The Speaker at the Club’s Waterloo Dinner is Gareth Glover. Gareth is a former Royal Navy officer who has studied the Napoleonic wars for over forty years. He has published over one hundred books on the subject, particularly concentrating on previously unpublished archival material, which has dramatically altered our understanding of many aspects, but particularly of the Battle of Waterloo, following his publication of the 14 volume Waterloo Archive and an additional Atlas. With all of this new research he has published the critically acclaimed ‘Waterloo, Myth & Reality’ bringing all of his discoveries together as a major revision of the Waterloo Campaign.
