Wellington in India

The third book in Jac Weller's trilogy concerns the period before the future Duke of Wellington faced Napoleon's armies, but during which he earned his spurs as a military commander. It was in India that he gained his experience of strategy and tactics which he would put to masterly effect against his most formidable opponent in years to come. Jac Weller gives a complete account of Wellington's career in India, the battles and sieges he undertook and the lessons he learned that prepared him for the campaigns he would later fight against the best European armies. In his characteristic clear and readable style, Weller explores the first major steps in Wellesley's career, steps that provided him with the experience to deal so expertly with the problems facing him when the future of Britain and the whole of Europe lay within his hands. Wellesley's triumphs in India set him on the road that would eventually lead to Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo.

Jac Weller was a distinguished military historian, and an expert on weaponry. Wellington In India is part of his famous trilogy on the Duke, together with Wellington at Waterloo and Wellington in the Peninsula
