a book that maybe could be useful for children in elementary school. I own a one-volume abridged paper back version published in England and it runs over 500 pages. Avoid this edition, but do look for the original two volume version. You will not be disappointed.

Elizabeth Longford's "Wellington" is a very short introductory life of the First Duke of Wellington. It is derivative of her full-length biographies of Wellington and Queen Victoria but manages to be solidly informative without being overwhelming. Longford, in highly readable prose, provides a fast moving survey of the military and political life of Arthur Wellesley, weaving in the kinds of personal details that hang a more human face on a man and a time much mythologized. This work is clearly intended for the general reader; serious students of the Duke should track down Longford's two volume biography ("Years of the Sword" and "Pillar of the State"). Those looking for a detailed military biography should also seek elsewhere; this volume only lightly skims the surface of Wellington's long military career. This is the kind of book a serious student of Wellington provides as an introduction to the subject to his less serious friends and relatives.
